Meet Ava, Morgan, and Zach Rader. Zach is currently deployed overseas, Morgan is 7 months pregnant, and sweet Ava, 5 years old, was just diagnosed with Stage 3 Kidney Cancer (Wilms Tumor).
Once Ava has recovered from surgery (to remove one kidney with its softball-sized tumor and some lymph nodes), she will begin radiation and inpatient chemotherapy treatments.
Since Morgan is pregnant, she will be limited in her involvement during radiation and chemo; a restriction made even more challenging because Ava has autism.
Zach is hoping to receive approval to come home early from deployment, but until then Morgan and Ava are on their own.
Please help us support this beautiful little girl and her family as they face an overwhelming battle.
