Amazing Aiden

Aiden was born at 12:13 on 17th June 2014. He suffered a Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) injury and was transferred to the Rosie Hospital at Addenbrookes in Cambridge for cooling (therapeutic hypothermia) and care in their ICU. We will not know how Aiden is going to do for some time, but he is a fighter and his parents and family members love him very very much.

Aiden is now 1 year old and the challenges he is going to face are starting to become more apparent.  Currently Aiden is diagnosed with low trunk tone and high tone in his arms, this means he currently cannot sit unaided, cannot crawl or walk.  

Aiden spends the majority of his time doing physiotherapy to help strengthen his muscles; physiotherapy is done through play and correct postural positioning.  To aid Aiden he uses a special chair for sitting and eating but he needs more equipment to enable him to explore his surroundings and play with toys as any child should be able to.

We currently would like to raise money to purchase Aiden more equipment, such as a Squiggles Early Activity System and a Squiggles Early Seating System, along with anything else which will aid his posture when we are out and about. 

Aiden has come a long way since his birth and he continues to show us his determination and strength to succeed but to do this he needs our help.  If you are able and willing any donation would go directly to Aiden to help him achieve new skills and live a full life.

Thanks for taking the time to visit Aiden's page. Donating through Go Fund Me is simple, fast and totally secure.
