Andrea Deegan Dwyer Memorial Fund

Andrea was 42 years old and the mother of two young boys when she passed away in late October following a five year fight with breast cancer.  Despite cancer's attempt to knock her down, she lived each day with passion for what mattered most to her--with little concern for what didn't. 

Her husband Tim, the boys' step-father, will raise Howard (11) and Paxton (7) into young men.  I am certain he will make Andrea proud. 

In my conversations with Andrea during her final days, her focus was not on the end of her life, but ensuring a great future for her sons. It's what mattered most to her.

If you want to help, consider donating to this memorial fund. All money raised will go to a trust set up for Howard and Paxton's college expenses.   Please pass on the link to others. Thank you for your generosity!


Andrea and I met at Capital One in 2011 and became friends. If you have questions about Andrea or this fund, please feel free to message me or contact Tim.
