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.  

Exodus 14:14 - The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.

Romans 8:28 - And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:37 -  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

On June 4, 2019 our beloved 10 year old Tavin Hashimoto ran into the arms of Jesus. Tavin fought a hard battle with leukemia for the past 2 1/2 years. His strength, positivity, and courage inspired so many people around the world. Tavin did not lose his battle with cancer. HE IS HEALED!!! There is no more pain, no more suffering, no more sickness or disease. Tavin has been made whole again. The Hashimoto family would like to thank everyone for their prayers, love, support, and encouragement through this time. While Tavin will be missed by so many here on earth we stand strong knowing we will see him again one day. God is faithful and we will continue to stand on His promises. Tavin you are and will always be #tavintuff. We love you!!!

Update: Praise God! After 9 straight days of high fevers, the fevers are gone. He spent all day today fever free. God is good! Please still keep him in your prayers he still has mouth sores, but it's starting to get better. Because of the sores, he has a hard time eating and if you know Tavin, he loves his food. Tavin has been so strong through all of it and God has been so faithful. Thank you all for your continuous prayers. Isaiah 40:31 #tavintuff Tammi-Lyn Hashimoto

Update: Praise God! This is the third day without fevers. Tavin is doing really well and still going strong. He's still on antibiotics, but they are slowly removing them one by one. His mouth sores are healing nicely and he doesn't have pain anymore. His ANC is still at 0, but hopefully it will start to shoot up soon. He is going for a spinal tap today and they will inject his spinal fluid with chemo as a precautionary action because cancer likes to hide in the spinal fluid. Please keep him in your prayers that everything goes smoothly and there will be no side effects. God has been really good and is keeping Tavin so strong. Thank you all for your prayers. Romans 8:31 #tavintuff

Update: Not sure if everyone saw this post after his good news post so I'm going to post again. Sorry if some people think that he's done. I just want to clarify that he still needs to go through 1 more round of chemo and a bone marrow transplant. The 1st round of chemo did its job and killed all the leukemia in his bone marrow. The 2nd round is a clean up round in case any more cancer comes back. After that he will need a bone marrow transplant because his bone marrow cannot fight off the cancer if it comes back. So he still has a long journey, but God is still in control. Keep your prayers coming and Thank you everyone for all the support.
