Austin’s Army Lincoln

Austin Chea is a 6-year-old Lincoln boy who attends Saylesville Elementary School.  In October of 2017 Austin was diagnosed with Leukemia.  Austin’s diagnosis led him to be admitted to the Oncology Unit at Hasbro Children’s Hospital where he began his chemotherapy treatment.  Austin’s Chemotherapy program is anticipated to last around 2 years.  Understandably, Austin’s diagnosis turned his parents’ world upside down.  David and Vannary, Austin’s parents, had to make significant changes to their lives. Both of Austin’s parents needed to take substantial time out of work to help take care of their son.  Since Austin requires around the clock care, neither parent has been able to resume a full time work schedule.  This has caused some significant financial challenges for Austin’s family.  Please help support Ausin's family during this difficult time.

Another way that the community is rallying together to help is with the creation of “Austin’s Army”. This campaign is being spearheaded by a Lincoln High School Junior named David Du.  In September of 2017 David was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  David, along with the assistance of Captain Gould, have started the campaign, “Austin’s Army”.  One of the goals of the campaign will be to help raise funds to assist the Chea family with some of the financial challenges incurred as a result of Austin’s illness.
