After his closest family members were struck with devastating diseases, Andy suddenly discovered his purpose in life: to take a bite out of disease.
Andy then turned his pain into passion. He started a non-profit, Jodi's Climb for Hope, to raise money for disease research by climbing mountains around the world.
With engaging mountaineering, business, and personal stories, Andy portrays the guiding principles that help others navigate the peaks and valleys of their lives.
