Aden’s Story

It was Easter Sunday 2008 and Aden our youngest of five and only a month from his golden birthday didnt want to eat his favorite ham, more urgently he had a yellowish tint that developed around his eyes....On Saturday nite March 29th we discovered Aden - only 4 years old had Cancer.

Aden endured three years and three months of chemotherapy which ended in July 2011. He had a complete remission.

In October of 2013 Aden was complaining of headaches and backaches. A scan of his blood showed a reduced platlet count. Because of his history the clinic decided to do a bone marrow biopsy. On November 19th 2013 we discovered his cancer / acute lymphoblastic leukemia had returned isolated in his bone marrow.

Team Aden is led by his mom Lorelie along with dad Mike Sr. His sisters
Alexa, Allie and Alea and his brother Mike Jr. Along with his niece Audree Sky and her dad Zach (roni) and grandma Ethel in Illinois - uncle David Anthony in Illinois and Uncle Steve and Aunt Sue and cousins Kyle and Ryley. Please post your comments!!!!!

Latest Journal Update

CBC mixed results

Blood counts - mixed bag results.

Had CBC at Childrens today.

Hemo 15.1

Platlets 261k

Whites 1056

ANC 510

He's officially immune compromised with the 510 ANC, that's an indicator of what he can fight in terms of bugs and viruses with a low white blood cell count so Lori is restricting people in and out and he's not going anywhere for a moment. Normal healthy folk have a 2500 plus ANC, anything under 1000 is comprised anything under 500 is a severely compromised immune system. This is chemo induced and rarely happens with oral only chemo BUT it's been years and his system is weakened.

On a good note the platlets are stable which is a big concern with the leukemia. We're redoing the biopsy of the marrow first week of Nov.
