Last June, Zachary Rader left his family in Bennington, Nebraska to fight overseas. Now, his family needs him now more than ever, especially his daughter, Ava.Zachary’s wife, Morgan, says their 5-year-old daughter was recently diagnosed with a form of kidney cancer. “We were told that it’s a 99 % chance of her having Wilms tumor,” Morgan said. “When they removed it on Wednesday, they confirmed that it is Wilms tumor.”Now Ava faces at least six months of radiation and several months of treatment ahead of her. “I just always thought it can’t happen to me,” said Morgan. “So it didn’t seem real. It’s just starting to finally set in.”Right now, Morgan is seven months pregnant, and is still handling all of Ava’s medical needs while Zachary is still deployed. Morgan also told KETV that her pregnancy prevents her from being in the room with Ava during radiation treatment.“I want to be there for her during this. I can’t imagine not being there for her, especially with her autism,” said Morgan. “She’s more comfortable with me than anybody else.”Morgan will depend on the help of other family members and friends, while she and Zachary both pray that he can get home soon. “I sent out a Red Cross message on Monday. I’ve had to send two now,” said Morgan. “He should be on a flight soon back home.”Morgan says her husband was just approved to be relieved of his duties Monday, but it’s unclear when he’ll officially be approved to come back to the U.S. The family has a GoFundMe account set up to assist with Ava’s medical expenses.

OMAHA, Neb. —

Last June, Zachary Rader left his family in Bennington, Nebraska to fight overseas. Now, his family needs him now more than ever, especially his daughter, Ava.

Zachary’s wife, Morgan, says their 5-year-old daughter was recently diagnosed with a form of kidney cancer.

“We were told that it’s a 99 % chance of her having Wilms tumor,” Morgan said. “When they removed it on Wednesday, they confirmed that it is Wilms tumor.”

Now Ava faces at least six months of radiation and several months of treatment ahead of her.

“I just always thought it can’t happen to me,” said Morgan. “So it didn’t seem real. It’s just starting to finally set in.”

Right now, Morgan is seven months pregnant, and is still handling all of Ava’s medical needs while Zachary is still deployed. Morgan also told KETV that her pregnancy prevents her from being in the room with Ava during radiation treatment.

“I want to be there for her during this. I can’t imagine not being there for her, especially with her autism,” said Morgan. “She’s more comfortable with me than anybody else.”

Morgan will depend on the help of other family members and friends, while she and Zachary both pray that he can get home soon.

“I sent out a Red Cross message on Monday. I’ve had to send two now,” said Morgan. “He should be on a flight soon back home.”

Morgan says her husband was just approved to be relieved of his duties Monday, but it’s unclear when he’ll officially be approved to come back to the U.S.
