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.

Dancing Through the Decades Hospice dinner dance

Dancing Through the Decades...A Benefit for Hope's Friends
On November 13, 2010, Ron and I were invited to honor Aidan and share his story with 400 guests at a benefit for Hope's Friends Pediatric Hospice.
The theme was 'Dancing Through the Decades' of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Guests were invited to dress in the popular styles of their favorite decade.
The event was held to support the Child Life Specialist Program and Camp Courage at Hospice and Palliative Care of Northeasten Illinois.

Pictured here are the nurses, along with Dr. Henry (center), who cared so passionately for our sweet Aidan. Their team came dressed as the Village People..."Biker Babe" Michelle (complete with moustache), "Chief" Sheila, and "Officer" Carrie.

We donated Aidan's wheelchair to this remarkable organization and also announced them as one of the beneficiaries of Aidan's Army.
