Aaron Wharton Obituary, Death – Aaron Wharton, age seven, passed away due to complications arising from a brain tumor. The news has left us in a state of profound mourning. Aaron battled the illness valiantly for three years, but he lost his courageous battle on April 9th, leaving behind his mother, Nicola, and his father, Lee. On Facebook, Nicola announced the tragic news to her friends and family by writing, “We are beyond heartbroken to share with you that Aaron, our brave and beautiful boy, fell asleep peacefully in the early hours of Sunday morning, surrounded by so much love.”He was and still is our golden superhero, and he always will be.
His tenacity and unwavering commitment will always serve as a model for us to emulate. Everyone he came in contact with admired him for his charming demeanor and contagious grin. We just cannot fathom how we will be able to go on with our lives if Aaron is not a part of them. She went on to say that if love had been able to rescue you, then you would have lived forever.
In April of 2020, when Aaron was just four years old, he received the first diagnosis that he had a grade 3 anaplastic ependymoma. Even after enduring four brain operations, chemotherapy, and radiation treatment, the tumor on his brain returned in January 2023, and the disease spread throughout his body. His parents were informed that there were no other medical alternatives that could be pursued.
After Aaron was diagnosed with brain cancer, his family collaborated with Brain Tumor Research to collect money for the organization and participated in many charitable campaigns, including lending their support to our Level Up and Stop the Devastation Petition Report. During this time of great suffering, our thoughts and prayers are with Aaron’s loved ones, especially Nicola and Lee. As we continue our search for a treatment, we will remember him in our prayers and thoughts.
