Today, I lost my kid. In this world, there was not one doctor, a single person that could use my kid any choices at all. And he aspirated and stopped breathing. And I attempted to do CPR and bring Ayden back. However I wasn’t able to. And they attempted once again, the hospital six times. As well as when I saw lines directly, I still knew God might still assist him. But Ayden’s body couldn’t take any longer. So today, I lost Ayden since we live in a world that does not prepare for kid cancer. And I am broken in numerous methods. But they messed with the incorrect mommy and the wrong kid. Childhood cancer will never be the very same now after Ayden. And I will never ever stop. I will never ever stop, up until you men stop letting these kids die. Because my boy fought to live. He battled his entire life. He fought his whole life to live. And you filled him with poison up until his organs could not take it any longer and his body fell apart. So you believe they took my boy and it’s not going to alter something about cancer? Then you’re wrong. Since that little young boy was my whole life. He was my whole life. And I had to watch my boy diminish away in front of my face and there was nothing I might do about it. There was absolutely nothing I might do about it no matter how much help I could get my son. No matter who I called, there was absolutely nothing I could do. However I understood if this illness was going to take Ayden, everybody worldwide would know who my son is. Everyone will know Ayden Setoshi Brown. He was three years of ages. He could inform you every planet in the solar system. He was phenomenally smart and he enjoyed me so much and I enjoyed him too. He didn’t deserve to pass away. These kids do not should have to pass away. And if I can do anything in my power, I will make certain that no mom feels how I feel today and need to put their kid in a bag.

Sunday’s memorial service will be held at MEET Las Vegas, situated at 233 S. Fourth Street, near the downtown area.

The Celebration of Life occasion will be open to the general public and start at 12 p.m. Ayden’s mom stated all are welcome to say their goodbyes to her sweet boy.
