Alex Ashton is my 22 year old son who was diagnosed with B-Cell Lymphoma in October 2018...He took a leave of absence from work to receive treatment over the following 6 months...Since the Chemo ended he went back to work...recently we found out through a PET scan that the cancer is still there and Alex is now receiving treatment farther from home at OHSU Knight Cancer Center in Portland, Oregon...he will not be able to work and is not eligible for unemployment.  He can apply for Social Security once the Stem Cell Transplant has taken place.  We are currently living only on my Social Security. We continue to make numerous trips to Corvallis for 3 to 4 days of hospital stay Chemotherapy in preparation for the transplant before we have to spend at least a month in Portland for the transplant procedure.  We need to also maintain our home in Newport, Oregon so we have a place to come home to when Alex's treatment is complete....I have no idea how I am going to do this...This has been spiritually, emotionally, physically, and financially devastating....I need help to save my son...any help would be appreciated beyond what words can express....Thank you

June 12, 2019....Today we received the tentative schedule for our trip to Portland....looks like we will leave on July 8th and it will more likely be 2 months we will be there, not just a month....We do what we have to do. Alex will therefore be spending his 23rd birthday (July 12th) in the hospital...Thanks for all the support...continue to pray...Blessings to all

June 8, 2019..
We just returned home from 4 days in Corvallis where Alex received his last round of Chemo before we head to Portland for the Stem Cell Transplant...we don't have exact dates yet. Alex is doing really well...he did end-up shaving his head recently...it was inevitable I guess. We want to sincerely thank each and every one of you who have been kind enough to donate to the campaign and for all the prayers.....Words can not express how grateful we are...Alex and Mom

I want to thank those of you who have donated to Alex's campaign. We appreciate it more than we could ever express. We have such a long road ahead of us and it is comforting to know that there are those of you, who not even knowing us, are willing to help. May God bless each of you.
