Story

Ashley
Ashley is a 17 year old highschool Senior who was diagnosed with two types of rare agressive tumors. 3 months before her 17th birthday we received the shocking diagnosis that she had medulloblastoma. They told us she was at high risk that this tumor would be highly agressive and shed need to undergo surgery asap. On november 8th 2013 Ashley under went surgery to remove the tumor from her cerebellum. We remained positive that our daughter would be fine we thought this was the worst thing that could have happened but to our suprise this would be the least of our worries. The doctor came out about an hour into surgery and explained to us that our daughter had a stroke during surgery. They told us that she would be okay but she may have to learn to walk and talk again. That was exactly the case ashley had to relearn to walk she had to relearn how to do everything again. The stroke caused her to lose majority of her long term memory. We thought the intensive therapy would help and that shed go into remission after her last round of chemo last month. Our family and ashley remained hopeful. Last month when ashley underwent scans to ensure that the tumor wasn't returning to her cerebellum her doctor noticed a small pertruding bump on the bottom of foot and asked us to have it looked at. Doctors orders we had her foot looked at and a few weeks ago it was diagnosed as Fibroma sarcoma Cancer of the foot it is a buildup of fiber tissues on the bottom of the foot. As we thought our journey would be over it was not. Ashley will undergo surgery on jun 11th 2014 to remove the tumor from her foot. We ask for love and prayers and well wishes for our daughter. Thank you for taking the time to read her story.
