Community rallies around cancer-striken teen

Jan 9, 2015 1:26 PM by News Staff

Local teen Taylor Andrews was presented with a check Friday from Active NorCal for $1,750 to help cover the costs of his battle with cancer.

Active NorCal's November/December issue featured Andrews on the cover and proceeds from advertising sales were donated to Andrews' family for medical expenses.

Andrews was diagnosed with a rare form of lung cancer in 2013. Since then, his home community of Cottonwood has come together to support the family. They printed and sold "Team Taylor" t-shirts to raise additional funds.

Local businesses in Redding have also chipped in to help Andrews and his family.
