Aiden's Story

*I want to first off Thank you for taking time to visit My Son Aiden's Page for the Liver Life Walk*

On May 1, 2009 at only 7 weeks old my son Aiden was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia, which is a form of Liver Disease.

Biliary Atresia is a progressive inflammatory process that begins very soon after birth. In the most common form, called extrahepatic biliary atresia, the delicate ducts outside the liver are affected first. White blood cells invade the ducts, which become damaged and may whither or completely disappear. Bile is trapped inside the liver and rapidly causes damage and scarring to the liver cells. Further scarring of the liver tissue may result in cirrhosis.

Aiden had the Kasai Procedure done to temporally correct this condition. During this procedure they had to remove his gallbladder and re-route his intestine to his liver, this allows the bile that is collected in his liver to drain properly. More often, despite asuccessful surgery, slow, progressive damage to the liver continues. When progressive cirrhosis occurs, it will eventually require liver transplantation. Despite having the Kasai, Aiden's was not successful. Aiden was put on the waiting Transplant list on October 28, 2009. On February 13, 2010 some one made a selfless decision to donate their beautiful child's organs and my son Aiden received the Gift of Life. As of now Aiden is doing remarkably well! Our family couldn't be more blessed!

When the walk approaches we will be celebrating Aiden's 3 1/2 year post-transplant, PLEASE Join Team Aiden in the best celebration possible, if you can not attend the walk please donate to team Aiden to help find a crue for this horrible disease!! I Hope to see you there!

Aiden is not alone with this disease there are many children who are diagnosed with this disease yearly. By helping out the Liver Fountation and walking at the Liver Life Walk you will not only help Aiden but many Children and Adults battling Liver disease. Please Join Aiden and his family and friends on September 21, 2013 in Blue Springs, MO at Gregory O Grounds Park.
