Aidan - BMW Dallas Marathon Patient Champion
Since 2007, the Patient Champion program has enlisted Scottish Rite Hospital patients to help encourage and cheer on runners in the BMW Dallas Marathon. This program is a way to highlight some of the wonderful kids the marathon generously supports each year. We’re excited to introduce you to Aidan!
Aidan, age 10, of Frisco, has been a patient at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for the past year, where he receives treatment for Perthes Disease in his right leg. The physicians in the Center for Excellence in Hip conduct groundbreaking research to determine the best treatment plan for each and every patient, including Aidan.
Aidan’s favorite part about coming to Scottish Rite Hospital is playing in the Child Life Playroom, where he can “escape” and play videogames with other kids, just like he does at home.
Outside of the hospital, Aidan enjoys spending time with his family and friends and loves to play sports. He plays four different sports, and his family of six all plays soccer. He is is eager to join them again back on the field!
Aidan’s doctors are experts in caring for children and someday he hopes to be an expert in caring for the community. He aspires to become a Police Officer and with his big heart and positive attitude, he is sure to succeed!
