When Aiden was just four years old, he began to experience bruising and pain in his legs - nothing too alarming according to his parents. But when his father tickled his son’s knees during some play time, Aiden crumpled to the ground. He was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and since his diagnosis, Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital has been his home away from home.

Lily and Liam were so anxious to begin life that they arrived 16 weeks early, weighing just over one pound each. They faced a host of medical problems including a brain hemorrhage for Lily and a bowel perforation for Liam. Their mom, Audrey, described the first few months in the NICU saying “It was the toughest thing I’ve ever been through.”
