Andy needed 22 units of blood to survive serious injuries after he was hit by a train as a teenager. Although he lost his legs in the accident, his life was saved.
Always active and athletic, Andy dedicated himself to rehabilitation and recovery, eventually joining the Team USA sled hockey team and serving as team Captain in the Paralympic Games.
He’s now a realtor in Iowa and raising two beautiful children with his wife, Katie.
