An online effort to help raise $10,000.
Earlier in July eight year old Aiden suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns when his shirt caught on fire. Aiden attends J.B. Fisher Elementary.
As you’d expect the medical bills for this injury are substantial so the family is reaching out with a GoFundMe page.
From the GoFundMe page:
I never thought my son would end up on the unit his aunt works on. She is a PICU nurse…
On July 24th, Aiden had an accident where his t-shirt caught on fire and he suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns on his chest, stomach, arms and back. He is only 8 years old.
Aiden underwent surgery immediatley after the accident and will undergo additional surgeries for skin grafts. He will spend a minimum of 2 more weeks in the hospital. Despite such severe burns Aiden still manages to smile and tries to give hugs to everyone who enters his room.
All of Aiden’s family and friends want Aiden to be able to return to being the active, constantly in motion, happy child that he is. We are asking for your help. All money donated will be used to pay for medical bills, therapy after discharge and general expenses related to his care and recovery.
With the help of your donation, no matter how big or small you can help Aiden recover and get back bothering his big brothers and sister.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
