Meet Our Hero, Adyn

Mar 27, 2021 | Hero

HOMETOWN: KEARNEY, NE

DIAGNOSIS: ANAPLASTIC ASTROCYTOMA

DATE OF DIAGNOSIS: 2019

CURRENT STATUS: BECAME AN ANGEL IN 2020

Adyn Stevens grew up in Kearney, Nebraska and loved to play soccer and build LEGOs. In late 2019, Adyn was diagnosed with a Stage III Anaplastic Astrocytoma brain tumor. He bravely fought his tumor until October 10, 2020 when he passed away from the disease. Although his Make-A-Wish trip to Hawaii was unable to happen due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he was surprised by Good Samaritan Air Care in a Hawaiian decorated helicopter and got to enjoy a ride over his hometown. Adyn was a brave young man who taught us all how to be strong even in the most difficult circumstances. To read Adyn’s obituary, click here.
