Meet Our Hero, Aiden

Dec 27, 2021 | Hero

HOMETOWN: OMAHA, NE

DIAGNOSIS: MEDULLOBLASTOMA

DATE OF DIAGNOSIS: 2018

CURRENT STATUS: STABLE

Aiden Melia was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, medulloblastoma, in 2018. After multiple surgeries, proton beam radiation, chemotherapy, and rehabilitation, Aiden is doing well today. While his hearing has been affected and his freedom to make friends and be near other children was delayed due to his weakened immune system, he is making up for lost time now. He loves being with his brother and with his friends and is now in second grade.
