BC Children’s Dream Lotto: Aiden’s road to recovery

Aiden Borne was diagnosed with two kinds of cancer in the span of three years

Kelowna local, Aiden Borne, was diagnosed with Burkett lymphoma at 16-years-old.

Borne received his first cancer diagnosis at BC Children’s Hospital, after being treated for tonsillitis and mono at Kelowna General Hospital. Two years later, Borne was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma large T cell cancer when he discovered a lump on his side. Both cancer diagnosis were not related.

Aiden’s mother, Robyn Janice, was incredibly pleased with the care Aiden received during his two battles with cancer.

“The fact that we live in B.C. and have such specialized care, incredible knowledge and research is amazing,” she said. “The research is so important for the kids who are fighting and the kids who will be fighting in the future.”
