When Bill Kohler’s nine-year-old son, Ayden, was diagnosed with terminal cancer, his entire world was turned upside down. Understandably, the brave boy and his dad refused to give up without a fight, and they held on for as long as they could. But when Ayden told him, “I gotta quit,” Bill realized that the struggle was over. And what the father said next was incredibly heartbreaking.
In August 2016 Ayden Zeigler-Kohler lived with his family in York, Pennsylvania, and was a regular nine-year-old boy. Like many young kids his age, for instance, Ayden was extremely active and loved to play football.
