Join Our Army
The Paxton Andrews Foundation has grown by the thousands, from our home base in Milwaukee, over to Cali, down to Texas, clear over to New York, straight up to Canada. PaxLove has even jumped the pond and landed inside the kindest souls in London, and Switzerland, went ‘down-under’ to Australia and back around again.
Meet Our Warriors
We work closely with families fighting childhood cancer to lighten their load and mitigate the unimaginable stress associated with childhood cancer. The needs of each family are as unique as each child’s cancer and treatment. We collaborate with families to develop and implement customized support.
Our Peaceful Warrior
On May 8, 2012, Paxton Andrews was taken to his pediatrician for what appeared to be a common cold and possible eye infection. Hours later, doctors confirmed that 3 month old Paxton did not have a cold, nor an eye infection, but a rare form of cancer. After a valiant fight, Paxton ended his battle with cancer on July 2, 2012.
Think of the wonderful “chaos” that exists for a healthy family balancing the responsibilities of maintaining a career, paying bills, managing a household, and transporting kids to and from their activities on time. Now consider the devastating chaos that exists for a family after their child is diagnosed with cancer.
That’s why we’ve established core services, to help our lighten the loads of our families and mitigate the unimaginable stress. From financial burdens to meals for the entire family, we’re here to support our warrior families through their devastating journey.
