My Story

This is Andrew. He passed away on March 3, 2004. While he fought cancer, the local Wendy's owner held a fundraiser in his honor - partly because he would only eat Wendy's chicken nuggets when he didn't feel well. The night of the fundraiser Andrew wasn't feeling well and left early. When he got home he asked "When is the funraiser?" He was told that he had just left it. He replied, "Aw, I missed all the fun." We are holding this FUNraiser for St. Baldrick's to have all the fun Andrew wanted to have and to give as many other kids the best opportunity to be cured or never see cancer in their lives..
