Aidan was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, a malignant brain tumor, on December 19, 2009 after a very brief illness. He endured multiple surgeries and five rounds of high dose chemotherapy.
Our sweet, very brave boy lost his battle and went to heaven on July 30, 2010. He was 3 years old.
Please follow Aidans journey through the blog entries below.
We will contine to share stories, post pictures and make memories in his honor. Aidan will forever be remembered.

Aidan Update 7/01

Hello dear friends,

I write with very good news...
Aidan has been home for 17 consecutive days. That is HUGE for him! The last time we could say that was in December prior to his diagnosis.

He had his CT scan yesterday to evaluate the status of the fungal infection in his lung. It looks evidence of fungus. It's truly amazing as fungal infections typically take months of treatment before seeing good response. God is good...He is watching over this sweet boy. Thankfully, that means Aidan will not require any surgery.

The plan now is to do oral chemo at home beginning today for 5 days. Once he recovers from that (approximately a month from now), he will probably be ready to move to stem cell transplant.

We are so very thankful to be able to have him home and provide him some "normalcy".
We are also thankful to have all of you as friends. You have all been such great support for us. We truly appreciate all of your prayers and kindnesses.

We wish each of you a happy and safe holiday weekend.
