Ashtyn Brown is a Riley radiologic technologist. She was also Riley kid.

Ashtyn faced cancer twice in her childhood. Her second battle nearly killed her.

She says she owes her life to the Riley medical team that managed to find a treatment to save her after she developed a fungal. The infection impacted all her major organs and kept her being able to get chemotherapy. Ashtyn says her doctor did not rest until he was able to come up with a plan that would allow Ashtyn to fight the cancer.

Ashtyn now sees all types of patients coming through the radiology department. She says she strives to give her best every day because she knows what it’s like to be that young child sitting in a hospital room facing a difficult journey.
