Andy Zweig’s Legacy


Andy and Paul


“While in my 20s I met three guys who became my best pals: Andy, Ken, and Ted. At 6’5″, Andy was a real mountain of a man, my go-to guy for everything. You can imagine what a gut punch it was when I learned that Andy had prostate cancer. Andy died at age 57 from the disease – he had so much more to give, and should have had so much more life to live! Now, my passion is to do anything I can to continue Andy’s legacy and help others from suffering the same fate.”

– Paul Diamond

I thought Andy and I would be friends for life. Prostate Cancer tragically took that away.

Andy may have lost has battle to prostate cancer, but his family and friends aren’t giving up on raising awareness and funds to end the disease. In 2018 his widow, Wendy, along with her two friends Sue and Nancy, hosted the first Annual Ripple Run in Andy’s honor. Hear more of Andy’s story here.

You too can fundraise in honor of someone battling or who has lost their life to prostate cancer; ZERO DIY makes it easy.
