Asher’s Story

Site created on August 2, 2019

Welcome to Asher's Caring Bridge Website.  On August 1, 2019,  Asher was diagnosed with bi-lateral Wilm's tumor.  This is a type of pediatric cancer that shows a tumor on each kidney.  As you can imagine this is a very scary time for Nadya, Mason and family.  Asher immediately started chemotherapy after diagnosis and will have chemo for at least 12 weeks with the possibility of radiation.  After 6 weeks of chemo the doctors will determine if the tumors are small enough to remove surgically.  If they are still too big they will wait until the completion of twelve weeks of chemo.    If you would like to bring a meal you can click on the ways to help tab and sign up under the planner.  We will be updating this site to keep people informed and also when there are additional needs.    Thank you for loving and supporting our family.  We appreciate all prayers and know that we have a big God that is in control of this situation.

Hi! Here is an update on Asher! 

We were discharged today! Asher is stable, but we still have many things to watch for at home as the infection can turn serious quick if not managed well with antibiotics. Asher is in a good mood. He is giving lots of smiles and appears to be comfortable! Some good news from this past week is that Ashers three month post chemo scans were clear with no evidence of cancer!!! 

Thank you for your continued prayers and support!!
