Andy is a 17 year-old junior at North Ridge High School in Elkhart, Indiana where he plays baseball. On December 23rd, 2014 Andy was diagnosed Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and within 6 months, he was back on the field playing baseball with his high school team
Andy’s sporting experience request was a trip to a Chicago Cubs Game to meet Jon Lester. The Courage for Life Foundation sent him and his family by limousine to Chicago where they stayed at the beautiful Majestic Hotel, just a half mile from Wrigley Field.
Unfortunately, the game was rained out but the great people at the Cubs organization made arrangements to send Andy to the locker room to meet many of the Cubs players. The Cubs also ensured that Andy could catch a game by giving him and his family tickets to the next night’s game.
The experience was a great success for Andy, the Cubs, and the Courage for Life Foundation.
