Ashtyn loves to cheer, but in April 2018, she was wobbly and dizzy during practice. When she then started having frequent headaches and vomiting, it was cause for concern and she was taken to the eye doctor. The eye doctor sent Ashtyn to the ER, where an MRI was performed. Days later, Ashtyn was diagnosed with brain cancer and the oncologist referred them to St. Jude. Ashtyn underwent a brain surgery after arriving at St. Jude, as well as proton therapy and chemotherapy. She also received physical and occupational therapies and even started kindergarten through the St. Jude school program. She has now finished treatment and returns to St. Jude regularly for checkups and scans.
