Update on AIDAN and what 1 woman is doing to help raise money for the doctor bills!!!

  Hey there and welcome back. I apologize again for not blogging much lately. I have had computer issues as well as MOJO issues. I DO have something VERY important to share with you.

 Here is an update on Aidan from his mommy... 

written by Jessica Harris
"Aidan will be starting a new phase of treatment on July 25th as long as his counts have recovered by then! This phase is called Delayed Intensification and it should last about 22 days as long as he has no illnesses arise. So we are praying for no sickness! After this phase is complete and his counts recover again he should go into MAINTENANCE!!!!! We have been praying for this for so long! He will be in the maintenance phase for 2 and a half years but during maintenance our lives should become somewhat normal again!!! He should get to go back to school and should only have to go in for chemo once a month!!! Thanks everyone for your continued prayers and please keep them coming! We are praying that we can stay on track!"

Well, GREAT news right? Good news always puts a smile on my face. With good news, comes the bad.... the doctor bills are still piling up. Check out what Kim Smith is doing to help raise some money. 

"A message from Kim Smith

On September 17, 2011, I will be running the Air Force Half Marathon in support of Aidan Harris and his family. He is an adorable little four year old (with a smile that can melt any heart) who is fighting a hard battle and he needs our help!
Aidan was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on February 7, 2011. 
After testing, it was discovered that his white blood cell count was over 700,000 and his Leukemia levels were at 99%. Aidan’s treatment started the day after his diagnosis and he will continue chemotherapy treatments over the next 3 years.
Aidan and his parents, Jessica and Jeremy live in my hometown of Leitchfield, Kentucky. When I first read about his diagnosis and his long road ahead, I knew that I needed to do something to help them. I have been running for a couple of years now and have decided to put it to good use. I may not be fast, but I can get from Start to Finish. I will run the 13.1 miles in honor of Aidan and do it proudly!
Here is what I need you to do…I am sending out a plea to all of my friends, family, your friends and family, neighbors, co-workers, anyone who reads this to please sponsor my RUN FOR AIDAN. Any amount is greatly appreciated! All donations will go directly to the Harris family to help with medical expenses.
Together we can help Aidan in this fight to WIN!
Thank you and God Bless,
Kim Smith"

I really needed to hear some good news about a child. I'm so happy that things are looking better for Aidan. I will definitely pray that no illnesses come his way. May God watch over this beautiful little angel each and every day.
