HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS: Nash To Return Wednesday From St. Jude


A Winfield child battling pediatric brain cancer will be back home this week.

Nash, 3, has been in Memphis at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and hasn’t been home since March. He’s had three brain surgeries so far, six rounds of chemo and six weeks of radiation, according to his parents.

In support of Nash, area fire and police departments are getting together to welcome Nash home Wednesday.

Nash, who is the step-son of Winfield firefighter Derrick Yoder, will be escorted by various entities along his ride home from Memphis. In Ark City, the fire department along with friends and supporters will set up at the Country Mart parking lot at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday with signs for Nash. In Winfield, the fire department will set up at 4:45 p.m. on 12th Street from Main Street as they ride into their home.

Nash will be home for a month and then go back to Memphis for another MRI.

Yoder and Kelly Allen, also of the Winfield Fire Department, visited the KSOK studios in August with more information on Nash and his treatment. Their interview from that visit can be listened to below:
