Dec 6th, Simi Valley, CA – At two years old, Ayden Denne was diagnosed with Philadelphia chromosome-positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (Ph+ALL). He completed three years of intense treatment and was starting to live like a normal five-year-old when Ayden’s parents received the terrible news that his cancer had returned to his brain and spinal fluid. A bone marrow transplant is needed urgently to save Ayden’s life. The Simi Valley Rotary Club, business leaders, community members, and supporters from all walks of life have been working tirelessly to spread the word that they need 18-40 year-olds to get tested to see if they’re a match for Ayden – they call themselves Team Ayden. Sadly, it’s extremely difficult to find a perfect match, making it imperative to have as many people as possible get tested right away!
