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!!!!!

We're done

Well he hated the cath removal it was like 30 ,minutes of wincing to get the tape off. Then cut the sutures and pull this long cable out of his neck. 20 minutes of pressure and a big ole bandage and were done. They wanted to X-ray the thing - I said were fine and passed. More billing that was unneccesary. Since he has a chest port for the Chemo they wanted to make sure they didn't bump it....with the long piece of plastic that is weaved into the big artery....I was like "we will deal with problems w the port back in Denver" If the port got damaged these folks can't deal with it anyways.

Now it's time to navigate airports......ugh.
