Best wishes for the treatment - Sound's like it was caught pretty early, and you're young/strong so you're recovery should be pretty quick.


If you havn't already, get Lance Armstrongs Book(s) and read them.

Post by: aidan @ projectleeds on Apr 23, 2005, 15:51
cheers fot all the concern, i really appreciate it.

i just got home, im at home til tuesday (although i have to sleep at my local hospital - morphine and all!) then im off to birmingham for a byopsy, then i can come home next saturday for afew weeks whilst its analysed.

once they know what the score is, itll be time for treatment, unfortunately, they cant just cut it out as its on my pelvis (bone cancer) and it crushes my nerves for my legs etc.; cos of this, thery cant risk removing it when its near all my nerves.

so itll be therapy and probable baldness etc.  :P

ill be ok, im in high spirits. apparently its most common in 15 year old boys (thatd be me!) , but it still is quite a rare thing.
 haha, ill keep you lot updated  :-*

No operation, it's VERY close to his nerves so they can't do anything. Keemo (sp?) is the only way, he's gonna lose all his hair lol

Aidan's being brave as hel about it all, he's constantly on a happy, and it takes a lot when you know something bad is up with you. I, for one, know for a fact i'd be crying everyday, but Aidan's battling it out, and laughing at it, hell he's laughing in Cancers face, and good on you bro, your gonna get through thiis with no problems what-so-ever.

Good luck Bro!

I don't know if you've read Lance Armstrong's book "it's not about the bike", but its about his fight with cancer, and so much of it seems to be mental, wanting to get through it, staying positive etc, so if Aidan has an attitude like that then he's sure to get through it ok.
It really is a terrible thing to happen, but i'm sure you'll get through it fine mate, you'll be back on the bike in no time!

Its been a while since we heard from you! How are you doing?
Title: Re: bad news
Post by: aidan @ projectleeds on May 25, 2005, 10:30
i had my first chemo last week.

i took it really well, wasnt sick, just made me really really tired.
as it happens, my hair started falling out yesterday, so i just shaved it off. doesnt bother me at all really.

i have about 7 months of chemo and hopefully ill be having an operation in 10 weeks to remove the tuma.

everything is going well, the chemo is doing its job already, (i can tense my right calf muscle now, before my nerve for that was trapped by the tuma) which is nice to know.

im positive about it all, its just gonna take a while to get it sorted

cheers for the concern
Title: Re: bad news
Post by: Taff on May 25, 2005, 10:49
Glad to hear you're still being positive about it and that all is going well. definately a good sign if things are beginning to feel better now. maybe in 10 - 12 months we'll all go for a ride to celebrate!!
Got my last treatment next month so looking forward to finishing it all.
Take it easy mate

cheers.

im still getting used to the shaven/ balding head  :P
but its cool, not really a big deal.

im going into hospital on tuesday for 4 or 5 days for my next chemo and i got the stitches taken out of my chest yesterday from where i had my op for my porthacast. (some metal pipes and plastic tubes to inject the chemo)

its all madness!
Title: Re: bad news

Title: Re: bad news
Post by: aidan @ projectleeds on May 26, 2005, 16:36
cheers bro.

i figured that the next 7 or 8 months arent gonna be great, im gonna be getting attatcked by chemo, il be sick, ill have pretty big operations and all that. i know that it aint gonna be a walk in the park.

but once these 7 months or so are over, i have the rest of my life to get on with  :) and i know thisll change me in a good way; seeing as im on crutches atm cos my nerves are still being crushed by the tuma, ill appreciate being able to jump on my bike sooo much when im sorted.

but the chemo has started working too, im getting nerve twitches in my calf that was recently dead up untuil now; as soon as my ankle etc decide to work i should be ALOT more mobile.

its all good; just a blip in my life i guess.

I was watching "bollocks to cancer" and the guy there was able to walk about whilst on some form of IV, i dont know if it was the chemo though, can you not get outside whilst having the treatment if it gets unbearably hot?

good luck fella.

Title: Re: bad news
Post by: aidan @ projectleeds on Jun 20, 2005, 11:21
im glad some of you watched bollocks to cancer.

its basically what im going through but he doesnt have it quite as bad (and he whinges alot!)

you are allowed outside and all that when youre JUST on hydration (yes, your still on a drip, chemo tends to have a red bag over the drip)

however, when you have to walk miles (or what seems like miles) whilst getting chemotherapied you get tired out very very quicky which is darn annoying.

i did get outside yesterday, but unfortunately all of the fag smokers got there before me and the air was fresher in the hospital than outside of it!  >:(

Sincerely hope all goes to plan. I've just had a few months with broken bones and stuff but this really puts it into perspective. Just remember, the mind is the most powerful tool!

