About the Author

Andrew Mizzoni is a childhood cancer survivor and philanthropist who has raised over half a million dollars for pediatric cancer research. Diagnosed with cancer when he was only nine years old, Andrew Mizzoni overcame the illness twice. He bravely accepted his treatments, surgeries, and the loss of his left eye with wisdom and maturity beyond his years. Andrew's story has not gone unnoticed: his story has been published in various publications across North America. He has received many awards and honours for his courage and fundraising efforts, including being named the Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year, Today's Parent magazine's Our Heroes winner, Agent of Change recipient and the recipient of the Next Generation award by the Canadian Italian Business and Professionals Association. To date, Andrew's foundation, the Andrew Mizzoni Cancer Research Fund, has raised approximately $500,000 to support pediatric cancer research at The Hospital for Sick Children. Today Andrew has a successful real estate business and continues to inspire people with his positive energy. When he is not working, Andrew enjoys spending time with his wife, reading, athletics, travelling, movies, and hosting family and friends.
