Centex Community Comes Together to Support Aiden Martin
A Central Texas teen is receiving tons of support from the community after suffering severe injury in an ATV accident on Friday.
Aiden Martin is 14-years-old and is a student in the eighth grade at Little River Academy. He is currently in a coma in intensive care over at McLane Children's in Temple. Support poured in over the weekend as several members of the community got the word out.
200 candles were lit at McLane on Saturday evening as many of Aiden's friends and family prayed together for the young man. Supporters are organizing a benefit for the family's medical bills set for October 7th.
Stephanie Tomasek posted on Facebook, "When one of ours is hurting, it's all of us hurting. This could be any one of our children. We could be in this situation, we could be hurting. Thank you for showing up, giving, texting and praying for Aiden. It's beyond amazing to see the outpouring of love in our community."
