Hayden is a friendly 8-year-old from Spring, Texas. He enjoys creating artwork and playing fetch with his dog Pirate. Many boys his age like to watch superhero movies, but Hayden prefers to fight the bad guys himself in his favorite videogame, Skylanders: SWAP Force. While undergoing treatment for a brain tumor, Hayden participated in MD Anderson's Child Life Program. Its recreational activities, like the art classes, really brightened his hospital stay. His stuffed animal Nosy brought him comfort too, its nose worn from countless Eskimo kisses. Hayden is excited that his Christmas-themed truck design was selected for a holiday card and he hopes to have his artwork featured on an ornament one day.
