Aidan’s Story

Welcome to Aidan's page. We created his page when Aidan was diagnosed Stage IV Neuroblastoma in July 2009, at the age of 6. He was diagnosed the day after his littlest sister Madison was born and it was a very difficult time for Aidan and our family. 4 1/2 years later we are all wiser, stronger and more appreciative of everything in life.


Aidan was treated with 7 rounds (7 months) of front line high dose chemo, 14 days of radiation, a 9 1/2 hour operation, 2 years of extremely painful immunotherapy and 2 years of a drug called DFMO as a preventative trial. Aidan is off treatment officially as of August 2014. Aidan has be in remission since January 2010 and we are so, so blessed by his health and how amazing he looks and feels.  Despite all of the insane treatments; Aidan has remained positive and cool and always happy! Aidan has a 90 lb. 2 1/2 year old yellow lab named Blake that is his buddy.


Aidan is an awesome son, brother, grandson, friend, student, patient and so, so much more. He is a rock star and we love him more than words. 


If you would please sign Aidan's guest book; we would really appreciate it.  We truly treasure all of the support!


We want to spread the knowledge and truth about how cancer is stealing the lives of innocent children and the funding is lacking for new and better treatments and to stop cancer. For the children that survive cancer; sadly most end up with terrible life long health issues. Check out this website, please!

Happy Holidays-Blessed

We haven't updated in a long while. Aidan is doing so great and we are so blessed every single moment of every single day.

We went back for scans in New York at the end of November and things went so well. Aidan's doctors informed us that Aidan doesn't have to come back for scans until July 2014. I almost fell over while walking hand in hand with Aidan down the streets of Manhattan when this amazing news came in. This is Aidan's first break from scans since July 2009. Happy DAYS!

The trip back to New York was with Parker Shaw (age 7) and his dad Dave. Parker is from San Diego also and he was diagnosed at 6 years old just like Aidan. The universe brought our families together early in Parker's journey and it meant so much to us to be there with them on the trip. Aidan and Parker were not only instance buddies, but acted like brothers. Parker is back in New York now with his parents and had his first round of 3f8. Please prayer for Parker Shaw to be NED and the Shaw family.

Thank you for continued prayers for Aidan to be NED for life and for his health and happiness.

Happy Holiday and Blessings-
