Andrew “Drew” John Ballinger died peacefully in his parent’s arms at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in July of 2013. In Drew’s 7 ½ months of life, he touched more lives than most people do in their entire lifetime. The name Andrew means “warrior” and that he was. Drew was a fighter and he won many battles against some very difficult odds. This Fund, named to celebrate Drew’s short life, is designed to provide support to families in need that come to the Junior League Fetal Center at Vanderbilt both before and after their babies are born.
