Andy's Chapter of Hope


The formation of Andy's Chapter of Hope was truly a cause for celebration! Andy Hanson, founder of the chapter, was diagnosed with leukemia in 1994. While going through treatment, Andy began to volunteer at Foundation events. He started his own chapter in 1995. Andy is a true inspiration to our members who have worked so hard all these years to see leukemia patients like him persevere.

Andy also plays a special role in the Foundation by reaching out to other leukemia patients who are young adults, offering an understanding and support from someone who has "been there." Andy's Chapter of Hope has been joined by the friends and family of people he befriended during their treatment. Chapter members remain inspired by the battles fought by those who did not survive.
