“What a wonderful UNSELFISH little boy!
This is such a beautiful thing for this child to do for other ill children, too many get spoiled by parents once they get a horrrible disease & they make the child think ONLY of themselves and what they can get from others, even if its just a cookie or chips they know they shouldn’t have. I have seen this over and over. KUDOS go out to Aaron’s parents for teaching him to have love and respect for others. A wonderful family who in their own pain and worry have every right to be proud of their little son .

Here is some Random Feedback:
My name is xxxx, and I am 24 years old. I also suffer from Crohn’s Disease. I came across your charity while I was doing some research on Crohn’s. It makes me happy to see a young boy doing the work you are doing for a great cause! I read your story and I can relate. I too was diagnosed at a young age. I was 10 years old when I first started getting sick and my first hospitalization lasted for 6 whole months! I struggled for many years with the disease. Like you, I have gone through many many tests, procedures, hospitalizations, and medications. Two years ago I became very very sick and was put on Remicade like you! I immediately began to feel much better and have been feeling good ever since. I was lucky enough to have insurance and my parent’s help to pay for my Remicade. But as you know, there are many children who are not as lucky as you and I and cannot afford this expensive medication.
I just wanted to let you know that I think what you are doing is great and to keep up the good work! I have made a donation to your charity and I will continue to support you in the future!
I currently live in Ontario. If you are ever doing any fundraisers nearby I would be happy to help!
