HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) –
A young boy is fighting for his life after being detected with cancer when he was 13 months old.
Now, 3-year-old Ayden has actually stopped responding to treatments and has actually been put in hospice, but his mommy, Lindsey Licari, has not giving up hope on finding treatment for her boy.
“My fear terrifies him so I attempt not to sob, I try to remain positive and think about all the advantages that might occur and remind him of the important things that make him delighted, since that’s the only method you get through it,” Licari said.
Prior to Lindsey Licari might hear her son talk or watch him walk, she spoke with doctors who told her little Ayden had cancer.
“I do it alone I do not have his dad it’s simply me and Ayden so some moms lose their kid and go home to their other kids and their husband, I’ll go the home of an empty home, due to the fact that I’ll have nobody,” she stated.
Ayden has been battling the rare form of cancer for 2 years. There’s an enormous tumor in the plural lining of his lung. He’s gone through 3 various rounds of chemotherapy
“We tried ICE chemo which is the greatest chemo they got and we got a great deal of shrinkage, however then after the 2nd round we were supposed to do surgical treatment to obtain a little more shrinking and it backfired and double in size on us,” she said.
Ayden is now in house hospice. He cannot walk and sobs every night in pain.
Desperate for a way to conserve her boy, Lindsey is raising money to try to provide him a special treatment by a few of the very best doctors in Germany, Boston or Texas.
“Doing vehicle washes fundraisers, sticking out on the street like we did today because quiting is not an alternative for us we’re not going to give up and we are going to keep fighting for my child,” Licari said.
Ayden requires 24/7 care and Lindsey is hardly able to make ends satisfy. She says the support from our community to help fund her little boy’s treatment is giving Ayden a fighting chance.
A BARBEQUE fundraiser for Ayden is being held on Sept. 2 at 12 p.m. at Sundown Park. A balloon release ceremony will be held at 9 a.m.
Anybody can help Ayden with contributions on his GoFundMe account.
