Fulfilling Andrew's Last Wish

The Andrew Weishar Foundation (AWF) is a volunteer-led, 501(c)3 charitable non-profit organization founded in the south suburbs of Chicago. We are a grass-roots organization created in honor of a young man named Andrew Weishar, who passed of cancer in 2012 at the age of 21. Before he passed, Andrew had one simple and selfless request to his family and that was to “Pay Forward” the kindness and generosity he was shown during that fight. To fulfill his dying wish, we created The Andrew Weishar Foundation (“Weish4Ever”) to bring joy and ease the financial burden felt by families battling cancer.

Granted Over $650,000 To Families Battling Cancer

The mission of the AWF is to provide support and financial relief to families with young adults and adolescents battling cancer. We pride ourselves on making a powerful and immediate impact on the lives of these families facing the most difficult moments of their lives.
