Written by Andrew’s family

– Smart – Sweet – Stubborn – Generous –

Mom, Roxanne, remembers: “Andrew was such a loving and generous boy. He was a great brother. He loved to wake up early on the weekends and make his two younger brothers breakfast. He would not let me help him. He was only 5 so he would push a chair over to the counter and get the bowls and cereal from the cupboard. He would help his brothers get in their booster seats and they would all eat cereal together.”

Mom (Roxanne) – along with Dad (John), brothers Brandon and Nolan, Stepdad, Tracey, step-sisters Mckayla, Jada, and Aryanna, and Grandmother Sandy – want others to know Andrew’s story because:“So people know this is not a rare disease. So many families have children fighting this horrible disease and a cure needs to be found. My child was not a statistic. He was a great person who was loved by so many people. His death affected so many lives. People need to know how DIPG changes so many lives for the worse.”
