Merely 9 years of age, Andrew Emery of South Carolina has recently gained popularity via social media because of his good heart. Apparently, Andrew’s baby brother Dylan is sick with a rare and deadly type of neurological condition and so he wanted to help out with the medical expenses.

Eventually, the boy decided to put up a lemonade stand in Greenwood and sold lemonade and shirts for his baby brother. In just two hours, Andrew was able to raise almost $6,000.

In total, he was able to make $5,860 from his efforts- which will then be added to the $1,300 raised from a benefit concert and the $5,600 they have from GoFundMe.

“I’m gonna spend it on doctor’s bills and stuff and buy him a teddy bear too,” said Andrew.

He also added:

“I just want to help Dylan. He’s my baby brother.”

According to Andrew, he always wanted to have a baby brother and he was overjoyed when his parents Matt and Melissa told him they were expecting.

“I wanted her to have a boy. There’s too many girls at home,” pointed out Andrew.

With everyone’s support, Andrew was able to raise a big amount of money for his brother’s hospitalization.

On a regular basis, Andrew stays in touch with his brother via Facetime – and he misses him badly.

In his own words, he plans to do one thing once the baby finally comes home:

“I’m going to hug him.”

The family is inviting everyone to support Team Dylan.
