The purpose of this fundraiser is to donate enough money to cover the medical expenses, medications, travel expenses, etc. for Ava Blaser

Ava is a bright and beautiful 3 year old little girl, born September 18, 2007. Ava was diagnosed with stage 5 adolescent kidney cancer (Wilms Tumors) on June 20th 2011. Ava has undergone 6 weeks of Chemo therapy in hopes to shrink her tumors at least 50% with the objective of removing Ava's left kidney so long as treatment went as was hoped. unfortunately a recent MRI showed that only some of Ava's tumors shrank 50% and some did not. Ava is a stage 5 (it only goes up to stage 5 in kidney cancer) because she has tumors on both of her kidneys, the left side worse than the right. According to Ava's doctors, her tumors are in a very bad spot on the right kidney, and there is not such good functioning in her left kidney. Ava has just started another round of chemo this past Thursday ( Aug. 11, 2011) The new objective is to fully remove her right kidney, as the tumors on that kidney cannot be removed at all due to where they are, and to saver as much of her left kidney as they can in order to be functional. Ava is scheduled for a biopsy on September 26, 2011 ( 8 days after her fourth birthday) however with her left kidney not functioning well, we will have to wait until after Ava’s biopsy for any further information. Because of Ava’s illness, Ava’s mother is unable to continue working for the time being, Ava’s father had been laid off and out of work for two years up until the beginning of 2011. Ava has two older siblings as well. We are continuously praying for Ava and her Family and will continue to do so no matter what the circumstances. Any and all donations, thoughts, and prayers are beyond words appreciated. Thank you!!!!!
