Aydan was diagnosed with Torticollis (wry neck syndrome) at two-months-old. So for the majority of his life we have been going to weekly, sometimes bi-weekly physical therapy appointments. We are blessed to have found an amazing PT after some trial and error and when I really sit down and think about it, we are blessed in many ways when it comes to Aydan's condition. We are blessed that we do not live at a hospital and watch our baby go through countless tests and painful procedures, all in hopes that one day a cure will be found.
I have such admiration for the children and families of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and of course an incredible amount of admiration for the hospital in general. With Aydan's birthday lurking around the corner (YIKES!), I felt like it was a good opportunity to start out on a generous foot. Of course I would love for Aydan to get a bunch of great new toys on his birthday, but I also have the thought of those families and their incredibly strong children in the back of my mind. We have suggested that friends and family make a donation, in Aydan's name, to St. Jude. Cancer is such a horrible disease and I hope that in some way, whatever minuscule amount Aydan's Birthday raises, that it helps make a difference for someone, somewhere.
