St. Jude Children's Research HospitalAs a loves animals. One of his first words was ‘gaul,’ the Amish word for horse, and as a little boy, he wanted one of his own to ride. In August 2012, Asa’s parents finally got him a pony. For Asa, it was a dream come true. For his parents, it was a sign life was returning to normal. In late 2011, when a mole appeared on Asa’s chin, his parents noticed it and were watchful. In early 2012, after the mole appeared to grow, Asa had an appointment with a dermatologist. A biopsy was done, and Asa’s family waited uneasily for the results. Asa underwent surgery, during which the mole was removed. The news wasn’t good.