By the way, if your bored ever heard about visualisation. Heard about this US POW in Vietnam who was about to learn golf before he went to war. While he was a prisoner he played golf in his head every day, one round in the morning and one in the afternoon. Same thing every day, he had the course designed in his head, the lot. Got released and went back to US and had a round of golf.

You guessed it, shot par first time, never played golf in his life. Just think by the time your out you could be a Freeride God!!!

Anyway, enough deep and meaningless b*ll*cks, get well soon dude.

going in for 2 weeks chemo tonight.

my blood levels arent quite high enough so i have to have another blood transfusion tonight, then hydratoin gets pumped into me after that, then at about 6am tomorrow my chemo starts.

its all new drugs now as the previous drugs were doin nothing and my tuma unfortunately had grown.

these new drugs are my last chance, if these dont work then theres nothing else they can do.

it worries me, but it should work. me hopes  :-\ itll all be ok



due to a new regime of new chwemicals and drugs for the chemo, my protocol is now set to last until about mid next year now  :( bah!

Title: Re: bad news
Post by: DanCassidy on Sep 24, 2005, 13:36
Just been in to see young aidan. The reason hes not been replying on here is that hes been a bit ill......well more ill than usual. The chemo drops his immune system so low that hes very susceptible to illness and disease. So hes had a bit of an off few days. No biggie, hes back to his usual antics of annoying nurses and avoiding his support teacher. Things are getting pretty close to the wire now. The last load of chemo didnt work out too great, which suprised us all. Aidan is now on a final stronger dose of chemo. This is all that can be done medication wise but a lot of the fight is down to aidan and this i know he can take on. We all are behind you and know your going to be ok bro.

Every time i see aidan i get this feeling inside me, its strange. I feel mad, angry, upset. Its not fair and i cant do anything about it. I had a bit of a moment when i left the hospital out of the side door, turned my phone on, went over to my car, sterio came on and that was it, i was back to normal life with missed calls and work to do. Is that fair, why do i get to drive home and aidans stuck in a place he describes as a living graveyard.

Aidan bro i realy wish there was something i can do, we all realy feel for you and there isnt a day goes by when we dont all wish you were out with us. Gapping up stairsets, Avoiding flies at hamsterley or cleaning up my workshop. I bet you miss that last one the most. :)

Next year were going to have such good times man. We will be making you catch up on all the stuff you have missed and i promise i wont make you clean up my apartment anymore either.

much love.

I hope you are getting better (fraid I haven't read this whole thread for quite some time  :-[ ) but for an inspirational read you should so read Lance Armstrong's book, "It's not about the bike", about his battle with cancer. someone else has probably already mentioned it, but I just finsihed it last night and it was very good. Having read it and now understanding what chemo is and what it does to a person, makes me realise how horrendous it really is. I had never realised before. Good luck and keep up the fight.

Hey,

For those of you who arent up to speed with things heres the basics.

Aidan had his first whack of chemo which unfortunatley didnt effect his tumour in the way we had all hoped, infact it grew. Hes now in his second and final treatment of chemo. He has a scan this wednesday which will show us what effect this dose of chemo has had.

Im sure we all want nothing more right now than to hear that hes on the mend and I pray to god that this wednesday gives us all something to be happy about. I strongly believe that in cases like this its very much mind over matter so pleas join me in giving out some positive thoughts to aidan and letting him know were all thinking of him.

much love bro.

Dan.

ive had afew days at home but go in for chemo tonight again, trhis chemo lasts 2 weeks but ill get disconnected on wed for my scans.

oh and on the 8th i have an op to get rid of my catheter once and for all and get some weird button thing in my lower stomach to let me empty my bladder fully. (my tuma is squashing lots of nerves, one being a nerve for my bladder which means i cant fully empty it, hence needing catheters etc.)

Aidan, good luck for tomorrow. I hope all goes well and you get the news you want to hear. I'm going through chemo myself at the moment and this thread and your attitude to the whole thing has been a massive inspiration to me. Stay positive man, things will turn out all right.

right, i have a small op on tuesday just to get rid of my catheter and get some mad crazt button thing in my lower stomach so i can empty my bladder

more importantly, i get results from my scan tomorrow, life or death tomorrow.
its been playing on mym mind like mad, but i just need to keep positive, yet realistic about the consequences of what the results could be

wish me luck

i dont know you, but your actions and the way your treating this is more a big motivation to any one. it puts our petty squables in to a perspective.

thanks jack  :)

got my scan results today
it has stayed the same size as the last scan which was 3 months ago. in that time a tuma would have gotten bigger so the chemo has done something to keep it the same size. so good news, were carrying on with chemo.

i had very bad news afew days ago..

