Otey meets her idol, Miss America

Andi Otey was invited by the Children’s Hospital of Richmond to meet her idol Miss America, Camille Schrier last week. Andi was diagnosed with a Wilms tumor last May and had surgery to remove both the tumor and her left kidney. Andi was chosen to represent the month of August in the hospital calendar and informed Miss America that they now both had titles. Miss America is a doctor of pharmacy student at VCU and she and Andi discussed science experiments, becoming a doctor and, of course, tiaras.
