Andrew Aidan and his dog Beemer have been the pride and joy of their parents, Michelle & Roi ever since they were born. AA loved to take walks outside, play with his best friend Beemer and his Thomas the Tank Engine set of toys along with any other plane, helicopter, car, truck toy he can get his hand on. For those that have met him, they saw the soul of a mature adult in the body of a sweet, loving boy with a beautiful smile. He bravely battled an aggressive, inoperable, rare form of brain tumor called Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor or AT/RT that spread to his spine as well. This type of cancer effects less than 50 children a year in this country. He has been an inspiration to us and we are sure he will be a vessel of motivation to those in similar situations. Thank you God for protecting our boy!

Thank You To The NYPD
Thank You NYPD ESU West Side!
I just want to take a moment and say thank you to the officers that helped us out today when I locked Andrew Aidan in the car while he was in his car seat. I went to open the doors on our loaner car since ours is in the shop again and did not realize that the loaner has a different locking set up than ours and instead of opening the locks I closed the locks and locked myself out while he stayed inside the car. Thankfully he was strapped in his car seat and was not that bothered and eventually fell asleep. I want to thank PO Colon and PO Mitre from the 20th Precinct for their help they really got the Emergency Service Unit (ESU) to us in less than five minutes and calmed us down as they got into the car in less than a minute. As you could all imagine Michelle wanted to kill me because we were at the Vet for Beemer because he caught a bacterial infection (she was worried about that), I had to ask a total stranger to use his phone because I left my phone in the car, not to mention the scene of people that quickly surrounded the car and took videos on the corner of Amsterdam & 83rd Street. Leave it to me to create a scene. I could not believe it. You could imagine how the ride home went. I apologize to my AA and my wife. Sorry and I love you guys!
