My Superhero’s Biggest Battle…


This is Aaron or as many people call him, AJ. Before this all began he was your typical 6-year-old boy. Well I wouldn’t say typical, for those who know him there is nothing “typical” about AJ. He has always been an inquisitive child that questions everything and not just in the normal, “Mom, where do babies come from?” questions, but I will get into his amazing personality at a later time. He spent his days enjoying kindergarten, gymnastics, ice skating, playing basketball, pretending to be Spider-Man and jumping off of anything and everything. We always enjoyed weekend vacations, hours at parks, museums, city trips and most of all, summer time, and the beach.

On Sunday, March 30th, 2014 we spent the day ice skating with his Aunt Amanda, doing flips outside and spent the rest of the day playing Spider-Man.  Little did I know that within 24 hours, our world would take a complete 360. Now instead of him pretending I was his biggest “villain” and that his “Spider-Man powers” would save the day, his little body would actually be fighting the worst villain of all… CANCER!… to be exact Choroid Plexus Carcinoma, an extremely rare malignant brain tumor. 

I am creating this blog for many reasons. The main one being to gain awareness to his rare form of cancer.  I don’t want anyone else to feel alone, like we do at this moment.  Aaron is loved by so many people, the second everyone found out that he was in the hospital the phone calls, texts, baskets and presents have been coming in a constant flow. We are all very thankful for all the support and encouraging words and prayers. Everyone has been making this nightmare a tad bit easier to deal wit

Please scroll through this blog and celebrate each moment and memory we are making as Aaron fights his “biggest villain” of all.  

FYI- many of the foundations that help families/children in situations like this, require the child to have a homepage so people from all over can follow his journey and cheer him on! So please feel free to share his story to help spread awareness to his disease. 




In the next few days I will also be posting links to help support all of the amazing foundations that have reached out to us in the last few weeks. One place in specific that has been such a great help is the Ronald McDonald House. That place  is truly a blessing for all children and families they serve. If anyone chooses to donate, we ask that you make a donation is Aaron’s name.  If you have any question’s regarding donation’s please just leave a comment and I will try to get back as soon as possible.
