Help Baby Daxton Fight Cancer

In October 2016, the Olsons welcomed a happy and healthy baby boy named Daxton to their growing family. At the age of 3 months, Daxton was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor classified as astrocytoma.

According to the National Cancer Institute, childhood astrocytoma can be benign or malignant; causes are unknown; and signs and symptoms are different for each child. Astrocytoma is a tumor that starts in star-shaped brain cells called astrocytes, and is a type of glial cell.

Glial cells hold nerve cells in place, bring food and oxygen to the cells, and help protect them from disease and infection. Gliomas are tumors that form from glial cells and an astrocytoma is a type of glioma, the most common type of glioma diagnosed in children.

However, baby Daxton’s astrocytoma has been a mystery to the medical team at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, as well as with medical teams from around the country at this particular type of growth.

While initial tests proved inconclusive, his doctors believe the tumor is growing at a slow rate. In February, Daxton began a 15-month chemotherapy treatment plan, causing the family to travel back and forth from Seaside to Portland each week.

Although the Olsons’ insurance covers some of the medical costs, the mounting medical bills, travel expenses and a slowing workload at their tile and masonry business due to time away, has made their life more complicated and a bit topsy-turvy for Daxton’s two siblings.

Leaving little time for pause, the Olsons and baby Daxton have a long road ahead.

How to Help

Another way to help with the added medical costs the Olsons have incurred is to donate to Dimes for Daxton, an funding site organized by family friend Jon Rahl. “Dimes for Daxton is a small gesture that can help ensure this family is able to keep up with all of their bills while giving as much attention as possible to their little guy and two other children.

*Dena’s will match funds to help baby Daxton donated while in our shop.
