Today is Memorial Day... It's a day that we are happy to have off.. It's a well deserved break from the madness of life that in reality we just don't get enough time away from anymore. This is a day that we just need to worry about the kids having fun, how many people are coming over to the BBQ or driving to the local beach given that it is the un-official start of Summer.
In addition to the break we all get from this day it has great significance because it is a day to remember all of the great men and women that have sacrificed their lives for maintaining and improving our quality of life. It is to these that we say thank you. It is also a day for us that we will honor our Angel Warrior, Andrew Aidan... Our warrior fought bravely and we hope that his experience at MSKCC will hopefully help other children defeat Cancer and improve the quality of others to come. God bless us all and we love you AA.

Andrew Aidan, Our Fighting Warrior!
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!
