We’ve never met, but over the course of the last month we’ve heard your story. Your friend, Kristen Confroy, has told us all about your strength, your commitment to your team, and your positive attitude, even in the face of unimaginable challenges and setbacks.
Seasons end, shirts change, but the mark you leave on others can last a lifetime. We talk a lot about that at YXU, leaving your mark, but you live it every day. You’ve shown us that even when times seem dark, you shine on. You’ve reminded us that even when the odds are stacked against us, losing is not an option. You led your teammates, your sisters, on a run to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament. And while it wasn’t the result any of us hoped for, after this month you have more than your teammates behind you, you have an entire Army ready to rally behind you. Not bad for a seven year old.
Thank you for letting the YXU community become a part of Ashlyn’s Army. Your story will forever be a part of ours, and we are so thankful for that. Stay strong and get well soon. When times are tough just remember...you’ve got an entire Army behind you now, and we’ve got your back.
Sincerely,The YXU Team
