Fighting for Andy

What Happened
On June 4, 2018, Andy went to the doctor thinking he needed something more for some strong headaches he was having, but what he learned changed his life - and all of those people who love Andy.

Learning that day that he had a brain tumor, Andy went in for immediate surgery  on June 5th.  And, as he is recovering, we are learning more about just what type of dangerous tumor he had, a glioblastoma, the size of a large lemon.  

As funny as Andy is, a tumor like this is no joking matter. Starting tomorrow, June 20th, Andy begins radiation and chemo treatments that will continue until the beginning of next year  It's going to be a long road to travel, and we need your immediate help.

Andy, the Father of 2
Andy is the incredible father to 2 young kids, Rowan (7) and Callum (5).  He dedicated his life to raising his children, as well as teaching acting and participating in TV shows when he had the chance.  Unfortunately, being sick now, he cannot continue working and has no income to pay his medical expenses, not to mention helping care for his 2 amazing kiddos.

What can you do to help?
First and foremost, we need your prayers. Please pray for Andy, his children, and his family as they go through this extremely difficult time. Also,  Andy will never ask for help, but, as I'm sure you all can understand, he needs it more than ever.  If Andy has touched your life in some way, would you please consider helping him financially to support his medical costs and immediate family care?

My connection with Andy

(Andy studying at Purdue)

Andy and I have gone to school with each other since the 2nd grade, through grade school, middle school, and high school at Benet Academy.  We became close at Benet and decided to room with each other at Purdue.

Andy has added more joy to my life than any other friend. We remain the closest of friends to this day - both of us being the godfather to each other's children.

Please, if you can help Andy, in any way, would you please consider giving him a chance to overcome this dreadful disease?  He brings so much joy to all of us - it's our turn to bring it to Andy, and ease him of the financial burden, allowing him to heal and not worry about bills.  

Please contact me if you have any questions at any time.  And see Andy's CaringBridge  page for more detailed information.
