Dedicated to Glioblastoma Multiforme Brain
The Andy Fund was created by family and friends to honor the memory
of Andrea "Andy" Clark Nelson who died on April 3, 1997 after
valiantly fighting a battle with a glioblastoma multiforme, grade IV brain tumor
for over five long years. Known and loved by many in her Vermont community and
beyond, Andy created and managed the
Swift House Inn in Middlebury.
Andy left specific instructions that she wanted no services at the time
if her death, but it was a dream of Andy's that one day a cure for glioblastoma
would be found. As a living memorial to Andy, The Andy Fund is supporting the
important research being conducted at
Norris Cotton Cancer Center, a National Cancer Center Institute-designated
Comprehensive Cancer Center at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
The Andy Fund is dedicated to preventing, halting the spread
of, and finding a cure for glioblastoma multiforme grade IV brain tumors.
- Informing the public of research being conducted by the
