Weish4Ever Press Stories
7-year-old was greeted at daycare by a limousine and Southpaw, the White Sox mascot, to begin fulfillment of his ultimate wish with a one-of-a-kind experience at Guaranteed Rate Field.
Kizer’s involvement in the Weishar Foundation continues. Players around the league expressed the charity important to them on their shoes in games last week in the NFL’s “My Cause, my cleats” program. Kizer’s choice was easy for him.
Debuting in 2013, WeishFest was created to remember Andrew Weishar, a graduate of Oak Forest's St. Damian School and Chicago's Brother Rice High School who died of colorectal cancer in 21. He was only 21.
This is a great event for a great cause. There’s a reason why pro athletes like Sam Acho, Kyle Schwarber, and Mitch Trubisky have been tweeting about #WeishFest.
Earlier this season we shared the story of Notre Dame tight end Nic Weishar. His older brother Andrew lost his battle with cancer when he was just 21 years old. In response, the family created the Andrew Weishar Foundation to honor his dying wish to pay forward the kindness and generosity he and his family received during his battle.
When Notre Dame senior tight end Nic Weishar scored his first career touchdown, he took a piece of his brother with him.
Andrew Weishar's story is not about the day he was diagnosed with colorectal cancer at age 19, nor is it about the day he died nearly three years later.
DeShone Kizer will be sticking out at Thursday’s NFL Draft, as he will be raising awareness for the Andrew Weishar Foundation (Weish 4Ever).
