Sweet Aiden was involved in a horrible boating accident the evening of May 5th. This traumatic, life changing event left 3 year old Aiden needing some heroes.
Son of a firefighter Aiden and his family have emotional support, however medical expenses are just the beginning of what we want to step up to bless this family with.

More information to come as the family is ready to share, but for now Aiden is in critical condition and needs all the heroes he can get!

Please share the word to help this firefighter &  his family during this time. Aiden's dad risks his life daily as a firefighter,  his mother spends her days helping others as a nurse and it's our turn to help them.

Here's an update from the Lewisville Leader sharing all the amazing support that was received over the KTA weekend by both local & nationwide firefighters and their communities.

Thank you all for your continued support and prayers - whether you are a friend, family member, brother in the fire service or you just came across Aiden's story and wanted to help.
We are close to meeting our goal thanks to your support. Let's continue spreading the word- these funds will merely touch the medical expenses Aiden will have and this is just the beginning.

We can do this!

Thank you all for your continued support in a variety of ways.
There are multiple fundraisers & support systems that have been started and are happening behind the scenes if you have been unable to - definitely take a moment to check them out. Links are below.

The process little Aiden has made in the past week has been not only hopeful but shows the strength & fight he has. With hurdles still ahead we are planning on support for the long run not just immediately.

Today Aiden will undergo yet another surgery, but the great news is that Aiden is now awake and although still in critical condition he has made incredible progress.
Austin {Aiden's Dad} shared with us today that although Aiden has lost a portion of his leg and the future is unknown the outlook has improved from his initial condition. Aiden also suffered severe internal damage but thanks to the highly skilled surgeons & care team & all the prayers he is currently in the best condition possible for being such a new injury.
He is still considered in critical care and has a long road ahead, however these huge steps are big ones and we pray that his condition just continues to improve.


A carry the load team was created in Aiden's honor if you would like to participate even just a portion of the event please sign up, sponsors are also welcome.

We had the pleasure of meeting your sweet little Aiden randomly the other night at Primo's. He made such an impact on us all in such a short amount of time. My two year old and 11 year old just thought he was the coolest! There is no doubt that Aiden has an incredible future ahead as we have never seen such strength, resilience and joy in a child. We are lucky to have met him. :)
