A Glenpool family is organizing a drive-by parade for a 5-year-old boy battling terminal cancer

GLENPOOL, Okla. — Aaron was diagnosed with brain cancer in March of this year. He went through chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and treatment for the past 10 months. His family says things were looking good, and they thought he had his last chemo treatment a few weeks ago. Sadly, doctors did a recent MRI and saw that the cancer had spread throughout his spine. They say the cancer is inoperable.

You can follow along the Aarons Journey Facebook page, where a recent post on there says, “Inoperable and incurable. These are the words we hate to see. Now, the focus for Aaron is quality of life. “They” don’t know how much time he has left but that’s the reason why he crossed our path.”

Aaron just turned five and his grandparents want to give him the best birthday incase it’s his last. They say right now he is struggling to walk and eat, and he can’t leave his home or the hospital. On Saturday, they are organizing a big drive-by Birthday parade. Line-up will start at Glenpool High School’s football parking lot at 2:00 p.m. Anyone is welcome to attend and bring a gift if they’d like! You can also just show up to ride along.

Aaron loves superheroes, Paw Patrol and Pokémon. His family says they’re also looking for donations since his mom hasn’t been able to work these past 10 months while talking care of him. They have a doctors appointment, treatment or therapy almost every day. There is a GoFundMe page if you’d like to help that way.
