A FUNDRAISER has been set up to support a teen battling cancer for a second time. 

In February 2022, Aiden Waller was diagnosed with osteosarcoma of the left femur.

The 14-year-old immediately started chemotherapy and had surgery to remove the Femur, Knee joint, and 50% of his quad muscles, before going into remission in January this year.

During and after his treatment, Aiden and his family, who live in Essex came up to the SToK Cae Ras as guests of Ryan Reynolds to watch a couple of Wrexham games. 

His first visit was late in 2022, before returning to see Wrexham crowned National League champions against Boreham Wood in April along with Ryan and co-owner Rob McElhenney.

Then came a "crushing" blow in August of this year when Aiden was told the cancer had come back in the ball joint of his left hip.

Another major operation followed, which took its toll on the Marvel-mad teen. Now a fundraiser has been set up to help Aiden through regular physiotherapy and also to secure an electric wheelchair to support his recovery. 

A virtual duck race has been set up online with all funds going to support Aiden, who has had a "very tough" few months says mum Sarah. 

She added: "Since the relapse in August, times have been very tough for Aiden and his mental health took a downward spiral.

"Once he finally came out of hospital he has been able to concentrate on physiotherapy and is moving forward with his life.

"The setback has been very hard on him, but he has his wish trip on the horizon which he is looking forward to very much.

"Once again the support of the community is what is helping him get through this."
