ABOUT THE FRIENDSHIP FESTIVAL
To benefit St. Francis Center, friends and family of Andy are hosting The Friendship Festival, a fundraiser on February 12, 2012 – the same month as Andy’s birthday – to …bring awareness to the issue of mental illness among teens and young adults. The event will feature music, food, raffle items and a fun experience for all ages and education on how to support someone we may know who struggles with an emotional or mental disorder.
ABOUT ANDY
“Too gentle for this world” are the words I often heard expressed in reference to my son, Andrew Wade, in the last few years of his life. He died on October 14, 2011 at 24 years, 8 months from his struggle with bipolar disorder. To read Andy’s story visit www.andywadefriendshipfund.com
