AIDEN’s Story

Tuesday, Feb. 20, Aiden came home from Day Care with a little fever. Mom noticed some swollen lymph nodes in Aiden's neck. She thought he may have tonsillitis. She made an appointment with his Doctor for the following day, Feb. 21. The Doctor took a CBC test and he said he thought his machine was broken so asked Gena to take Aiden over to the hospital to have the blood test run. The hospital re took the test. The hospital called Gena again before she even got home and asked them to come back. They needed to redo the CBC test again. Aiden's doctor called about 8 p.m. Feb. 21 and told them to take Aiden to Kosair hospital immediately. He thought Aiden had luekemia. Kosair did Aiden's CBC again. His # was so high (232,000) normal is 10-15,000. Around 4:00 a.m, it was confirmed (High Risk) Acute L. Leukemia. Read the journal for what follows next! One moment can change your life forever!

Latest Journal Update

Yes, AIDEN has kicked Cancer's butt AGAIN!

May 27, 2015, Aiden will be a two time cancer survivor just days before his 11th birthday.  Please forgive us for the lack of updates the last few months, but as the 'Ole" saying goes; NO news is Good News.    Aiden started his second cancer journey July 2012 and was suppose to be done in November of 2014...WELL,  here we are in May 2015, a few months longer than planned, but HE GOT THE JOB DONE!  Jason and I are beyond proud, and the words to be found to express the joy and thankfulness we have,  can't be found.   

As I write this post, and the celebration that we feel, it breaks my heart that two of the kiddo's that have been fighting their fight along with aiden, one of them will begin their 4th fight (yes, that's right fourth) and the other little guy, they are waiting on the confirmation and he will begin his 3rd fight.   Our hearts go out to these families and ALL the kids battling this horrible, rude, greedy, piece of crap of a disease.   

Thank you for following us, and always showing your love and support to our family, trust when I say, WE could NOT have endured this journey without them and ALL your many MANY prayers.  GOD IS GOOD!     

PS - Once again we will be celebrating, if you're in the area we would LOVE for you to come and be part of the celebration!

Although we have never met in person I feel like I know all of you. I have Aiden's picture by my bedside and have prayed for him every night. What an awesome young man he is. I enjoy wearing my "Aiden's Lego Legacy" jersey and telling people about his journey when they ask. I will definitely keep following him and hope that you will post many pictures about what is going on in your lives. Praise God.
