How many times does Aaron Paul have to do something amazing (or small) before we all just give in and know that he's the one for every person on this planet? You know, that we all don't just love him… but are in love with him??
Hopefully soon, because our hearts are about to burst if he keeps doing stuff like this: Aaron used his twitter power to help a friend battle sickle cell anemia, by raising crucial funds for his treatment!
My cousin Dayton is 23 years old and has been fighting sickle cell anemia his whole life. He's currently in ICU in Denver practically sedated because the pain is so bad. We're trying to get him to UCLA Medical Center in California which hosts the best sickle cell team in the nation. The problem is, he was released from his Medicaid and currently has no insurance. Thankfully, the great people at UCLA have worked it out so that if we can get him there, he can receive treatment and will be approved for emergency Medicare from the state of California. We just can't get him there.
This was just awful, so Aaron stepped in:

Because of this, and the contributions of many, many wonderful human beings, Dayton is on his way to get treatment!!
To everyone who donated yesterday to help save a life I just want to say thank you. Because of YOU he is getting treatment. Truly amazing.

The power of kindness and social media knows no bounds. Just think if we could have this kind of response for everyone who needs it!
If you'd still like to donate to help Dayton out, by all means do so. Without insurance, he'll need all the help he can get!
