 OZARK, MO
This fundraiser is dedicated to informing and connecting friends and loved ones of Andy Becker: our friend, colleague, son, nephew, uncle, and my brother. The title of this fundraising campaign is inspired by the way Andy deals with many other challenges in his life, with determination and humor :)

This February, Andy was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer. He is currently recovering from a partial colon removal while undergoing several scans and biopsies to determine a chemotherapy treatment plan and the potential need for additional surgeries on his liver. He is physically unable to maintain his architectural fabrication company and his medical bills have piled up quickly and will continue to do so.

We are now looking to friends and family for support. Anything will help, including thoughts and prayers.

Here is a link to Andy's Stupid Cancer blog dedicated to connecting friends and loved ones and sharing updates on his progress:

UPDATE: Results from the recent liver biopsy have returned positive for cancerous lesions on the liver. Stage 4 cancer has been confirmed. A more aggressive chemotherapy treatment will begin this Friday, April 3. Tomorrow, April 2, Andy will have a chemo port surgically implanted in his chest to allow the chemo treatments to be administered. After 2-3 months of chemotherapy a new set of scans will be ordered to see if the liver lesions have responded to the therapy. Most assuredly, a partial liver removal surgery will occur at that time.

Andy has been greatly humbled by all of your words and support and gives his thanks and love to all.
