Draiden Valencia

Draiden was diagnosed with T-Cell Leukemia on July 10th 2009. That day I took him into the ER because his face was swollen and the veins in his head and neck were popping out. Thats when our world turn a turn. He was flown to Denver with a mass in bis chest and there we were told he has Leukemia. We have only been in our fight for 4 months and it has been really hard on all of us. 

Draiden is a smart, kind, and outgoing 9 year old who, with the help of modern medicine, has his whole life ahead of him. He wants to join the military when he grows up. He isn't sure which branch but he has a few in mind. He loves animals and people. He shares special bonds with everyone he meets.
