Tyson is so incredibly generous and so supportive of our youth and our town, PLEASE make plans to visit the snow cone stand on Saturday's going to be 83* so please enjoy a snow cone in February for Tatum Elyse Andrés

I opened an account today for her at AMERICAN BANK in Collinsville- it's under FOR THE BENEFIT OF TATUM ANDRES so any donations and monies raised from any fundraisers will go to that account for Tatum and her mom. The final shirt design is finished except for adding the business sponsors on the back! I will have pricing information as well as order information available soon... I'm just waiting for a couple of sponsors logos, so if YOU want to be a sponsor on the shirt please message or text me but make it quick!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who is praying for her and those of you who have offered to help raise funds for her!!! #teamtatum #noonefightsalone #tatumstrong #dobravethings #cancersucks #cardinalnation
