This nonprofit really helps families with children with cancer, they help with rent, utilities, ways to dr. They help get families vouchers to eat when they in the hospital with their children . They really help all the families they can they just need more funding so they can help more families . They help stock the area the families eat in because hospitals don't feed the families so AAOA buy groceries and fill the pantries so they can have a bowl of cereal , or noodles or something like that while they waiting on the children to get the chemo. They are just a great nonprofit that really does help the families . I saw this happening and it's a great thing . I give this nonprofit 10 stars out of 10 stars

Ayden\u2019s Army of Angels is an amazing nonprofit that truly gives back and goes above and beyond to help their Childhood Cancer and Sickle Cell families. There is so much that they do for their families and they work hard to do it with a personal touch. Because they have a small staff and are able to keep their overhead low they can give more direct services to their families. The only thing I would like for them to improve in is to continue to grow and get additional funding to be able to more of the amazing services they provide and touch even more families.

This non profit is doing wonders for the community. They have help feed families as well as giving families multiple resources to help them survive the horrible pain that comes with not only losing a sick child but also coping with that child as they go thru treatment. This organization also shows parents proper nutrition while going thru treatment and what type of alternative methods families can use to help with the treatment process. I think this organization is doing a great job I wish more of these organization will help as much as this one does. Good job AAOA!

Lindsey is my daughter and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt the love she has in her heart for all the cancer children and their families. She will leave no stone unturned to find a way to help them. I also know first hand, the love and pain she shared with my grandson Ayden. He is the love of her life and will spend the rest of her life to keep his legacy alive, and help the cancer children and their families.

Its such a blessing that this organization is expanding to California!! I have been volunteering at events for this organization since day 1 and it does wonderful things for the families going through the worst time of their lives. Not only do they help financially with rent and medical assistance but during Christmas when most families can not afford to celebrate they spoil the entire family and remind them what Christmas is all about. Also they throw Galas to celebrate the lives and acknowledge the children who have passed away and let the parents have a night to remember

This foundation is amazing ! Lindsey is a selfless woman who is always going above and beyond for the families. Nobody is left out and no detail is missed. She has thrown an amazing Angel gala and provided the mother’s with a wonderful stay and experience . She throws an annual Christmas party , where children are showered with treats and toys, something important for cancer families as cancer therapy depletes most income!

Yes the Founder of the Non Prof has endured pain & loss of her son Ayden. Is where name originated from, AAOA. she devotes her time to giving back to other Families battling from diseases or health challenges. She said gives back to the children in so many ways, like funding for rent, trips to from hospital gas $$,gifts, groceries. She even goes as far as giving demos on clean healthy eating. She raises $$ diligently for struggling families who need a hand through their drastic times that have caused uproar in the home. The non profit as well helps with funding for funerals when a child's life is unable to fight any longer. For all of these reasons I feel this Non Prof is excellent & worthy of Praise & funding.

Ayden's Army of Angels has changed my life. Over a year ago I saw AAOA's Instagram account, and saw Lindsey and her son struggle to get the help he needed so baldy. Unfortunately, Ayden deserved more than he was given, and Lindsey took her pain and created an even bigger charity, so that other children like Ayden could get the help they so badly need. Not only does her Instagram account tell a heartfelt story of survival as a single mother, the information she provides is Raw and uncut. She tells the truth. I have passed on her story to many family and friends whose hearts have also been touched. It is sad to see so many little children loose their lives so early, and to spend so much of it fighting. AAOA has made me a better human. I am forever grateful for Lindsey and Ayden

Since I have become aware of Aydens Army of Angels or AAofA as I call it. I have been inspired by how a woman who has taken one of the most difficult times in her life of losing her most beloved treasure, her son, to cancer and turning that tragic loss into an deeply heartfelt and inspired non-profit. To reach back and take It upon herself to help other children and their parents in a time where they are challenged financially, to the point where life can feel hopeless. So many of the established, (and much larger) organizations have lost touch with the very families they are supposed to help. Lindsey and her organization in less than a years time has donated thousands of dollars in toys, putting smiles on little bitty faces that fill every heart with their hopeful joy in the face of challenges they don’t understand they are facing. Helps families who have to choose between paying bills or paying for care for their child and then facing possible homelessness, lights getting turned off, cars getting repossessed. She has chosen to do everything she can to help families get some form of relief be it a smile, a toy, or a dollar, anything that can help these families who are fighting the same battles she had to experience. A woman who is still grieving her own loss has chosen to stand up and build something selfless. Every woman and man should see the value in this a find a way to put something positive to this VERY WORTHY CAUSE. She has chosen to try to turn her tears of sorrow to tears of joy for so many children and families. One word... inspirational.

