Alicia’s Story

On August 25, 2010, our friend and consultant, Kitty, learned that her 8-year-old daughter, Alicia, had a brain tumor. For Kitty and her husband Juan, this was the worst moment of their lives, but thanks to a world-class hospital and her incredible team of doctors and nurses, Alicia received the best possible care.  Following surgery, it was determined that Alicia’s tumor was not malignant, but she still had to undergo 13 months of chemotherapy. This took some getting used to for her parents, but Alicia, as always, set a great example for everyone. One night when chatting before bed, she said to her dad “I’m kind of scared, but I’ll do everything I can to get better as quickly as possible.” Her courage is an inspiration to us all and in early November, she celebrated her 9th birthday. Alicia is doing well under the circumstances and she is determined to see that other children are also able to receive the best possible treatment, and so are we at AIM. For this reason, we have made a donation in the name of all our associates, clients and friends to the Childhood Brain Tumor Foundation in honor of Alicia.  Please visit the CBTF website to learn how you, too, can help.


Best Wishes for 2011!
