Andrea Urbon (May 6, 1946 - October 22, 2023)
It is with heavy hearts we announce the death of our beloved Andrea Urbon. A founding member of Thursday's Child, Inc., she served on its Board of Directors for 38 years, leaving us just last year to move to the Twin Cities where she could be closer to her children. We join her family in mourning the loss of a beautiful, vibrant soul, who lit up every room she entered. We will miss her forever.
Thursday's Child® makes wishes come true for seriously ill children and young adults living within and/or treated within southwest and south central Wisconsin.
A child's dreams are endless and Thursday's Child® believes in the importance of those dreams. Since 1984, the Foundation has made sure that children who face difficult illnesses get a chance to realize a special dream, a family trip to Disney World, a computer to help with school work, meeting an inspiring celebrity, or another wish that is as individual as each dreamer.
Thursday's Child® was created and is sustained by people who understand the importance of a child's dream. Thursday's Child® works with area pediatric specialists, social workers and members of the community as well as the children's friends and families to make those dreams come true.
