Stephanie Rocuskie- Team Ayden
This August 3rd-4th I will be attempting to run one mile every hour for 24 consecutive hours in the Anytime Fitness 24 in 24 Challenge.
As an oncology nurse , I see so many people go through some of the hardest times of their lives. I see the strength and courage it takes to fight. I run 24 miles in 24 hours to help support that courage and strength that each of these beautiful and courageous kids have. I run to give back to kids just like Ayden who have gone through so much already. I run to help Ayden get his big wish of going to Disney World with his family.
Ayden was born on September 6, 2013 and he was transferred to the NICU due to the lack of oxygen. He has suffered with a number of medical issues including PEG, Cystic Fibrosis, GURD, GI disorder, MRSA with viral meningitis, CDIFF, and a Blood Clot Disorder. Additionally, Ayden battles Hypohydronic Ectodermal Dysplasia (HED). This condition causes Ayden to lack sweat glands, tear ducts, teeth, a voice, hair, and fingernails. It has also caused lung and breathing issues, and deterioration of the lining of his stomach.
Will you support my efforts and help me grant Ayden’s Big Wish?
