WISH GRANTED: Seneca Falls student battling cancer surprised with trip to Disney (video)

It’s been a difficult year for Jayden Noone.

Nearly a year ago he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin Lymphoma, which has a 10 percent mortality rate.

Throughout that fight though, he and his family has kept good spirits.

He was diagnosed in July 2016, and at the time, it was difficult for family who had little background on the disease.

According to Jayden’s step father — Sean Laquidari — his son fought hard throughout the process.

Laquidari’s wife — Michelle — gave an update on the process medically, which led them to this point.

After the diagnosis, she said that he began treatment, which included five cycles of chemo therapy, as well as 12 cycles of radiation.

“He is doing well now,” she said moments before the surprise trip was announced before the entire student body.

“As of now his CT scan came back clear. They’ll watch him for another 10 years,” she added pointing out that his entire family is hopeful that this is the end to a very traumatizing several months.

His final treatment was just before Christmas, which has left a few months to recover from the challenges that chemo therapy brings.

The Seneca Falls Fire Department and Police Department took part in the ceremony, where Make a Wish WNY teamed up with his family to make a trip to Disney World a reality.
