I am participating in Marathon Weekend and raising money in memory of my amazing son, Andre.
Andre was diagnosed at 14 with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. He was treated at St. Jude and received the best medical care this world had to offer. For 2 years and 4 months Andre battled his disease. He endured intense chemotherapy, 2 stem cell transplants and overcame life threatening infections and complications. Andre fought long and hard but unfortunately it was not God's will for Andre to be healed this side of heaven. Andre's courageous journey and life on earth ended on June 15, 2012.
Andre's strength, courage, and unwavering faith in God are an inspiration to all who knew him.
Andre is my angel and my hero.
Please help support St. Jude's mission. Finding cures. Saving children.
