Along with many of his teammates, Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo became a favorite place to visit for Andra.  Throughout the months of May, June and July, Bills players hosted a Cinco-de-Mayo party, Garden Stone Decorating parties and a Christmas in July party in the oncology and surgical floor playrooms.  Players not only participated in arts and crafts, they also visited with patients and their families, signed autographs and posed for pictures.
