The best radiation treatment for 1yr old Asher’s brain cancer is only available overseas. Help him get there!

This precious boy was 14 months old when he was diagnosed with a brain tumour in June 2020. It turned out to be a rare cancer called ATRT (Atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumour). Asher’s family are devastated.

The tumour was removed only a few days after diagnosis however this cancer is known to be very aggressive which means Asher is going through intensive chemotherapy for 6 months and will need radiation too.

Radiation therapy will increase Asher’s chance of survival. Because of his young age, the best option for Asher is proton therapy. Unfortunately this type of radiation is not available in New Zealand. With this knowledge, we’re raising funds to help get the Green family overseas to a clinic that offers proton therapy (likely in the US) so that Asher can get the best treatment for his age and diagnosis.

Asher has had many challenges during his treatment so far, but through it all he has continued to have a smile on his face! He has accrued over 500 beads of courage already, representing the many tests, procedures and experiences he’s been through in the three months since his diagnosis. The resilience and endurance he has shown is an inspiration to us all!

Any donations received will go towards treatment, flights and living costs for the Green family while overseas. Any additional funds remaining after expenses will be donated to Child Cancer Foundation and Ronald McDonald House who have been a great support to the Green family.

Thanks so much for all your support.
