Dear Family and Friends,
If you are not already aware, Ryan and Allison Agnew’s daughter Aspen has been diagnosed with DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma), an in-operable malignant brainstem tumor and will soon be undergoing radiation therapy at Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City. Once the radiation treatments are finished she will start a clinical trial. To date there is no cure. Since the prognosis is not good it will take all of our combined strength and prayers to get them through this crisis. Our focus is on Aspen so Ryan and Allison will be taking much time away from their work to assist, comfort and care for her , as well as new baby brother Anthony. Ryan and Allison have good medical insurance but regardless of how good the of coverage, there will be tens-of-thousands of dollars of out-of-pocket expenses. Your financial assistance to help supplement their incomes and to aid in absorbing a portion of the hospital/medical cost would be huge. We will all work extremely hard to find a cure for Aspen but in the interim please help support Ryan and Allison financially so they can stay focused on Aspen’s care and well-being.
God bless you and thank you for your generosity.
The Agnew and Weiss Families
