Andy Savage died from stomach cancer in March 2019 at the age of 38. Andy was a quiet force who lived life to its fullest. He was athletic, loved to travel, and had a wonderment for adventure and nature. He was the happiest in front of a campfire or going on a hike with his family. Andy was curious and pursued a variety of interests, from fixing up vintage motorcycles to running road races to mixing electronic music at Boston-area venues. More than anything, he loved his family and was committed to making lasting memories with his wife and two young children.
Following his diagnosis, Andy savagely fought to overcome this terrible disease. He took advantage of any opportunity to help others better understand the needs of someone with a life-threatening illness. Andy provided whatever samples were necessary for research. He also met with a classroom of medical students to discuss his journey and experiences. Additionally, he participated in and later volunteered for the LIVESTRONG program at the YMCA to help others regain their strength after cancer treatment.
