Andrea dreamed of going to college from the time she was a little girl and she was determined not to let RSD interfer with that dream. While in college Andrea and a group of friends began Fighting4us to help others who suffer from the illness. Her final work for college was to research and apply for federal tax exemption status for Fighting4us, she succeded with the first applicaton. Andrea graduated from Hood College in 2005.
