White Sox Manager, Ozzie Guillen Records Touching Message for 17-year-old Cancer Patient

Say what you want about the Guillens, they have good hearts.

After Ozzie Guillen Jr. heard about 17-year-old, Aaron Sims' cancer relapse he asked his father, White Sox Manager, Ozzie Guillen to record this touching message for him.



Aaron is an avid White Sox fan and next to all the pictures of his family and friends decorating his hospital room, sits his White Sox cap.

His mom was thankful for the gesture and with her approval this post was created.

Aaron is a One Step at a Time Camper, a program designed for kids with cancer to regain their childhood. To learn more visit http://onestepcamp.org.

Ozzie is just one more person pulling for Aaron to get healthy, but it truly is moving to see someone in his position take the time to do this.

  • Ozzie,
    You were lovely the day the White Sox welcomed Aaron to the ballpark. You called him "Popi" and it made all of us smile. (I gave Aaron a bear and we named him "Popi" to commemorate that incredible day!) I watched the video you sent to Aaron and it made me cry. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy life to a make a difference in Aaron's. You've converted a lifelong Cubs fan!

    In appreciation and gratitude,
    Annice Moses

  • Ozzie,
    Thank you so much for showing your support for Aaron. He is an absolutely amazing kid and that video and also the night visiting the park made him smile his amazing smile. I've watched the video about 30 times and will never be able to tell you how much that means to everyone who loves Aaron (and that's a lot of people). Thank you for taking a minute out of Spring training to make the video for Aaron!
