Caden received a heart transplant at six weeks of age. At age 11, that heart began to fail. He was placed on the national waiting list to receive another heart, but Caden died waiting for his hero;  the hero that could give him another chance at life. One of the last things he did was to participate in a video encouraging organ donation.
