He is a proud big brother to his 3 month sister Sophia. Always the helper, he lives to be outdoors digging holes, working in my daughter and son-in-laws little garden, making forts, playing sports, cops and robbers, and army man! He loves baseball and gettem-gettem (football), he likes to watch NASCAR with his Babay and J-pa…He loves dirt bikes and is all boy to his core! Did I mention that he is just four years old and has not even begun to lose his teeth yet?
He is the greatest thing I have witnessed in this life, his soul is old which touches everyone he has contact with…He is a joy and a blessing to watch grow up!
Our Aiden was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer on 6/20/2014, His lymph nodes have been going berserk and causing him increasing amounts of pain and restricting him from the movement most of us take for granted. We are still waiting for more definitive information to come from the procedures he has endured (lymph node removal, bone marrow draw, and spinal tap). Once those results are in we will know more about his strain and how to better attack it. Aiden should begin his chemo treatments by 6/23/2014.
Some of you might be following Aiden's story on Facebook, while others of you might be lucky enough to know him in real life. Our little guy and his family know that many of you would like to do something to help so with that in mind we have started this campaign. We are hoping to raise enough financial support so that they can focus on being with him 24/7 with no worries of how they will keep their lights on and fuel in the family vehicle. This is a very stressful time for Aiden and his family so it would be a real blessing if all of ushelp them forget about any financial stresses in this difficult situation. It would also be beneficial to his recovery if Aiden has activities to keep him happy and entertained while undergoing treatment (distraction therapy). Please help Aiden Olin Thomas Branch's fight to INFINITY AND BEYOND! It is almost always easier to give than to receive or ask for assistance, many times we as humans carry huge burdens by ourselves rather than reach out and show weakness…Humility can often a hard pill to swallow.I had a friend encourage us to reach out with this gofundme platform to help our grandson and his family in their time of need. Thank you for all of the well wished and support, we will continue to update his journey so you can continue to follow along.
