My Story

As growing up, Jaedyn inspired lots of people by the activities he could do at the age of 2 years old. He was always at the ball park because the family would watch his older cousin play various type of sports. When his cousin's team won that 2008 LLWS, we would watch baseball over and over on television and at the park. He would and imitate the entire team. Comments were always made that he could be a good athlete one day because he was not afraid of many things. Then a month after his 3 year old birthday, he was diagnose with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (aka:ALL). It hit a lot of friends and relatives heart to see such an amazing healthy boy one day turn into a boy with a disease that call CANCER the next day. Jaedyn, still continues to watch the games on DVD, but now he tells us (grandma and papa)-"somebody is looking at me" or "why is somebody looking at me?". We now see him in different moods while going through different treatments. But he is still one tough kid because he fights to be strong and he is determined to do things that other children his age is doing. We thank our friends and relatives for the prayers that gives Jaedyn strength to fight this battle.
