This is sweet Aiden. And he and his family bravely embraced their journey to KEEP MOVING FORWARD. Friends and family have lovingly rallied around them with this message and created a fundraiser of bracelets to both lift the Hendersen family, remember Aiden, and raise funding to build a special space for him at Gwendolyn's Playground.

In August of last year our beautiful son, Aiden, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor, or ATRT. The treatment plan called for 6-7 months of intense chemotherapy. A friend, who happens to be a nurse in the ICU, gave him a small stuffed frog and explained that frogs are physically incapable of moving backward. This message to keep moving forward has become our mantra, and we have adopted Floyd the Frog as our mascot. 

Keep moving forward doesn’t mean there aren’t setbacks, or that things aren’t hard, or scary, or overwhelming. It just means that no matter where you are in your journey or how slow you have to move, your only job is to take the next step.

September is Childhood Cancer Month with the slogan to Go For Gold. The Henderson family are sharing this special gold "KEEP MOVING FORWARD" bracelet as a way to support Aiden's memory.
