The cancer strikes back
In July 2014 things started to change.
Aidan was vomiting, unsteady on his feet and was starting to slur his words, just like at the beginning.
In August we were told the cancer had come back with a vengeance. It had become immune to the treatment, and surgery would do more harm than good.
We were in limbo again. After all the fighting our little Aidan had done – and the stress on the family – we were now told there was nothing more that could be done.
They told us Aidan had four to six weeks to live.
Aidan deteriorated so quickly. On the 26th August our little man passed away.
He was so brave and it was so hard to see our baby leave us. He was the life and soul of the family and touched our lives and so many other people’s lives.
I love you so much little man and I miss you like crazy.
I know, you being you, you’ll be looking after all those children who have been taken too early, and looking out for those who are fighting the fight.
