Another successful fundraising event by AndreaRemembered.org. The event raised $140,000 in memory Andrea Fuguay for both Cancer Research and Scholarship funding. Andrea, much too young herself, left behind four young children. However, her memory lives on through AndreaRemembered.org. The organization will donate $50,000 to the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation and $90,000 to the Andrea M. Fuquay Memorial Scholarship Fund. With this donation, the Scholarship fund now donated $250,000 to students who know the pain of losing a parent. The majority of funds raised moving forward will be donated to The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation.
Many thanks to AndreaRemembered.org from the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation for this generous donation. Research and advocacy would not be alive without efforts like AndreaRemembered.org and similar groups!
