Local Band "THE REMEDY" to Play at Cruisin for Kids 2016

Local members of the band "THE REMEDY" will be headlining at this year's Cruisin' for Kids Charity Car show!

THE REMEDY delivers classic rock favorites that range from Santana, Dire Straits, Steely Dan and The Allman Brothers, to danceable classic Motown hits.

THE REMEDY began in mid 2005, playing clubs throughout Rockland and North Jersey, building a solid fan base. 

The original guitar duo, Steve Buckley & Adam Slayton, regrouped in 2012 with an all new lineup of stellar musicians: Billy Paschall on drums, Steven Chichetti on keys, vocals and harp, and David Wasserman on bass and vocals - all of whom have been playing a variety of styles and musical genres for decades.

Cruisin for Kids 2016

The proceeds from this year's Cruisin for Kids will go to support Aiyanna Faria, a 14 year old from West Haverstraw, NY.

Aiyanna was diagnosed in 2009 with Davidoff Dyke Mason Syndrome.

Davidoff Dyke Mason Syndrome refers to atrophy or hypoplasia of one cerebral hemisphere (hemi atrophy) which is usually due to the developing brain in fetal or early childhood period. 

The clinical features are variable and depend to the extent of the brain injury. More commonly they are present with recurrent seizures, facial asymmetry, learning disability and speech and language disorders. 

Due to insurance we had to change doctors. We have tried every seizure medicines with no long standing results. She is currently having 10 -15 seizures a day and recently they have been more grand mal along with dizziness, migraines and vomiting. 

She has had several tests done and has no brain function on the left side of her brain. Her right side was fully functional and now since it has been so long that the right side is starting to be damaged, resulting in memory loss. 

She has had a number of surgeries recently to try to help but it is unknown what relief it will bring. 

Aiyanna is fun loving and despite these challenges has maintained a positive attitude. She is a go getter and will almost do anything just to be a normal 14 year old. 
Although we are realistic to the fact that there is no cure, we just need to give her as much time as possible. 

We want her to do as much as she can with little effects from her treatment and disease as possible. She deserves to be able to live her life as normal as possible. Thank you for your support.
