We are raising funds to help the family of Andrew Osland pay for the costs to treat his Non-Hodgkin\'s Burkitt Lymphoma. He has been undergoing chemotherapy since early January, and he is scheduled to receive four to eight months of treatment.

Andy Osland is an 8 year old boy from Harris, MN who was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Burkitt’s Lymphoma on January 1st. He had not been feeling well for three weeks and his parents brought him to the doctor three different times because he was experiencing flu like symptoms. Each time, they were sent home. On his last doctor’s visit, the hospital did a cat scan and immediately called them to come back to the hospital because they had found a mass in his intestine. Andy was transported by ambulance to Children’s Hospital where they operated immediately. After the biopsy they had determined it was cancerous. Doctors found cancer in seven different spots in his little body. Andy started chemotherapy on January 2nd and will be in and out of Children’s Hospital for the next 6-8 months.

We have set up a benefit for Andy and his family for the on February 20th at the Withrow Ballroom in Hugo, Minnesota from 4pm to 9pm. The benefit will include food, entertainment, a silent auction, and a raffle. It is our hope to try and raise enough money to help Andy and his family offset the cost of some of his medical expenses and to support the day to day needs of their family.
