February 23rd, 2016 Aiden (3 years old) had an MRI where doctors found an Adult sized tumor in his right Thalamus. We later found out that his tumor was a Diffused Astrocytoma Glioma Grade 2 with the ROS1 mutation that was considered to be cancer. The location of tumor was considered inoperable but eventually the doctors had to do a partial removal. They got 55% removed. The doctors were unsure if he would make it through surgery but he came out better then he had been in a long time. Through this brain cancer journey Aiden has had to learn how to walk again 2 different times with the use of walkers and wheel chairs. He has also had to learn how to eat again. Aiden struggles daily with physical activities including walking, running, stairs, and fine motor tasks of the left side. Through this journey Aiden has had more MRIs, doctors appointments, surgeries then can be counted. He tried 3 different chemo treatments with being given 146 chemo rounds. He has now made it 1 year from his last chemo with celebrating 3 years of fighting brain cancer coming up in February 2019. He is doing well in school and is a thriving 6 year old little boy!
