   Aiden was only two years old when he fell into his babysitters pool in August of 2011. His brain was severely damaged due to the lack of oxygen from near drowning. The doctors did not think he would make it, and if he did he would not have normal function and be rendered unable to do anything on his own ever again. One doctor told Aidens mother that his soul had gone but his body was still here, and asked if she was prepared to do whatever necessary to care for him and since that day, she has.

   In the last two years since the incident Aiden has made huge strides in the way of progress. Aiden can now hold his own head up and makes consistant efforts to communicate by using a handful of words that he has learned. The doctors determined Aiden would also remain blind, however Aidens vision as progressively improved and recently discontinued use of his glasses. Through hard work and regular therapy Aiden is improving balance and function and sits upright on his own for several seconds at a time. He has suffered tonic-clonic (as well as two other types) siezures and, to the surprise of his neurologist, has defied odds by overcoming them on his own without any medicinal treatment.

  Through determination to help her son, Aidens mother found Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Treatments (HBOT) that are used to treat and heal brain injuries. The HBOT works by carrying oxygen through out the body, stimulating the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells which promote healing. Research shows the outcome of HBOT as 15 times greater than therapy alone. Aiden has completed his first round of treatments  and has shown a positive reaction to these treatments.

   Although these treatments prove to be effective they are not covered by insurance and are very expensive. Doctors estimate Aiden will need between 60-120 treatments total depending on rate of progress. The family is accepting donations to help pay for these treatments, 100% of the funds collected go towards Aidens treatment expenses.

   Thank you all for your hand in helping Aiden continue his fight and journey to recovery!
