On March 17, 2016 tragedy struck the Hashimoto family when then 7 year old Tavin Hashimoto was diagnosed with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia). His parents Davin & Tammi-Lyn Hashimoto of Kula, Maui were devastated. Their energetic, fun-loving, amazing child was about to face a battle where by all statistics provided very little hope. Davin & Tammi-Lyn, little brother Taylor, little sister Taylyn, and all of Tavin's family and friends rallied around them with love, prayers, and support. As Tavin began his chemotherapy treatments it was quite evident that this little miracle was not going out without a fight. After just one round of treatment Tavin's scan came back to show there were no cancer cells found in his body. Tavin kicked cancers butt!!! Knowing that Tavin's healing came from God alone we rejoiced in HIS victory. However, we knew that this battle was not yet over. Tavin had to endure another six months of chemotherapy treatments to ensure the cancer was completely gone. Davin & Tammi-Lyn stayed with Tavin at Kapiolani Hospital on Oahu during this time and were only able to see their other two children when they flew over on the weekends. They communicated with their family and friends over facetime and missed out on so many precious moments. After a long six month stay Tavin came home!!! He was happy, healthy, and able to enjoy being a kid again. Tavin still had to take some medication and had to go back to Oahu once a month for a check up but month after month each report came back better than the next.
Now here we are one year later. In early March 2018 Tavin went back for his routine monthly check up. This one was different. This one brought news that everyone who loves Tavin never wanted to hear. The Leukemia has come back. We were once again devastated and heartbroken. This news came 1 day shy of the terrible news we received a year ago. Tavin's dad Davin described it as "a punch to my stomach". A battle that we thought was over has come back for round two.
But the battle is not ours..........OUR GOD is Tavin's GREAT PHYSICIAN, HEALER, PROVIDER, and STRONG TOWER. So again, we stand in faith, we stand together, and we BELIEVE that Tavin WILL BE VICTORIOUS!!!!! Tavin WILL BE HEALED!!!! Tavin WILL BEAT CANCER AGAIN!!!!
Tavin and his family will be packing up their lives once again to head to Kapiolani Medical Center to begin treatment and a bone marrow transplant for Tavin. Please fight with us as we gather together to support the Hashimoto family. We humbly ask for your support financially to help with the day to day living expenses such as food, and supplies, as well as travel cost to and from Oahu. Most of all please pray for Tavin, his family, and friends as they fight through difficult time.
