He sold lemonade and #TeamDylan t-shirts in support of his baby brother.

He raised $5,860 to be added to $1,300 raised at a Friday benefit concert and $5,600 from a GoFundMe site for his brother. 

'I'm gonna spend it on doctor's bills and stuff and buy him a teddy bear too,' Andrew told The Index-Journal

'I just want to help Dylan. He's my baby brother.'

The baby boy is currently at a hospital in Pittsburgh after being diagnosed with Krabbe disease - a rare and often lethal neurological condition.

Andrew said he had always wanted to be a big brother and the excitement only built when his father Matt and his wife Melissa announced they were expecting. 

'I wanted her to have a boy. There's too many girls at home,' Andrew said. 

The elementary school student regularly keeps an eye on his baby brother via Facetime while he remains in the hospital. 

He said he has big plans for when Dylan eventually returns back home.

'I'm going to hug him,' Andrew said. 

A Team Dylan Facebook page has been set up to keep followers up to date with the baby's progress.
