I am the president & founder of Blue Faery: The Adrienne Wilson Liver Cancer Association. I started Blue Faery after losing my younger sister Adrienne, whom I raised from the time she was eight years old, to liver cancer at the age of 15. No one should have to lose a loved one to liver cancer, the 2nd most common cause of cancer deaths worldwide.  — Andrea

When Andreas sister died ofnliver cancer, Andrea made it her mission to help others navigate the health Care system and become their own champion with the doctors. She has been working for years to help others find the information they need, but deal with the stress involved in a cancer diagnosis. She truly wants the best for the patients she helps  — Doug
