Aiden was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) 6 years ago and is motivated to find a cure during his lifetime. He has participated in the annual JDRF Walk, was a delegate for Kids for a Cure Lobby Day 2018 and was a JDRF youth ambassador. Aiden has raised awareness for type 1 diabetes by speaking to classes in his school and speaking at the JDRF Gala dinner in the past. His hobbies include swimming, skateboarding, biking and video games and he won a Bronze medal at a swim competition! A cure for Aiden would mean being free from constant finger pokes and needles.
