My second cousin Andy was diagnosed in 2011 at the age of 24. He started chemotherapy on his 25th birthday, and after a four-year-long brave battle with brain cancer, Andy passed away on July 24th, 2015. Andy's family, the Ecker's, are my second cousins and a truly special part of my family. Throughout numerous tragedies in their lives, they have showed up countless times to family celebrations, reunions, and funerals. Despite so much loss, Adam, Kendall, Robbie, Susan, Lorraine, Jill, Howard, and the entire family are constantly beaming with support, love and compassion for those around them. I feel so lucky to call them my family. All proceeds go to the Making Headway Foundation, which is dedicated to the Care, Comfort and Cure for children with brain and spinal cord tumors.
