This is the Andrew Taylor Recovery Fund. Thanks so much for any support you can provide to Andrew (aka Andy, Drew)!

Please help assist with medical/daily living expenses to alleviate the financial burden of multiple surgeries and an extended stay in ICU.

We are Andrew's Aunt Tricia and Uncle Larry in NYC. We want to help Andrew as much as we can from afar, and want to help him through this challenging time.

All funds will go to Andrew, to help with any medical obligations and related expenses not covered by insurance.

When Andrew was a little blonde baby, he charmed everyone with his smile. Later, it was his sense of humor...evolving from knock-knock jokes to his more subtle closed-mouth smiles of today.

And Andrew has always been ACTIVE. When he visited us in Hoboken, NJ fifteen years ago, he couldn't help himself, but to run ahead, jumping up and down sidewalks and ledges, and bouncing about as if he was just waiting for a skateboard. A couple of years ago, I was so happy when I got to witness him at the Brooklyn Bridge Banks, where he began to teach my son Sam how to skateboard (at the ripe age of 3)!

I felt so proud of Andrew then. And I still have so many reasons to be proud of Andrew now. He is strong, funny, resilient... despite facing so many challenges and hardships in life even before this accident, even before this long stay in ICU.

I know we all can't imagine him NOT skateboarding. We don't want to imagine him NOT doing what he loves. Our hope is that we can somehow help him heal, and that we can help set him up for a successful return to "normal."

To our extended family and friends who support our beloved nephew, we thank you. We thank you for any support you can provide. But most importantly, we thank you for your thoughts, prayers, and love for Andrew. We believe in him and know that you do too.

If you have any questions or would like to speak to a family representative, please feel free to call: Tricia Kieran (Aunt) at 347.575.9286 or Larry Kieran (Uncle) at 201.923.5750.

Tricia, Larry & Sam Kieran
