No Pain...No Gain

Aaron’s condition continues to improve each day.   Having watched him practice and compete in multiple sports for the past dozen years…I haven't seen him persevere through such tearful workouts as he is with his current team of therapists.   As painful as each session is…Aaron knows that his path to full recovery has no shortcuts.

His overall body and various wounds continue to heal with his daily regiment of nutrition, therapy and rest.   His next surgery is scheduled for early next week.  Aaron's spirits and commitment to return to UCSB are remarkable.   The entire UCSD Medical staff are outstanding and are dedicated to help Aaron achieve his goals.

To date…all media/news teams have been very respectful of Aaron’s condition and are supportive in helping us address our committed interests:

1)  Raising awareness of the symptoms and early treatment nisseria (bacterial) meningitis

2)  Accelerating the approval and availability of the serogroup-B vaccination

3)  Raising appropriate resources for Aaron (and other victims) to fully recover from this devastating disease.
