My Story

This is Aaron or as many people call him AJ. Before this all began he was typical 6-year-old boy. Well I wouldn’t say typical, for those who know him there is nothing “typical” about AJ. He has always been a inquisitive child that questions everything and not just in the normal, “Mom, where do babies come from?” questions, but I will get into his amazing personality at a later time. He spent his days enjoying kindergarten, gymnastics, ice skating , pretending to be Spider-Man and jumping off of anything and everything. We always enjoyed weekend vacations, hours at parks, museums, city trips and most of all, summer time, and the beach. On Sunday, March 30th, 2014 we spent the day ice skating with his Aunt Amanda, doing flips outside and spent the rest of the day playing Spider-Man. Little did I know that within 24 hours, our world would take a complete 360. Now instead of him pretending I was his biggest “villain” and that his “Spider-Man powers” would save the day, his little body would actually be fighting the worst villain of all… CANCER!… to be exact Choroid Plexus Carcinoma, an extremely rare malignant brain tumor. Please visit his blog at 1ofaKindKid.wordpress.com and celebrate each moment and memory we are making as Aaron fights his “biggest villain” of all. 1OfaKindKid.WordPress.com
