Andrew was diagnosed with FOP at the age of 21 in 2008. He has been involved with the IFOPA ever since, and joined the board in 2016.
He uses his experience with design, particularly web design, to help inform and educate about FOP.
Andrew’s job consists of performing health screenings for state and corporate insurance purposes. He travels with a team to check the cholesterol/blood sugar, BMI, and blood pressure of employees and provide medical advice. He spends a lot of his spare time volunteering at his church, assisting with audio/visual needs at services and keeping the website up-to-date.
“My one hope for the IFOPA community is that there will be a cure one day,” Andrew said. “I will do whatever I can to help make it a reality.”
