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!

AA...The Little Engine That Could
This book was written about kids like Andrew Aidan.
Well, what can I say?....Our big warrior is still fighting tooth and nail to be with us...yesterday evening was a good evening for him. He was very stable and slept all day. We had some more friends and family come over last night, including Michelle's former colleagues from Barclays, Dr. Kalish, Melissa L., Veronica L. & Kerry K. We had a very nice prayer session as well as we continue to hope for a prayer. He gives us more hope as the days go on. Early this morning, he did have a fever of 101.84F. Pretty high for anybody. Michelle jumped into action and got some cold compresses and Tylenol was able to get his fever back under. Thankfully, since then he has been very good. He has been responsive. Michelle tried putting on AA's oxygen mask and he kept turning his head away because he did not want her to put it on. He also was responsive to one of the doctors as well. Father Jack and Sister Patricia from Our Lady of Fatima came by today and said a prayer for us as well. We also had a second group of people come from another church to pray for AA. We hope that God is hearing all the prayers and good thoughts that so many people have for AA and us that makes him change his mind in regards to bringing AA up to heaven at this moment. Until next time.
