My Story

Thank you for supporting Ayden and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Ayden was recently diagnosed with a germinoma, an extremely rare but treatable form of brain cancer. He is now going through chemo, but he has remained incredibly strong and positive throughout the whole process. He is the toughest, kindest, funniest kid I know, and he has truly become an inspiration to our whole family and everyone who knows him. The tumor caused him to go through early puberty at 7. Little did it know, this also made him even stronger and is helping him to kick its butt!
