Title: Spare a prayer for Andy, our theme music composer
Post by: bayonetbrant on November 17, 2017, 09:35:58 AM
His wife has been fighting breast cancer for several years now, and it appears as though they may be on final approach as he's taking FMLA leave from work through the holidays.   :-\

It's pretty tough for them, too, as they also have 3 teenage kids w/ various levels of autism / special needs.

Please give your loved ones an extra hug this weekend.

Sorry to read this.

I already lost too many family members and friends to this terrible disease.

They'll definitely be in my prayers.

Are there any plans for crowdfunded assistance?

I saw he posted an update recently that didn't bode well. I wish I knew what words to say to make this easier. Been through it with family members but not a spouse.

latest update from Andy

We are still with Teri, never count this woman out. Itís a testament to how she ate and exercised, her heart and lungs have been so strong that she is still soldiering along. It is still progressing, but our nurse isnít making predictions anymore because Teri keeps proving her wrong. Thatís my girl :)

.... snip ....

I wonít go into details about the stressful and scary things that have happened the last couple of days, but I wanted everyone to know that she is still with us, resting comfortably with the pain under control, is not scared anymore and is at peace with whatís going on.

From the sounds of Andy's latest online note, it could be this weekend that Teri finally passes on...

Very sad news indeed. I lost my Father to cancer and in the end it was a blessing when he passed to end his suffering. A much better, and cancer-free, world awaits them on the Other Side.

At 4:15am, my wife Teri won her battle with cancer. She won by living with grace, humor, a fierce devotion to our kids, lived with love, and she never let her fight with cancer define her or who she was.

Cancer took my mother when I was 10, and I curse the fucking disease everyday. My thoughts are with Andy! Keep slinging that guitar bro - you are kick ass!
