With humble hearts, the STEPScenla family is honored to accept donations in memory of Aiden Hilie Taunton in continuing efforts to make a difference in the lives of other precious children just like Aiden who are battling terminal and life threatening illnesses in strife to one day ensure pediatric survival.
Aiden has touched us all through her courageous fight against the monster we all have come to know as DIPG. She has shown and taught us all so many things and her work here is now done. We ask that you all please keep Aiden's family in your prayers but also that you join us in becoming Aiden's voice in the fight against DIPG!!! What an amazing testimony she has left all of us to share with others in her name!! I pray that you will tell the world about Aiden, her battle and journey with DIPG, and the great impact that she has had on the hearts of so many people in such a small amount of time!
"Aiden Hilie Taunton is free from the failing body that kept her in this world, she is now home in heaven. On Sunday June 4th around 11 PM Jesus took her beautiful brave soul with him. Aiden had such a desire for life and that continued until the end. While we are shattered we are also thankful she is playing chase again, playing hide and seek again, she is using that beautiful voice to sing so clearly to Jesus, and she was greeted by so many angels...she's free from the troubles of this world. Aiden gave us so many gifts in her 5 years and these gifts we will spend the rest of our lives teaching others about.
Thank you all so much for the love that has been shown to us throughout Aiden's journey. I hope each of you carry her with you all the days of your lives." (The words of Megan Paul Taunton, Aiden's mother.)
