Aiden's Light was started in honor of our daughter, Aiden Hilie Taunton, who was diagnosed with DIPG on October 5, 2015 at the age of 3 and passed away on June 4, 2017 at the age of 5. Our family was supported first hand through do-nations, and we were blessed to seek treatment that helped both extend Aiden's life and give her the best quality of life. This would not have been possible without our gracious Heavenly Father and the many people who donated to us.
Throughout this journey our faith in Jesus Christ grew stronger and we witnessed how a little girl's love for Jesus and her ability to live a joyful life touched hearts all over the world from our small town of Monterey, LA. We experience so much hope, love, and gratitude during our daughter's 20 month battle that it has become part of our mission to spread that hope and love to other families whose child is battling the monster DIPG or any other form of pediatric cancer.
Aiden's Light is a 501(c)(3) foundation. Our EIN is 82-3329069. 100% of our profits go to our mission. For more information on where your money goes, please click here. Cancer can be a very dark place in our lives, but with Aiden's Light we plan to change that through hope in Christ by sharing Aiden's testimony and our journey through cancer.
