Think of the wonderful “chaos” that exists for a healthy family balancing the responsibilities of maintaining a career, paying bills, managing a household, and transporting kids to and from their activities on time. Now consider the devastating chaos that exists for a family after their child is diagnosed with cancer.
On May 8, 2012, 3 month old Paxton Andrews was taken to his pediatrician for what appeared to be a common cold and possible eye infection. Hours later, doctors confirmed that Paxton did not have a cold, nor an eye infection, but a rare form of cancer. After a valiant fight, Paxton ended his battle with cancer on July 2, 2012.
This is why the Paxton Andrews Foundation was created – to help lighten the loads of these families and mitigate the unimaginable stress. From financial burdens to meals for the entire family, Paxton Andrews Foundation supports warrior families through their devastating journey
The needs of each family are as unique as each child’s cancer and treatment. They collaborate with families to develop and implement customized support.
