Thank you for visiting itsAaron.com!

Aaron and I have partnered together because we have a shared passion for making a difference. I believe strongly in what Aaron stands for. He works extremely hard as an MVP quarterback, but also invests very significant time and resources in the community. Aaron truly cares about people.

When I was a kid my parents taught me how to care and to strive to always positively impact others' lives, if possible. My dad was a police captain in New Jersey, a hardworking and honest man. My mother was an inspiration. She battled cancer for over thirty years – a fantastic lady who I miss very much since she passed away from cancer only a few years ago. They taught me that what I do with my life can impact the community I live in, one way or another, and I take their lessons to heart each and every day. My wife Nancy, and our children, Steven and Lauren, make a concerted effort to give back to our community on a daily basis.

So when Aaron and I were looking for a way to maximize our partnership, it made perfect sense to create itsaaron.com. Aaron and I support multiple organizations individually, but we decided to choose an organization whose efforts deeply touched each of us - one that we could highlight together. We chose the MACC Fund.

As a community, we've lost far too many unbelievably positive and admirable kids to cancer. The MACC Fund is one of the pre-eminent organizations in the country that strives to cure childhood cancer and blood disorders through research. No family should ever lose a child, or experience the agony of watching their child battle cancer or a blood disease. Although progress has been made, more progress needs to be made. Please join me and Aaron. Together, we can all make a difference. Get involved!

And stay tuned… Because itsAaron.com is just getting started.

Season 01

We have many favorite memories from season one of itsAaron.com: Aaron wearing Maggie’s cowboy hat, Dijon dominating Aaron in the football video game, and the very powerful conversation between Aaron and Brandon. Please take time to view these very important episodes from season one, and visit MACCFund.org to learn more about how you can make a difference in the lives of kids like Maggie, Dijon and Brandon.

  • Meet Maggie

    Meet Maggie

    Maggie was born almost 11 years ago with a tumor the size of a golf ball under her tongue. After many months of chemo therapy and difficult surgeries, Maggie is cancer free. She loves soccer, the Packers, and American Girl Dolls. She's also a talented artist.

  • Meet Dijon

    Meet Dijon

    Dijon is 12 years old, and he had sickle cell anemia until he was cured by a bonemarrow transplant from his little brother. His story is striking and he wants to share it. Well, Dijon, your favorite quatertack is at the door, and he's going to help you with that.

  • Meet Brandon

    Meet Brandon

    Brandon has wisdom for life. He's a quiet guy but he can say a lot about what it means to ‘never give up.’ When he was 12, he was diagnosed with Leukemia. He fought it with his parents and doctors, and eventually won, but it wasn't easy.
