About Ashley Rose

Ashley Rose Miller was a true inspiration for everyone. Here is her story.

Ashley was born on September 16, 1994. She was sweet, polite and smart.  She did awesome in school and was happy to keep a low profile.  Ashley was outspoken when she wanted to be heard; otherwise she was a people   watcher.  Ashley loved dancing and in her sophomore year she joined the drill team.  She was involved in church and participated in the teen program.  Life was beautiful until it wasn’t. 

On March 31, 2010 we learned that Ashley had cancer.  We were devastated!   On April 5th, 2010 we told our beautiful teenager that she had cancer.  Unsure of how Ashley would react, the doctor was with us to answer her questions. The doctor explained that chemo treatment was necessary and Ashley asked if she’d lose her hair. The doctor said, “Yes” and the room got so quiet, you could hear a pin drop.  Ashley then said, “Dang! Why can’t it be just the hair on my legs?” The silence was broken and everyone laughed.  Ashley had a wonderful sense of humor.  

Ashley was our “Warrior Princess”.  She battled 15 months of tests, treatments and hospital stays with incredible strength and grace.  However, no amount of prayer could change the outcome.  Ashley passed away on June 30, 2011.

Cancer takes the life of 7 children every day. Sadly, federal funding for childhood cancer is very low because research is focused on adult cancer.  What can we do!  If we work together, we can make a difference.  Can we count on you?
