Texas PT Named Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Man of the Year

On Friday, June 17, 2022, Andrew Morgan, a Texas Physical Therapist, 23 year APTA/TPTA member, and UT Health Alumnus, was named the 2022 South Central Texas Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Man of Year. The LLS names a Man and Woman of the Year following a 10-week fundraising campaign during which candidates build, develop, and lead teams through various fundraising events. Andrew’s team, the Cancer Destroying Crew (CDC for short), raised $146,654 during the 10-week event. Andrew has previously raised money for LLS through its endurance training program, Team in Training. Andrew has been involved with LLS for 10-years following the 2012 death of his close friend and physical therapist assistant Bobby Fernandez. Bobby was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and died 9-days following his diagnosis.
