Family and friends of the Andersson's are supporting Mary in her fight against cancer. We hope you can help us by making a contribution!

Mary is a contemporary sculptural mixed media artist. In her career; she has won 17 awards. Her paintings appear in government buildings, restaurants, magazines, and private collections through out United States and Europe.

Mikael Andersson, Director of Tennis at English Turn Golf and Country Club for 17 years, native of Stockholm, Sweden and Mary , native of Chicago , Illinois first met back in '97 at Beau Chene Country Club, where Mikael played in a fundraiser tournament " boys hope ", and Mary was a volunteer running the silent auction. They got married in 2001, and live today in Mandeville, Louisiana.

Mary was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. One of the side effects of the cancer has enabled her at times the loss of her mobility in her feet, legs, hands and arms to where she can no longer paint, which is her passion. In late October Mary will start her six months chemo therapy.

The members of English Turn community in New Orleans and friends of the family would like to host a fundraising tennis tournament in honor of Mary and her fight against cancer.

Money raised will go towards supporting the family through this difficult time.
