“It was a day for our whole family to be involved. Aiden felt special at that moment in time, making him forget about his medical issues. It’s something that he’ll remember forever.”
Aiden has gone through many challenges with his life-threatening illness… it’s been a stressful adjustment for him. When Kids Wish Network found out that Aiden loves the New England Patriots, they went extra yards to score a touchdown for him. Kids Wish Network purchased tickets for Aiden’s entire family to see them play. And there would be more surprises.
On game day, Aiden’s wish kicked off at Gillette Stadium for a fan favorite VIP Patriot experience. His family was warmly welcomed, enjoyed an extravagant buffet breakfast, and Aiden was given a personalized gift package brimming with exclusive Patriots merchandise. He was especially excited to receive a Tom Brady signed jersey. Being a VIP had special perks. Aiden and his family were invited on the field before the game. “I got to meet Robert Kraft and have our picture taken,” said Aiden. He also attended a Meet and Greet and met former Patriots linebacker Steve King among other alumni, and watched the Patriots warm up on the field before the game.
“Aiden’s wish has definitely ignited his passion to play football himself,” said his mom Desiree.
For Aiden’s wish, they also enjoyed a movie and dining experience at Showcase Cinemas – Studio 3, watching the newly released LEGO Ninjago.
“The wish gave Aiden something to look forward to and something special to remember,” said his mom. “It was a day for our whole family to be involved. Aiden felt special at that moment in time, making him forget about his medical issues. It’s something that he’ll remember forever.”
Kids Wish Network would like to thank the following sponsors for making Aiden’s dreams become a reality:
- The New England Patriots for their hospitality and extraordinary gifts
- Showcase Cinemas – Studio 3
