Andrea's Angels

After six years of remission from breast cancer resulting in chemo, radiation, and a mastectomy, Andrea has been diagnosed with recurrent breast cancer.  This time, its presence is diffuse in her bones.  She has been under continued care for approximately a year and has undergone a hip replacement, multiple episodes of radiation therapy, and other medical therapies.

The treatments required to keep the cancer controlled are limited and expensive.  A significant amount of expenses have accumulated despite the existence of health insurance. Please consider donating to help Andrea and her husband cover these urgent medical costs.

Whether you've interacted with Andrea as a professor, a colleague, a friend, or a family member, you know that she is a warm and caring person with a huge heart. She has touched so many lives in the classroom and out. This campaign is a way to give some of that love back to Andrea.

We are grateful in advance for your contributions!
