Tyson Asher, a member of the McCracken County boy’s soccer team, was not able to play his senior season after receiving a kidney disease diagnosis of IgA nephropathy (nuh-FROP-uh-thee), also known as Berger’s Disease, last February. Asher received a kidney from his mother, Jenny Asher, on October 9th at Norton Children’s Hospital in Louisville.
During the boy’s regional tournament at Marshall County, Caleb King, Marshall County Soccer Booster President and Lady Marshals play-by-play announcer for WCCK 95.7, presented $230 to McCracken County Soccer Booster President Scott Kirkpatrick and Athletic Director Chris Garrett. Game donation buckets received $130 and the Marshall County Soccer Boosters donated $100 for a total of $230. King said although they didn’t raise what they had hoped to, every little bit helps the family with expenses.
