ARIC

ARIC

MEET ARIC Two-year-old Aric is a happy, giggly toddler who loves watching the movies Minions and Max and Ruby on repeat when he’s in the hospital. On days when he’s feeling a bit better, he’ll run down the hospital halls while his parents chase him with the IV cart. At just 20 months old Aric was diagnosed with brain cancer and has already experienced three invasive surgeries (one which lasted more than 8 hours) and chemotherapy. He’s about to start the final phase of treatment if his brain tumor is gone. This involves an extremely high dose of chemotherapy followed up with a procedure which uses his own stem cells. However, if the tumor is still there he’ll have to endure more intensive chemotherapy, possibly another surgery, and undergo stem cell rescue… Diagnosed with embryonal tumor with multilayered rosettes, C19MC altered, Aric’s brain tumor is very rare, and scientists have just now created the technology to detect this particular type of cancer.

My Story

16 Nov 2019

This June 2020, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.
