On the morning of October 31, 2013, Villanova University Junior, Andrew Accardi, sadly passed away at the age of 20 after a 15-year battle with Neuroblastoma and later, Leukemia. Throughout his memorable life, Andrew continuously balanced his demanding classes and extracurriculars with an exhausting schedule of treatment and hospital visits.
Andrew’s passing has only motivated us to fight harder towards accomplishing his goal of making a difference in this world, and we are committed to expanding the foundation that Andrew began. Through various fundraising events that we are currently planning, we hope to generate enough money to help fund substantial advancements in the research for a cure for Neuroblastoma and other pediatric cancers. We are reaching out to anyone who would be willing to help fundraising in any way. Andrew wanted to make a difference in this world, and now in honor of him, we must come together in order to accomplish his goal.