ive been told that im most probably incurable but still have about a 1% chance of pulling through. so they gave me the choice of carrying on with chemotherapy. ive decided to carryo on with it. if theres a chance, ill go for it and hell no im not gonna give up.

its a scary scary time for me, im only 15 and no one deserves this, heres hoping that i pull through and im back riding asap.

s**t bro, I'm so sorry to hear about that. I apologise now if I'm statng the obvious but have you had a second opinion from somewhere else? Have you looked at what treatments are available outside of Britain? My Dr told me that America are currently at the fore front of  cancer research etc, although it would cost it's a small pruce to pay
Title: Re: bad news
Post by: chris barnard on Nov 14, 2005, 15:57
thats a really bad thing to hear. as jack said, it really does make all our little squabbles look stupid.
no one deserves to hear something like that, especially not when theyre 15.
i really hope you pull though this, youve put up such a fight so far you deserve it.
once again, good luck.
Title: Re: bad news
Post by: nicklouse on Nov 14, 2005, 16:28
Ady sorry to hear the prognosis.

1% is all you need.

it is hard to belive that we were riding 11 months ago.
Title: Re: bad news
Post by: LeoC on Nov 14, 2005, 19:44
if theres a chance, ill go for it and hell no im not gonna give up.

damn right, if there is anyone who can do it now, its you. dont forget that while there is that 1%, there is still hope and by keeping that thought in your head, you can really do anything, self doubt is never helpful

good luck !

Leo
Title: Re: bad news
Post by: [Ady] on Nov 14, 2005, 19:52
1% is definately all you need! Hang in there bud!

It's still so hard to beleive with all the medical technology about these days that someone is given a 1% chance to live.. Can't footballers be paid a normal salary so lots of money can go to research or something? Like Chris said, really puts things into perspective.

Just finished treating a guy, a bit older than you with an advanced Sarcoma he has about a 5% survival chance, but was one of the nicest, most positive patients i've treated in a long time, i guess alot like you.

Alot of people think that working in cancer care is always depressing and wonder how i can ever enjoy my job, but its cause we get to work on a daily basis with people like you.

I hope you do well, and always remember to pop back in to see the people who looked after you, its great when a patient who was given a really poor prognosis, walks up and says hello several years later.

Aiden, thought I would finally post having read this thread for a while now. Somehow I get notified of any updates to this post and it's the only one that I get, spooky!

When not riding I work in financial services and run my own M&A business, working in London and the South East of England. Wherever I go I get emails on my mobile and I've sat in business meetings in the city discussing buying and selling businesses and got an email on my mobile notifying me of your progress. So there you go, you've managed to get into some of the most heavily guarded board rooms in the country

 You think things like this dont happen to younger people , Im 18 and your younger than me . I admire your whole attitude towards this . Having all this chemo and operations must be super scary. i cant even begin to imagine . To be this normal , when everyone and yourself knows that somthing this big is hanging over you is amazing. I admire you and your will for life . Dont ever give up . You WILL pull through this .

oh, forgot to mention.

ive had the most chemo in the world.

bone cancers (which is what i have, osteosarcoma) typically demand more intense chemotherapy over long periods of time,
i finished my first basic protocol months and months ago, but when we found it wasnt shrinking we switched to a new very very very very high dose chemo protocol, this protocol is new; and as such im the first person to have started it and complete it (32 people in the US and Europe also started the protocol, but their bodies couldnt take it, so they stopped early)

so ive had more than anybody, ever!

cool eh

another problem with radiotherapy is that the tuma often swells p at first which obviously makes is press on my nervves loafds more. because of this i am in alot of pain constantly and sometimes when the pain breakes throught the morphine barrier it is indescribable how painful it is.

but ill live  :)
Title: Re: bad news
Post by: Bad Ass on May 01, 2006, 16:50
good to hear your on the mend fella, my best friend past away from heart problems about 3 weeks ago, he'd had two heart operations, first to put pigs valve in and second time to put a mechanical on as he became ill again, however by that time 2 days later his illness was became too advanced along with all the other problems, it was a lot more complicated, however I'd be writing all afternoon! He was a very active person and from the first time we went through all this it was a big shock to us let alone him.

However his morale became lowest of the low many times, a few times even I litterally broke down at the end of his bed as I was down there every evening in the hospital with him watching those horrid monitor s/blood, plasma transfer etc. Unfortunately the only thing I could do is keep his moral up, and it did help. Unfortunatley the risk of the second operation was that he could get a bleed on the brain, and the drugs he was on to help the blood flow. this happened and the bleed wasn't able to clot. He was 21. However I know he was getting better just through keeping his chin up, which accounts for a big, no massive amount

From reading your article I know how you have felt, however just keep thinking about your riding, keep your chin up, stay positive and you'll be hitting the berms asap!

your quote "So remember to live each day to the full. Do what you love whenever you want, do it as much as you can; because one day, you might not be able to" is probably one of the best things and inspirational things I've read for a long time. I look forward to hearing your progress mate, take it easy.