I have over 15 years experience working with and for non profit organizations and have come across so many (including many huge multi million dollar ones) that on paper or in the community say they are doing all these wonderful things for the community but in actuality they do not, they are extremely too heavy and most of their funds are not given directly to those who need it. AAOA and it’s founder/president actually helps those in need, it actually does exactly what it says it does on paper and online and so much more that is never published. A small organization with a huge heart and truly makes a difference through its services, events, grants and advocacy in the community. When I say I’ve seen with my own eyes the dedication, the hard word and sacrifice this organization has had and continues to have it amazing and inspiring. These are the types of organizations that truly deserves additional funding to continue to truly make a difference not once a year like the big organizations but on a consistent basis.

I have watched, supported and been amazed by Lindsey’s passion and determination. The love of Ayden’s Army of Angels has for the children and families affected by childhood cancer is truly inspiring. I have had the privilege to help put smiles on the kiddos faces with Lindsey and it was so touching to see the smiles and relief Lindsey is dedicated to bringing to the families that she comes in contact with.

Ayden’s Army is nothing short of AMAZING! My family was hit hard 9/19/18 with the passing of my 2yr old niece. Her insurance policy didn’t mature so, we had to come up with funds quickly to have the best Celebration of Life possible for Aaliyah. Lindsey received my email, responsed quickly and got to work to help our family in anyway possible. Her professionalism and sincerity was a breath of fresh air. Ayden’s Army did more than any large nonprofit had ever considered doing in such a short time. She wanted to help,she did help and she didn’t cause more grief by requesting so much in such a short time She worked the process with ease which gave me peace of mind at every conversation. I am confident in her ability to support families and reach beyond her capacity This nonprofit is definitely necessary and we are forever grateful to such a loving,caring,compassionate person who is forever family!

If your family is going thru it, feeling like NO ONE gets it, no one cares, no one will step up for you and your child, then you need to call AAOA. THERE IS NO ONE LIKE THEM. I cannot tell you how thankful we are to have them in our community. Thank you Lindsey for all you do! I dont want to imagine Las Vegas without you.

I first noticed Ayden and Lindsey's story at the beginning of his fight and since then I continue to watch and support Lindsey anyway I can. I think it is so wonderful what this foundation has done and will continue to do for children that are sick as well as the families that struggle on a day to day basis. Also finding time to include the siblings of the sick children is beautiful to me . So please make this wonderful foundation #1 . Lindsey derserves the help first and for most the children that depend on this foundation does as well. I'm going to continue to support anyway I can. Let's help keep Ayden Satoshi Brown's Legacy Alive...

I watched Ayden’s story and basically his life on Instsgram and absolutely fell in love with his spirit. That little boy was a fighter and such a special little person. I was so heartbroken when I found out that day Ayden passed away, and lost the battle him and his mother fought everyday, but Ayden still lives on. He lives on through his mother, through those people including myself who haven’t forgotten about him and especially through this foundation. I donate every chance I get and I hope nothing but the best for this foundation and will definitely continue to encourage people to look more into helping nonprofit organizations especially this one. I love how strong Ayden’s mother is, to lose a child to cancer or a child period, has got to be hard on a loving parent. This foundation help families and give them hope that there are people who care about what he or she are going through. Bless Ayden, his mother, and Ayden Army of Angels foundation, Ayden would be proud if his mommy...

Aydens Army of Angels is an awesome nonprofit, that's helping to ease the stress that parents are faced with, when dealing with children who are dealing with a life threatning illness. They shine a light on a sometimes dark & lonely time in these parents lives. They help families get assistance with rent, food & anything else they might need. They have even helped to raise funds for children who lose their fight with cancer, so they can have a funeral. I know if given the proper exposure & backing that this nonprofit can have an even greater impact on families all over.

Ayden's Army of Angels is a non profit that lives by what it says. We have been able to self fund the foundation through our first year, and have given back over $140k directly to families in less than 10 months. Aydens Army of Angels is dedicated to creating financial and nutritional resources for our patients, and devotes all of our resources to the families survival of treatment.
