Please help us, the family of Andrew Rodriguez, in bringing him home. We are trying to raise money to help pay for his funeral expense.

On Friday, November 16th, 2012 an angel was sent to heaven his name is Miguel Andres Rodriguez.

Andrew was born on September 29th, 1999. He was a piece of heaven brought to earth. Andrew touched the hearts of anyone he met, especially his nurses at Children's Hospital. He was charming, sweet, and extremely polite.

On November 25th, 2005, when Andrew was 6 (the day after Thanksgiving) he was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor. He was very brave and showed no signs of pain or suffering to please his family. Despite his condition, he would do anything to put a smile on your face. His father, Miguel Rodriguez, became his caregiver. They were inseperable. Andrew's mother, Elsa, provided everything she could to keep her baby happy and comfortable.

Andrew's treatments were getting expensive. So, with the help of "Make A Wish Foundation" Elsa took her family to Texas where she could provide the most for her baby.
Unfortunately, Andrew's condition worsend and chemo was no longer an option. Seven years of wishful thinking had gone by and Andrew continued to struggle in his battle until he took his last breaths on Friday, November 16th, 2012 at 6am.

Andrew will always remain in our hearts and be remembered for his charisma and strong will.
Andrew's best years were here in California where he was surrounded by his four brothers, two sisters, and family who were fortunate enough to share a part of his life.
Please help bring Andrew home to California where a funeral and burial will be arranged so that we, the family, will be closer to him. God bless.
