This World Leukemia Day, we are honoring Aiden and those like Aiden who are affected by blood cancer. – The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

In a post by The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, on LinkedIn:

“‘From a very young age, we considered Aiden to be our gifted child. He has a free spirit and loves to connect with the world and others in it.

In 2016, at the age of two, Aiden was diagnosed with leukemia and given three days to live. What the doctors didn’t filter in is his resilience. His white blood cell count was over 750,000 when he was admitted. Immediately, the doctors had to start chemotherapy and dialysis (filtering out his white blood cells to normal levels) and stabilize Aiden.

After a rough month of treatment, Aiden went from ‘three days to live’ to the ‘miracle baby’ on the third floor, to the survivor. With every beat, Aiden was always on his feet dancing during and after treatment, he continued to dance and thrive in the performance arts.

Now in the third grade, Aiden tells his story through dance about how he survived blood cancer. With every eight counts, Aiden will continue to spread his light to everyone around him.’

This World Leukemia Day, we are honoring Aiden and those like Aiden who are affected by blood cancer. Kids are different and need to be treated differently. We are daring to change the paradigm of treatment and care of pediatric blood cancers. Our dream is to help as many children as possible thrive and dream big.
