Ayden, 4 | B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Ayden is a 4 year old little ray of sunshine! He always has a smile on his face and is just one of the happiest little guys I know! He was diagnosed with B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on July 26, 2018, after a couple of months of trying to figure out what was going on with his little body. In May 2018 he fell and hurt his knee, we thought it was broken so we took him to an urgent care and they did X-rays and said he fractured his tibia. We then went to an orthopedic doctor and they reviewed the X-rays and checked him out and decided it was not a fracture, there was just some missing bone because his knee were not fully developed yet. We went home and over the next month Ayden was still limping and still in a lot of pain. We took him back to the orthopedic doctor after talking to our pediatrician and they did more X-rays and still determined there was no fracture before or then and there was nothing wrong with his leg and they sent us to physical therapy. We did PT for a couple of weeks but his pain throughout his day at school was worsening and he was tired a lot and things just did not see, right. We went back to the pediatrician again for more answers and she sent us to an ER to get blood work and more X-rays. That is when they discovered he could possibly have leukemia. We were admitted immediately and they began the testing to confirm his diagnosis. Ayden is the strongest, bravest, happiest boy I know! He is fighting cancer like a champ!
