The girl in the polka dot hoodie is Jaydans best friend from preschool. Her name is Ashlyn and she is such a sweetheart! She is such a strong and amazing little girl! In July 2009 they found out she had cancer on her kidney. Since then she has had her kidney removed, chemo and radiation a few times, part of her lung removed and just a couple weeks ago had one of her lungs collapse! Her and her mom rode with us to the field trip because Jaydan and Ashlyn told my aunt they HAD to be together :-) Her mom and I both agreed that once she get cleared from her doctor that she is okay to normal activities again after her lung collapsing that we are going to set up a play date for them.
