Dedicated to Glioblastoma Multiforme Brain Tumor Research

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.
