A shock to our Freestyle Family

My longtime photographer, teammate, and friend, Andrea Cardin was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia a couple of weeks ago (actually on Hockey Fights Cancer Night). She was 8 1/2 months pregnant. Baby James was born safe and healthy. Yesterday Andrea began her difficulty road to treatments and eventual bone marrow transplant.

Our Freestyle team would like to help Andrea and her family throughout the next year, so we will be auctioning Framed Prints of our work to support our efforts. And I will be hosting a number of Poker Tournaments as well (my nickname for her is “Cards”. And she’s quite the shark).

In the meantime, please see this link from Andrea’s cousins to read more about her story and help a little now if you can.
