Andy's Cause

Hi, my name is Susan Lahman and this is my son Andrew Smith with his beautiful daughter Arianna.  Eight years ago he was diagnosed with a blood disorder and had to have his spleen removed leaving him very susceptible to infection.  Six weeks ago he contacted sepsis and it developed into septic shock with DIC.  He battled kidney failure and now he is going to lose both feet and limited use of his hands.  Andy is a wonderful and loving father, a veteran of the Iraq war and a caring son and brother.  One month before he was taken ill he was able to purchase a home for him and his daughter.  We are asking for your loving donations to help save his house, make the renovations which will be required to accommodate his disabilities and any equipment needed.  This will be a long journey for Andy emotionally and physically.  Would you share his story with your friends.  All donations would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
