Andy Hoffman, known for helping raise millions for childhood brain cancer research, passed away from cancer on Monday.
He was 42.
Andy Hoffman , co-founder of the "Team Jack Foundation," was diagnosed with Glioblastoma in July and had been undergoing treatment.
He dedicated his life to helping find a cure for childhood brain cancer research after his son Jack was diagnosed with brain cancer at age five.
That set up a grand statement of hope on the Big Red stage of Nebraska Memorial Stadium: the child made international news with his unforgettable run with Husker gridders at a NU Spring Game.
The moment garnered an "Espy" award.
