Team Ashtyn Foundation, Steel Grill team up to help 2-year-old girl fighting brain tumor

Posted: Updated:

The community is rallying together to help a 2–year–old girl recently diagnosed with a with a brain tumor.

The Steel Grill in Gering is one of the latest sponsors in the fight to help keep 2–year–old Kyra Eads healthy.

Little Kyra was recently diagnosed with a Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Giloma (DIPG) tumor.

The steel grill is hosting a two–night fundraiser in conjunction with the Team Ashtyn Foundation to help raise money for the Eads family.

The Eads family will receive five percent of all profits from the Steel Grill fundraiser, as well as any donations made through Team Ashtyn.

The fundraiser runs from 5-8p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. 

Jennifer Schwartz, President and Co-Founder of the Team Ashtyn Foundation says without the community's generous support,  none of this could have been possible.

"Our local non-profit would not exist without the rally, with out the support of this community, that's what makes this all happen. The Steel Grill was awesome in stepping up and partnering with is as we make a difference for this family going through a really tough time."

Those who are not able to attend the fundraiser can still make donations to the Eads family.

Donations can be made in person at local businesses such as The Emporium, Indulgence, and T & Company, or by visiting teamashtyn.org.

Schwartz says she and her husband Tory started the Team Ashtyn Foundation when they found themselves in a similar position as the Eads family.

"Our daughter Ashtyn was diagnosed at the age of three with Leukemia. Mid-though her treatment we turned around and decided we can make a difference. And so we kind of found our silver lining in all of this by turning around and making a difference for someone else."
