Aiden, a Kissimmee boy who had a tumor removed from one of his kidneys, was joined at Orlando Health's UF Health Cancer Center by the Power Rangers, who helped him with his ringing of the bell ceremony, a tradition shared by cancer patients receiving their final treatment.

Aiden has undergone six radiation treatments this month, in addition to several surgeries, to remove the tumor.

Doctor say Aiden's prognosis is good, but he will have to complete six months of chemotherapy.

The boy's family has set up a GoFundMe account for his care.
