Andrew is 18 years old and was born with cerebral palsy. He uses a power wheelchair because of the physical effect his illness has on his mobility. Because of this physical disability, Andrew has minimal interaction with other people, including his peers, and doesn't have many friends away from school. His hobbies include watching football, singing and singing lessons, technology and the Starbright World online community.
When Andrew joined Starbright World in July 2013 it gave him an opportunity to meet new people, interact with other teens affected by serious illness, get great ideas and hear interesting stories. Andrew says, "Starbright World is really awesome and I am so glad I became a member."
