Tulsa elementary school student gets special sendoff ahead of cancer treatment

TULSA, Okla. – A Tulsa elementary school student was fired Friday as he was on his way to St. Jude Children’s Hospital for cancer treatment.

Doctors recently diagnosed Asher Rowland, a student at Eliot Elementary School, with brain cancer.

In support of his upcoming journey to start chemotherapy in Memphis, classmates, school staff and first responders came out Friday afternoon to wave Asher off.

Students made signs and lined up to show their support for the boy, and he even got a hug from the school mascot.

Friends of the family have created a GoFundMe account to help them with the cost of the treatment.
