Hey friends and family of the Ash Family - thanks for stopping by. This fundraiser is to help a truly wonderful family through an extraordinarily hard time.
On April 18, 2018 Joel Ash was diagnosed with a large brain tumor wrapped around his corpus callosum (the part that connects the two halves of the brain). On April 25th, a biopsy was performed and a few days later he was diagnosed with a very aggressive Grade 4 Glioblastoma. At this time, there is no cure for this type of brain cancer, only prolonging treatments. His oncologists believe the best treatment is a combination of radiation multiple times a week in Jacksonville and oral chemo medication.
The family plans to meet with a doctor at Duke University soon to possibly explore other options, so this fundraiser will start with helping fund that trip - travel expenses, lodging, food, missed work for the members of the family who will be traveling with Joel.
If you can find it in your heart to donate, please do. Any amount will help - even $5 will buy a meal for someone or a cup of coffee or two.
*When you donate, it will give you an option to add a 'tip' to support GoFundMe as the site does not take a percentage off the donations. Please note this is optional. Select 'Other Amount' in the drop down box and enter 0 for the 'tip' if you wish not to do this.
