My Story

Ashlee fought cancer starting in June 2007 with a lump on her shoulder. After much testing we found out it was Synovial Sarcoma. She did 8 rounds of chemo, 10 hours in surgery and 6 week of radiation and was "cancer free" in June 2008. In December 2008 she complained of pain in her left side. We found out on January 5, 2009 that she had cancer again and she only had 6 months to a year to live. She passed away on November 15, 2009. Ashlee was an amazing young girl that loved life. She went through lots of pain and suffering enduring procedures, tests, pokes and being sick always with a smile on her face. We went out to Maryland for some experimental treatment and she did extra blood work and other tests to help them understand how the treatment was helping or not helping. Ashlee enjoyed her friends and family the most. Hanging out with friends either at the house or the mall and she was happy. She inspired lots of people in her short 14 years of life. She is greatly missed and will never be forgotten. She would love that you are raising money to find a cure so that other families and children don't have to go through what she went through.
