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 7/26

Hello Everyone- Update from my sister below. If Kitty is unable I will try my hardest to keep everyone up to date. Please keep my entire family in your thoughts and prayers.

Dearest friends,

I write with a heavy heart...
We are at Children's. Aidan had his MRI today. It showed significant tumor spread both in his brain and spine (much worse than when he was initially diagnosed). It is hard to imagine that just 6 weeks ago, his MRI was clean.
We have had discussion with his oncologist who stated that treatment at this point will unlikely be curative, but possibly extend his life for a little while.
We are sad beyond does one even begin to say goodbye to their child?
I will update with more info as I am able.

    I cannot imagine your level of confusion and pain, I only have faith that each moment with Aidan grows more precious within the very fiber of your souls.

    I am simply devastated.

  2. Kitty, Ron, Aidan and family,

    I wanted to let you guys know that my family and I are praying like crazy. I wish I was there to give you guys a hug. I cannot stress enough how strong you all are and the amount of devotion and positivity you give everyday. Give Aidan a kiss and tell him it's from his GF :) You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

    Always, even in Minnesota,
    Mary Bonacorsi and Family
