In January 2015, Chad and Jenna’s world turned upside down. Their daughter, Ashley, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Jenna will never forget the very moment they heard the news, saying, “It drops you to your knees.”

Ashley has bravely faced months of intense testing and treatments. She has twice lost her blonde locks to chemotherapy, but she has never lost her smile or spirit for life. Thanks to people like you, she’s been surrounded in comfort and cheer at Sanford Children’s Hospital, a special place where imagination and play are as important to healing as world-class medical care.

Ashley finished treatment for leukemia in April of 2017, and is doing great!
