The surgeries were successful and the now four year-old Andrew is happy and healthy, a symbol of Maria Fareri Children's Hospital's world-class pediatric cardiac surgery program and Grand Marshal of the 2010 Go the Distance event, a walk and family fun day supporting the hospital that saved Andrew's life.

Andrew's official appointment as Grand Marshal will occur at the Go the Distance Kickoff Breakfast Saturday, February 6, at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital in Valhalla, New York.  Andrew will be joined by his parents, Megan and Brian Busenbark, who reside with Andrew in New Fairfield, Connecticut.  Mike Bennett of 100.7 WHUD-FM's morning team of "Mike & Kacey" will host the breakfast.
