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.

Sandwich Fair 9/12/2010

Ron and I, along with Patty and Matt went to the Sandwich fair this past Sunday. Uncle Matt Matt has been telling Aidan about the Sandwich fair since he entered the world. Last year he even bought him his very own John Deere tractor. This year would have been Aidan's first visit, so we went for him...

We visited some of the 4-H animals, the roosters and the bunnies. We saw the freakishly big pumpkin. I think it weighed in at 438 pounds.
Of course we indulged in some fine fair food (Patty calls Sandwich Fair the glutton bowl. That's pretty accurate). If anyone from the neurosurg team at Children's is following you will remember "the bacon diet". How that made Aidan laugh! Well, hands down, my FAVORITE thing we sampled was deep fried bacon drizzled with chocolate. It was complete genius and I hope it made you smile buddy!

This year they had antique fire trucks. Interesting that they didn't have them at the fair in the past? Hmmm. Aidan must have let them know this would be an awesome addition...he loved fire trucks.

Uncle Matt-Matt and Ron stole a picture on one of the tractors. Matt tries to get one every year.

Lastly, we took a ride on the train that went around the fair...I'm sure that would have been Aidan's favorite part of the day. A boy and his trains...

We had a great time and I hope you did too, Aidan! I know you were with us, sweet boy.

Hello Everyone-
On behalf of my entire family I would like to say THANKS ...
Many of you have cried, listened, sent us cards, called, brought us food, hugged, reminisced or even sat quietly with us, and we appreciate each and every one of you.

Thank you for all the kind words, prayers, comments and positive thoughts, they all mean so much to us. I apologize to some of you who have attempted to comment but could not, I adjusted the settings so hopefully it is fixed.

I would also like to thank everyone who has donated money to Aidan's trust, every cent will go toward the research and treatment of childhood Medulloblastoma.

These last six weeks have been extremely rough and we're all taking every day as it comes. We appreciate all the support.

As I promised I will keep this blog going, Aidan was too special to me not to let the everyone know what an amazing little boy he was.

The last few days I have been taking walks through the park, it's been windy, Aidan liked to feel the wind on his face. I miss him terribly.

Lots of Love - Patty
