  • In August, doctors at UCLA Medical Center performed Hemispherectomy, cutting out half his brain. Before the surgery, Aiden couldn't walk, talk or feed himself, but now, Aiden has not had a seizure since the surgery.

    "He's showed so much progress in the last five months I think there's a lot more to be had," said Aiden's mother Rachel. "With all the therapy he's getting at school, speech, occupational, physical."

    Mrs. Waters said Aiden's speech is improving, he's walking and even going to school.
