My Story

Beautiful, Tanessa Rufina Andaya was born on January 15, 1989. She was a very sweet, funny and courageous baby girl. She loved cheese pizza with lots of black olives and adored her family. Tanessa disliked bedtime and always wanted to play. She was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma at the young age of 9 months. She lost her battle to cancer at 18 months and became an Angel on August 24, 1990. We are honoring her and wish the donations would go to help fight this horrible disease.
