WASHINGTON (WEEK) — Local first responders and members of the community gathered for the annual “Smoke Out for St. Jude” event, and one very special guest was there to celebrate with friends and family.
10-year old Aidan Williams of Washington was diagnosed with cancer at the age of seven.
After three-and-a-half years of treatment, he completed his final round of chemotherapy Saturday, and a drive-by parade was held for him during Sunday’s event at Countryside Banquet Hall.
A ton of Aidan’s friends, including members of his baseball team, showed up to celebrate his big achievement, which was made complete with fire trucks, food and fun.
“It shows just how great the world can be and how nice people can do stuff for you – I was very shocked,” Aidan said. “Our baseball team – all the kids on it – are amazing people. And I was just very, very surprised when they all showed up.”
Aidan’s mother, Chelsea Williams, said he and his friends will have a “no more chemo” party on Monday.
When asked what he wants to be when he grows up, Aidan told 25 News, either a professional baseball player or professional football player.
