The loving big brother of a baby boy suffering from a rare neurological condition has raised money to cover his sibling’s medical expenses.

Nine year old, Andrew Emery, raised an impressive $8000 au in just two hours, all from selling lemonade and stickers.

His brother, Dylan, remains at a hospital in Pittsburgh receiving ongoing treatment.

“I’m gonna spend it on doctor’s bills and stuff and buy him a teddy bear too. I just want to help Dylan. He’s my baby brother,” he told The Index-Journal.

As well as the $8000 raised from his drinks stall, Andrew managed to raise $1700 from a benefit concert to add to a further $21,000+ being raised via a GoFundMe page.

What an amazing big brother!
