It is with great sadness that we share the loss of one of CCC’s most beloved family members, Andrew Money. Andrew was a CCC board member, wheel student, IT super hero, colleague and friend. We will miss his kind heart and gentle spirit, his humor and grace, his generosity and ready willingness to reach out, step in, and step up whenever called. He was—“Awesomesauce” and we will all miss him dearly.

Meow, my friend.
