Soaring High for Cash

Olympic Flight Museum

Sunday February 26, 2011 from 3-7 pm


Cassius fight against cancer began December 20, 2011 just shy of his 3rd birthday.  A large lump was found protruding from his back which landed Cassius and his family at Providence St. Peter hospital emergency room. After tests had been run, it was evident that Cash needed to seek further treatment as a tumor of some sort was found.  After seeking treatment at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital Cash was diagnosed with a stage 3 Wilms tumor. After Cassius diagnosis he was scheduled for surgery within days.  The surgery lasted 7 hours and the tumor along with his left kidney were removed. The tumor was large enough to fill a grown mans hands cupped together. His surgery was said to be successful. After his 11 day stay in the hospital Cash began yet another journey.  He has endured 6 radiation treatments and has begun his 6 month stretch through chemotherapy.  Cash and his family have to travel to these appointments weekly. The cost of travel itself is costly.  Through this whole process of treatment Cash has been a warrior as his mother Jenni has said of him. He rarely has a complaint and if anything is said it may be that  he feels like "his tummy might get sick." All who have heard Cash's story have been touched at the strength and cheer of this little boy. Please help keep Cassius strong and win in his fight against cancer!
