In 2013, after Ayden began experiencing seizures, doctors discovered a large mass tumor connected to his central nervous system as well as cluster tumors in the optic pathways of his eyes. Emergency brain surgery also revealed a cancerous tumor on his heart.

Ayden began chemotherapy at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, and after one and a half years of treatment and 17 surgeries, Ayden was deemed stable. Although his tumor left him blind, his family is grateful for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ funds that helped him receive the most advanced medical care possible, saving his life.
