Parents of Stratham boy needing transplant reach out to Sens. Shaheen, Ayotte
In the meantime, Aidan Barry and his wife, Midori, are seeking assistance from the offices of Ayotte and Shaheen to expedite the process if one of Behaylu’s siblings, who range in age from about 6 to 19, is a match and needs to be rushed to the United States for the transplant.
“Senator Shaheen’s thoughts are with Behaylu and the Barry family. Our office has been in touch with the family, and we’re assisting them with the visa process,” said Nick Brown, Shaheen’s deputy press secretary.
The Barrys have received support from Exeter and Stratham families and Seacoast United Soccer Club. Behaylu is an avid soccer player who was picked for a Seacoast United team but will now have to take a year off while he battles his disease.
