For about 9 months, Andols has faced some chronic medical issues. After six trips to the ER, numerous specialists (one of which who was stumped and bowed out of his case), surgery, physical therapy, and a host of prescribed and expensive medications with minimal efficacy, there is nothing substantive to show for it.

Meanwhile, this illness has left him unable to work, his medical bills are piling up. and he’s been forced to stay with family as we work to get him well. We are optimistic and prayerful that we will eventually find the answers that will get him back to wellness, but at this point, it’s pretty open-ended.

If Andols' music touched or improved your life in any way, we hope that you will make a donation of any size to help ease this burden. Thank you in advance, and be assured that any funds will go straight to debt-reduction with the balance into a reserve for future medical expenses.

From our Dad -

"Friends of Andols:

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the kind and encouraging comments you’ve posted for my son Andols (Andy!), and I thank son, Tim, for coordinating this effort. He’s with me and mom Alys, and we’re working with him to find healthcare providers who can identify exactly what is wrong and get it fixed. In the mean time, we take it day by day. Your generous contributions at any level fill us with gratitude for all you have done and will do. I, like many of you, would like to see Andols return to the kit where his God-given gifts are centered. Let’s get him well, and then we’ll see.

Again, thank you so much for supporting Andols both financially and emotionally. "

Thank you all. I've seen some people request a little more info so that they know what's going on, but Andols requested that I not put anything in too specific. I will say this: His issue is abdominal. He has good days and bad days. On good days, he can move around a bit and perhaps run an errand. On bad days he can't get out of bed or even bend over, much less eat very much. He has lost a ton of weight because of this and is a bit emaciated.

Hopefully that gives you a little more clarity about what's going on without violating his wishes. Thank you all again for your wonderful support of my brother.

The flame was almost extinguished There's a will that had faded and escaped from me Two years have passed and they wilted away All that was left were memories of days I never lived Now the fight is on, until there's nothing left I'll fight like never before The fight is on, until my final breath I've never wanted anything more I must never let it die Bonds are strengthened when they've been tested And mended when they've been torn So give all of yourself that there is to give Cause in life to have never risked is to have never lived Now the fight is on, until there's nothing left I'll fight like never before The fight is on, until my final breath I've never wanted anything more I must never let it die So resolve, reassure and push on without fear Ignite the flame, because only you govern what tomorrow holds It's inside us all waiting to be awoken It's more than words describe This is the spark, let it burn, make it build It will never be denied Because the fight is on, until there's nothing left I'll fight like never before The fight is on, until my final breath I've never wanted anything more I must never let it die Will we let it die? NEVER

I'm fighting myself. your music has gotten me through my first, and now second battle with Leukemia. I understand what it is like to feel misunderstood, move back in with your parents, feeling like you have no control over your life... i could tell you a million clichés but they wont help just gotta find what keeps you sane and not be so angry on the bad days. try not to let it change you into an angry person; although youre allowed those days. use the rage to fight this. we can do this best of luck. as I always say, Stay Brutal.
