EDIT: From the Williams family, from my sister and from myself, I want to thank everyone who has expressed concern and/or lent support to Aidan during this time. Your words of encouragement, your prayers and your donations are helping more than words can say...especially now.

Aidan passed away on October 15, 2007 at 11:17pm. His life was cruelly short, and there is no sense to be made of his death...but even during his brief stay with us he touched lives: across the country, across the continent, even across the world. Never will he be forgotten.

The Williamses are understandably shattered right now, unable to fully cope with what has happened. Over the course of Aidan's battle with MIO, they have moved cross-country, accrued thousands of dollars in debt and been forced to deal with a tragedy that no one should ever have to endure. Please, if you have planned to give to them in order to help with their little one, do not decide against it because Aidan isn't with us any more. They still need your help -- now more than ever.

Godspeed, little one.

This is basically a standing cry for help. The Williamses are dear friends of my sister, Charlie.  When I heard of Aidan's situation, I vowed to help in any way I could.

Please Help Aidan!!

Valery and Corey Williams were blessed with their first child, a beautiful baby boy, Aidan Randall Williams, on March 10, 2007. They currently reside in Monroe, Louisiana.

In July 2007, Aidan was diagnosed with a rare, fatal genetic disorder called malignant infantile osteopetrosis, in which an enzyme in his bone marrow does not function. The only possible cure for this disease is a bone marrow transplant. However, the cost of the procedure is more than double what insurance will cover. The insurance also will not cover any medications or prescription costs. In addition, the family must move to Minnesota for several months while Aidan is being treated.

We are looking to you for any assistance you can give to help with these overwhelming expenses. Anything you can donate is immensely appreciated. Please help us save their little miracle—he needs you!

Oh honey, I don't even think I knew you did this. You are so wonderful, loving and generous.

No matter what, I DO love you very much. You are my brother, and my friend. I'm sorry I am not as much a part of your life as we'd both like me to be. Perhaps one day, in the not-so-distant future, things will change.
