Late in the summer Ashlyn found out she had leukemia and has been going through chemo for the past few months and is now in remission.
Today Ashlyn is having a bone marrow transplant from her sister, Hayley (what a hero of a sister!) We are wearing our "Save Ashlyn" t-shirts in support; what's really cool is that there is a Facebook group that Ashlyn's family started to gather photographs of everyone wearing their "Save Ashlyn" shirts.
T-Shirts were designed and printed by Smash in Des Moines and I understand that they donated the graphic for the family to use. (Of course, its a spoof of the famous water tower in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.)
Update (1/23 3:30 pm - via Facebook): Danny says the transplant is complete. All went well with Ashlyn. Hayley had a pretty rough go but is slowly getting better. Hayley is a HERO!
