Asher's 8th Birthday Fundraiser
For my birthday this year, I have decided to ask my friends and family NOT to give me gifts but instead, to donate what they would've spent on a gift to CHOC. Why would an almost 8-year-old do this? Well, first of all, because I have so much already and I don't need more. (That doesn't mean there's nothing I want. I am saving my allowance for The Lego Movie 2 game for my Nintendo Switch and I'm getting close!) But more importantly, I want to be able to help other kids who have Fevers of Unknown Origin like me. I have been very blessed to have some of the best healthcare around and my doctors at CHOC are working hard to find out why I have a fever. Can you believe that I have had a fever since July 8th 2020?! And we still don't know why! Thankfully lots of people helped me get the medical care I need and I am getting better. For a whole year, my fever was over 102 and I felt terrible. But last year, I was able to see some awesome doctors at CHOC who have helped me start to feel so much better and my fever is going down, down, down! Even though my parents and I still don't have answers for why I have a fever, there are other kids who also have fevers and are still feeling really icky. I want to do what I can to help other kids feel better too. So for my birthday, please contribute to CHOC and help me help other kids with fevers!
