Liberty Ashworth

Liberty Ashworth is a 15-year-old from Panora. She was diagnosed in Nov. 2020 with Stage IV Adenocarcinoma Colorectal Cancer that had metastasized to her liver. Just six short days later, she underwent surgery at Mayo in Rochester, MN. We returned home after being hospitalized for several days and started chemotherapy. CRC is very rare in children and it proved to be even more difficult because the only known treatments for this are specific to adults. The chemo treatments were very difficult for her and she spent more time hospitalized for complications than she actually got to be at home. One of the longest started on Christmas Eve and she remained hospitalized until Jan. 1, 2021.

During the time following the first surgery at Mayo, genetic testing was completed and we learned that Libbie has a genetic condition called Lynch Syndrome, which makes her more susceptible to various cancers. Typically, onset isn’t until late 30’s or later. Genetic counselors are still working to determine why her onset was so early in life. With this unique turn of events, Libbie became eligible for targeted immunotherapy treatment, which she started in January. This was a much easier treatment regimen but unfortunately the cancer has progressed through the chemotherapy…..
