BlueSky Sponsored the Live Like Andi Walk & Run

Topics: Award / Giving Back

BlueSky is proud to announce another community sponsorship we recently supported. On May 14th, BlueSky took part in sponsoring the Live Like Andi Walk & Run & Fashion Walk in Novi, Michigan. The fundraising event was held by the Live Like Andi Foundation to raise money for the Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Research Foundation. Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC) is a very rare type of cancer that affects salivary glands found in many areas on the human body. The disease is very deceptive and there is no known cure, so providing as much support toward research of ACC is the goal of the Live Like Andi Foundation. BlueSky is very glad to have been able to help.

The Live Like Andi Foundation was established in memory of Andrea Whitesell O’Connell, who passed away in 2007 after a 21-year battle with ACC. The Live Like Andi Foundation’s mission is to raise money to fund research leading to a cure of ACC, to support ACC patients and their families, and to award scholarships to students who share Andi’s rare positive outlook during a time of pain. Andi’s story is very touching and her inspiration will last forever.

Andrea Whitesell O’Connell, the inspiration of the Live Like Andi Foundation, was just 19 years old when she was diagnosed with ACC. The life expectancy for ACC patients is five to seven years, but Andi lived and fought the terrible cancer for 21 years. She passed away when she was 40, but her optimism and hope showed her courage during her battle against the disease. Andi’s positive spirit was extremely inspirational and contagious to everyone she met. Although Andi had such a tough battle, her optimism and grace during such a hard time will truly inspire many people for years to come. After her death, Andi’s husband Michael started the Live Like Andi Foundation to provide hope towards finding a cure for ACC. He wants everyone who has dealt with, is dealing with, or knows someone who has lost the fight to cancer to remember to always be courageous and live with happiness and hope just like his late wife Andi did. The Live Like Andi Foundation wants everyone to always remember Andi’s favorite phrase “Live, Laugh, Love” as a hopeful way to get the most out of life.

BlueSky is extremely proud to have been able to sponsor such a great foundation and great cause. For more information on the Live Like Andi Foundation please visit their Facebook Page.
