Amber has been a board member since 2011. Amber is a biology professor at Lone Star College-Kingwood and has a M.Ed. from Sam Houston State University. Her extensive background in molecular and cellular biology allows Amber to appreciate the details of the cancer research process.
She and her husband Drew lost their first-born son Andrew Wade Heron to medulloblastoma in 2007. They founded a memorial nursing endowment in his name at Lone Star College-Kingwood and feel so honored that Addi’s Faith Foundation named a memorial scholarship for a brain tumor survivor in his name as well.
Amber loves playing tennis and going to the theatre. Most importantly, Amber is “the best mom ever” to her two elementary aged children, Abbey and Colton. (She has the t-shirt to prove it!)
