Andrew Woodard

This is my son Andrew who passed away on 2/15/22 at the age of 32. He is the oldest of my 4 children. He has one sister and two brothers. He is also the father of two young girls, ages 12 and 9. Andrew’s father passed away from lung cancer in 8/2020. For the past 15 years, Andrew has been battling drug addiction. He was such a smart, respectful, funny kid! He had just completed a drug rehab program in January. We were all so happy and proud of him, though we knew it was just the beginning of a long journey. On 2/11, my birthday, I received a call from the ER of a local hospital, stating that Andrew had been found unresponsive. After 3 shocks, and 45 minutes of cpr, they got a heartbeat back. They wouldn’t give up on my son. When we got to the hospital, he was on a ventilator. Two days later, he was pronounced brain dead due to cardiac arrest. We knew he was in favor of organ donation, so on 2/15, he saved 4 people with his donations, one of whom, was an 11 year old boy, who received his left kidney. His right kidney went to a 55 year old man. A 66 year old man received his liver, and a 51 year old man received his heart. We are waiting on an official cause of death, due to the fact that there were no drugs found in his system!!! There was K2 and a pipe near him. K2 is “not a drug” that is detectable. I call it the “sneaky, silent killer.” I believe that killed him. I will not rest until I have brought light to this awful “drug” that is sold right in the little corner stores in the city. Forever heartbroken 💔😭. Andrew 32 forever
