Andersen & Company

Meet the Andersens..Rich,Michelle,Ryan,Griffin and Cassidy...Michelle is 42 years young and has worked for Southwest Airlines for the last 22 years and counting. Her 3 daughters and her husband are her world.  10 years ago Rich battled a rare form of cancer and beat it,10 years later we are back for round 2. On August 25 2019 their lives were forever changed...Michelle wasnt feeling well and went to the er.. They ran some tests and came back in with the words no one ever wants to hear...cancer. After multiple tests and countless hours of worrying,we finally have our answer. Michelle was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer(a rare cancer that 2% of people get) that has spread to her liver and lower colon. Michelle must start aggressive chemo and immunotherapy asap.. Michelle will be unable to work during her treatment. Rich will work as much as he can but will need to be by her side fighting this along with her. The girls are enrolled in Catholic school and are some of the most Amazing dancers you will ever see!! We need to keep them there,to keep their lives as normal as possible, thru this difficult time. Michelle has the fight for her life ahead of her! Money and bills need to be the least of her worry.  If y'all know Michelle,at all, you are aware of her love and passion for the Grateful Dead. Which brings us to Andersen & Company. Let us be your light that guides you through this. Let's get her to the top of Franklin's tower cancer free! Please help this Grateful family in anyway you can. Stay strong,stay positive,stay kind! Thank you all!!!
