Aidan is a 7 year old autistic boy who has had 19 surgeries and medical procedures to date. Aidan has a damaged Vagus nerve from a previous surgery that requires he takes medication three times daily just so he can swallow. He also was diagnosed with a prolonged QT, which is a heart condition and most recently possible hip dysplasia that could require months of surgery, traction and rehabilitation therapy. 

We currently live 6 hours away and financially it is difficult to get him there when he needs to go. Children's Hospital of Philadelphia saved his life in 2009, and continues to give him great care, so we have decided to relocate our family to Pennsylvania so he can get the care he needs when he needs it. 

Aidan's father can get a job transfer, but his job is just over an hour away from Philadelphia, so the family is looking at starting over with new housing, a job and a new school for Aidan because his medical needs have become too extensive to be so far from a Children's Hospital. 

Thank you to anyone that helps the family get Aidan to Philadelphia for medical care to give him a chance at a healthier life.
