Andrews to Assist Children’s Hospital

Jessica Andrews will serve as celebrity spokesperson for Le Bonheur Children’s Medical Center in Memphis. The 18-year-old singer has firsthand experience with the hospital and neurosurgeon Dr. Michael Muhlbauer. Born with a bone through her spinal cord, Andrews entered the hospital at age 7 for surgery to correct the potentially debilitating deformity. At the time, Andrews was only the fourth person in the United States to undergo the procedure. As part of her work as celebrity spokesperson, Andrews will visit patients and participate in hospital activities when she’s in the Memphis area. 08/19/02
