We’d like to introduce you to Aiden Lipscomb, a fun-loving, energetic, yet sometimes expectedly shy, animated three year old from Northern Virginia. He’s still just a toddler but his heart is full of life and just like the rest of us bleeds burgundy and gold!
He claims to be your number one Redskins fan something that after reminiscing on the afternoon spent with Aiden is hard to argue.
His Dad, Chris Lipscomb, grew up in a Redskins family located in Alexandria, Virginia, while his Mom, Leslie Lipscomb, was raised in nearby Clifton, so there was never any doubt in their minds that their little boy Aiden would grow up singing ‘Hail to the Redskins!’ – his favorite song by the way.
When asked about his favorite Redskins player without hesitation he answered smiling, “Chris Cooley.” His answer was fitting seeing as his #47 jersey was the shirt that he decided to sport on his dream tour of Redskins Park.
What you would never be able to tell without knowing his story is that at just five months old Aiden was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), an aggressive type of muscle cancer.
