This is for my friend Steph, and her oldest son Aiden. These are her three boys, similarly aged to mine, in a loving twist of wrestling limbs and undoubtedly the sound of giggles echoing in the memory of this picture. Her boys remind me so much of my own, but with one glaring difference… Aiden has been battling brain cancer since September 2016. It still feels shocking to think that, and always so desperately wrong. Surprisingly though, in the research I’ve done since my friend first told me about this terrible monster that had crept into their lives back when they blissfully believed this could never happen to them, I’ve discovered that the kind of brain cancer that attacked little Aiden (medulloblastoma) is in fact classified as a childhood cancer. What a horrible reality that childhood cancers, ones that occur most commonly in children, exist at all.
It breaks my heart to say, for those that have followed their story, that despite our best hopes after his harrowing year of aggressive treatment, his remission did not last as long as we all would have hoped and he has had to start back on chemo.
His mom has had to take a leave from work to be home with him while he continues to fight. She belongs with her children right now, and I hope that our community can help her stay home without the huge financial burden she’s feeling as a single mom.
Please support her in any way that you can during this difficult time and if you're able to donate, please do so, because every little bit that we can give will help lessen at least one of her many burdens right now, so she can focus on what really matters. 
Thank you!
