Ron and Kathleen Manning established the foundation in 2010 after losing their son, Aidan. Aidan went to heaven on July 30, 2010 as the result of Medulloblastoma, a malignant brain tumor, diagnosed in December 2009. He was only 3 years old. Aidan had touched and inspired so many during his short life and we promise that he will continue to have an impact on this world.
We want to turn our experience into hope for other children with brain tumors. In Aidan’s memory, we are dedicated to raising money to support research and advance treatments that may one day lead to a cure.
Aidan truly had an army supporting him since his diagnosis in December of 2009. His army began simply with his parents, his special aunt Patty, family members, a multitude of friends, and his caregivers. Aidan’s Army continues to grow strong today because people that have never even met Aidan have been moved by his story and wish to help. Aidan has touched many hearts. Become part of Aidan’s Army…help us increase awareness and raise funds to learn more about medulloblastoma.