Just read through this as fairly new to the forum and new to the sport. What a story of courage and determination. Hope your ripping up those trails in the sky. Rest in peace.

whenever i get angry about something petty like a mechanical on the bike, or having to go to the dentist, anything....

all i have to do is come here, read aidans posts, and it just makes me realise i have to appreciate what ive got, and quit whining. i hate myself for being so pathetic about stuff sometimes when there are people like aidan being so brave, and just so.... strong in comparison to me.

i have to say that aidan seems to be the bravest person i never met, and i think the support he has had off the forum is incredible.

rest in peace man,

luke

RIP aidan

I was in school today and i saw a old bit of newspaper with a thing about aidan on it and how he will be missed.
It summed it up really

Just found this thread, I didn't know Aidan but he is an inspiration to all of us to keep going through any hard times we may face in life, to never give up hope and stay positive.

RIP Aidan

ive been reading and following this for a while now but never posted and now feel a little bit guilty if you like,i never knew Aiden but i feel i know an awful lot about him and the people he used to ride with,having recently had 2 people in my life that had this terrible misfortune one of them came through and has made a full recovery and she was an absoulte warrior all the way through and was only young too (27) but unfortunatley my cousins husband passed away on new years day due to stomach cancer at the age of 32.id just like to say that the support for this guy has been unreal and to everyone that has posted or even thought about Aiden throughout these events deserves a pat on the back.
keep shredding it mate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just read through most of this topic and all of the ride-central article about Aidan. Its so emotional just reading it, even though i never knew of Aidan himself. I cant start to imagine what its like for the people closest to him.
RIP Aidan.

ive just sat and read every single post in this thread.
i know you will never be able to read anyones replys, but your fighting spirit had me in tears at somepoints. my ex-girlfriend recently lost her mum to cancer, and my dad has it at the moment. i never give too much thought to it, but i spoke to him today on the phone, and he wasnt feeling to good, and then i read this thread. made me think about things a bit more, and as people have said previously to me, really does put things in persepctive. clicked onto your myspace link, and it seems that there are a lot of people that really do still care about you.

thanks for making me realise a few things. sucks that the UK has lost what could have been a real talent(from what people have said about your riding).

hope your still riding wherever you are,
Sam

Read this from start to finnish last night hoping there would be good news at the end, but this is f***ing tragic. I couldn't stop thinking about it all day. My sympathies go out to his family and freinds, i can't imagine what it must be like to loose someone so young. Just thinking about death scares the s**t out of me, but his strength and courage throught is an inspiration to all.

We have lost one family member and 2 very close freinds of the family to this evil desease, and i hope this tragic tale persuades everyone to donate whatever you can afford to Cancer Research, so that one day nobody else and their families have to go through this.

R.I.P Aiden.

just scan reasd this this mornign and it is tragc to hear this news.
he looked a very young determined rider.
it must be horrible for his parents to loose there son before they pass away which is all parents dream for them to pas away and for there children to to pass away after them and to live strong.
good bye and hope you are having a good time in heaven.
a good rider lost is not something to forget,so lets ride for Aiden's sake ad keep him in our hearts until we join him up above.
good bye Aiden:(

I haven't been on SDH for at least a year but was watching the BBC news earlier today and they mentioned the kids cancer unit in Leeds which reminded me of Aidens fight so I thought I would  check out his progress only to find out the dude lost his fight 6 months ago.  I never met the guy other than sharing a few posts on this forum a while back but really feel for the loss to his family and the pain that this dude went through.  Top man.

No philosophy here but just to the rest of us, life can be cruel so just enjoy you life and health while you have it.

just wondering if there are any plans for an event to mark the day Aiden passed away?
would be a great way to end the summers riding if there was a big bike event for the teenage cancer trust in memory of Aiden

Ride In Paradise buddy

 Its a good idea, there was a trials rider called DJ who was killed by a car a few years ago. Every year loads and loads of trials riders meet up and have a big ride in memory of him. Yesterday 2 of my mates went to the ride and apperently there were s**t loads of riders and it was just a fun day of riding. In memory of DJ.

Guys,

With the greatest respect, we feel it best to lock this thread now. It will of course remain on the forum, because if ever you need any inspiration you only need look at this thread.

Please feel free to start new topics elsewhere on the forum regarding any future Ride 4 Life events, tributes or gatherings. I hope you all understand our decision.

Aidan Wray Rocks!

The SDH Team
