My Story

AARON IS AN AMAZING BRAVE STRONG LITTLE BOY, WE ARE EXTREMELY PROUD OF HIM IN THE WAY HE HAS DEALT WITH HIS BATTLE IN FIGHTING THIS CANCER! THROUGH AARON'S FIGHT OF THIS HORRIBLE DISEASE HE HAS REMAINED IN REMISSION. PRESENTLY AARON IS FINISHED HIS TREATMENT, HOWEVER HE STILL GOES TO HERSHEY ONCE A MONTH FOR A CHECK- UP AND BLOOD WORK TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS GOOD. WE ARE TRULY THANKFUL AND HAPPY TO BE ABLE TO SEE HIM BE A NORMAL KID AGAIN. RUNNING, PLAYING SPORTS, HANGING WITH HIS FRIENDS, YOU KNOW THE NORMAL THINGS A 8 YEAR OLD BOY USUALLY DOES. THANK GOD FOR PENN STATE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL, THEY ARE LIKE A 2ND FAMILY TO US AND THEY REALLY DO A WONDERFUL JOB CARING FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY. THEY WERE AND CONTINUE TO BE A GREAT SUPPORT TO ALL FAMILIES. HIM BE A KID AGAIN RUNNING, PLAYING SPORTS, HANGING WITH HIS FRIENDS, GOING TO SCHOOL EVERYDAY. JUST THE NORMAL ROUTINE OF ANY 8 YEAR OLD BOY.
