On June 4th 2009, Aiden was diagnosed with type one diabetes. His life and our lives were forever changed that day. Aiden will live with this disease for the rest of his life unless a cure is found. A cure would mean that Aiden would no longer have to think about every bite of food he puts in his mouth. He would no longer have to prick his fingers multiple times a day in order to know his blood sugar, and most importantly he wouldnt have to endure multiple injections a day just to keep himself alive and healthy. He would be able to be a "normal" carefree kid again.
