My Story

Jaeden started having bad headaches in the middle of 2017. Originally thought to be migraines, a trip to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin’s ED showed different. A CT scan showed a large mass on his brain which turned out to be medulloblastoma, a somewhat rare form of brain cancer. The tumor was removed and Jaeden spent the next 3 weeks recovering in the hospital. He has since completed 6 weeks of radiation and is currently going through chemo therapy. The prognosis is good and if everything stays on track he should be done with his chemo therapy later this year! Jaeden has been strong throughout his journey so far, and we know he will continue to be strong. There have been only a few hiccups along the way. The most challenging is getting him to keep weight on. To help with this, he had to have an NG tube put in this week. Jaeden stayed strong while getting it, and acts like it’s not even there. With his demeanor, you wouldn’t even think he’s going through what he is. He has always been our little upbeat jokester and that hasn’t changed a bit. He’s such a strong and positive little boy. Something that helps him with this is the tremendous amount of support that has been showed for him. The love and support that is shown for him (and his family) helps his journey immensely. Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure.
