Here is the article and the fundraising website I told you about this morning. AJ was an incredible young man and was the type of person a parent hopes/wishes his child would grow up to be.
His courageous battle w/leukemia came to an end a little over a week ago, but the family (Dad is a retired Air Force officer and Mom is a Stafford teacher) is still in need to pay off 14 months of expenses accrued from travel, lodging etc while AJ battled his disease at Johns Hopkins, UVA and St Jude's in Memphis.
The fundraiser has a goal of $10,000 and right now they are about $2000 short with a little less than a week to go. The site was started by Julie Grebe, a local middle school teacher in Stafford and a close friend of the Slye's and her son Austin was a Co-Captain (along w/AJ) on NStafford's state runner up team in 2011.
If you could pass this along to anyone you can think of who can help to get this over the top and reach their goal it would be greatly appreciated.
If you'd like to help the family with expenses:
A.J. and his family represent everything good about Stafford and our community.
