Andy is 16 years old and was born with cerebral palsy. After more than 13 operations, he now has the ability to stand for brief periods of time. Andy wants to be a motivational speaker. Before participating in Project GAIN, Andy just "watched TV" and not much else. Shriner's Hospital referred Andy to the program. Andy and his mother and father were avid participants in the lessons. They all play golf together now for the first time. More importantly, Andy has gained clear increases in his confidence. He has been invited to speak at several gatherings, including to his high school football team! Andy and his family also volunteered as mentors for others in the summer session. Andy's father chaired the Johnny Miller Champions Challenge putting event that raised $1,200 for the program.
