Yup – the lil cheeseballer is FOUR today!
Still cancer free, and lovin life, his new baby sister, and his puppy dogs and stickers. He loves his brother Colty too – sometimes. That’s just how brothers are.
It’s still hard for me to believe it was 2.5 years ago that Sweet Cashy was diagnosed with a stage IV PNET brain tumor on his optic nerve and rushed to Salt Lake City for emergency surgery.
Cashy spent his 2nd birthday in the hospital, fighting for his life. Within 3 months of his 2nd birthday, Cashy was at a point where he had not eaten in 40 days, he had suffered cardiac arrest, and a stroke. Traditional treatments were killing him.
He almost lost too……
Refresh your memory HERE if you haven’t read Cashy’s story.
Cashy’s 3rd birthday was spent in Montana, happy and healthy. Cashy was cancer free. His dad Mike had taken him to the Montana Capitol to meet the politicians. Tell their story. Lobby for compassion.
By Cashy’s birthday in 2011 – dismal times were ahead – though none of us knew it. The politicos in Montana completely ignored Cashy’s story – as did many of the medical marijuana industry folks. Cashy’s wonderful story of bravery and compassion and the fight for his life was virtually ignored.
It still is in a majority of the state of Montana.
As the law changed in July of 2011 – so did Cashy’s fate. The new law was very restrictive – very prohibitive.
Mike cut his garden down. The 16 strains that had been working for Cashy were gone. Which one helped him? We’ll never know….
Cash was cancer free. His oil consumption was greatly reduced. We shoulda been home free right?
Cancer is a bitch – and an evil one at that. It came back – with a vengeance.
The fight was on. As you know – Cashy went through another battle in December of 2011. Another Christmas in a hospital, far from his home.
Another SUCCESS too! We celebrated a cancer free MRI in Salt Lake City in February 2012 with Cashy’s family at the Badda Bing.
Cashy is surrounded by a HUGE and very loving family – and those celebrations are so wonderful – and full of love. Cashys great grandmas and elders are so grateful to have him alive – they share his story everywhere.
Cashy’s story is such a wonderful one to share re: success. As far as support from Montana and it’s politicians – it’s a disgusting crime. We could educate so many with a small child……an innocent child. A wonderful child with such a brave and loving family.
We could all learn by their example.
All Cashy knows is – he wants to live – and play with his stickers, cars, and maybe his brother if they’re not squabbling. He doesn’t know any propaganda or fear. He doesn’t worry about social stigma.
LIFE – is what matters.
LOVE – surround him with it.
SUPPORT – share their story – and please support the Cash Hyde Foundation.
This family – no matter what – despite anything thrown at them – continues every day to help others. Pay it Forward. Fight the fight against childhood cancer and help to save others children.
Even while in hospital fighting for Cashy’s life – they help others.
Currently – there are about 20 Reggae Runners distributed nationally – sharing Cashy’s message of faith and hope.
That fleet is about to double – thanks to DooBons in California. Originally from Montana – they heard of Cashys story – and chipped in to increase the fleet.
40 more Reggae Runners out there helping children to fight cancer with smiles and laughter – directing folks to the Cash Hyde Foundation site – where folks can find the supporters and look for help for themselves.
