In loving memory of Miles

His nickname among his community is “Miles the Brave”, and when you watch Miles’ story, you’ll understand why. His perseverance, strength and leadership abilities are nothing less of incredible, not to mention inspiring. As he bravely faced cancer, he rallied thousands across our region to raise funds for the new Olsrud Family Women’s and Children’s Hospital at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center. Having traveled a lot of places for Miles’ treatment and clinical trial opportunities, the Isbell family is grateful for the doctors, nurses and donors who made treatment possible for Miles, closer to home.

Like many families, Miles, his parents and brother initially spent hours in the car or plane travelling to Portland and Seattle for his pediatric cancer treatment. This meant that they were separated from older brother, Carter, and missed days of school, activities and even holidays together. That was until they learned of Dr. Absalon and Dr. Plummer at Asante Rogue Regional. They made it possible for Miles to receive his treatments just couple of hours from home, where he spent each night with his family.

Asante Foundation joins so many in our community grieving the passing of Miles the Brave. This incredible young man inspired us all with his generosity and spirit. Thank you for considering a gift in his memory.
