Aschemund, his younger sister and parents moved into their new home on Fort Gregg-Adams military base when, 24 hours later, Aschemund was admitted to the hospital. There, doctors diagnosed him with ALL. His family wondered how they could navigate the world of cancer. They just moved to the area and felt so alone.

Then something wonderful happened.

Connor’s Heroes stepped into their lives, carrying a Heroes Bag and Backpack full of wonder. Aschemund smiled when he pulled out gift after gift. His smile got even bigger when he found the iPad. At that moment, the feeling of isolation went away.

No matter how difficult treatment gets (and it has been very difficult), Aschemund remains positive. His parents are comforted knowing that Connor’s Heroes cares for the whole family. Whether it’s a gift card for their favorite gas station, coming to a Heroes Art Session, or a gift for him and his little sister Kialauni, the support never stops.

Connor’s Heroes is by their side.

“The day we found out about Aschemund’s cancer was the hardest day of our lives as parents. Connor’s Heroes reassured us that we will not make this journey alone.” — ASCHEMUND’S FAMILY
