More than 2 million people in the United States are diagnosed with cancer each year. The Andrea Lynn Cancer Fund focuses on the family, providing for an array of needs and support to those suffering with the hardships of cancer. Following diagnosis and throughout the battle against cancer, there are many obstacles that are often unknown and unmentioned, including the stress of treatment, care, or losing a loved one’s income, that make dealing with cancer more difficult. The Andrea Lynn Cancer Fund strives to help with these burdens to get families back on track so they can spend more time focusing on their loved ones.
The Andrea Lynn Cancer Fund was established in 2006 in the memory of Andrea Lynn Beckwith, who lost her battle with colon cancer in 1993. Her children, Brent and Shane Beckwith and Karie Nash, along with a close-knit group of family, friends and supporters, head up the board of directors for the charity.
