In Honor Of Andrew Weishar

Sparked By A Selfless Wish

Before he passed in October of 2012, Andrew asked his younger brother Dan to "pay forward" the acts of kindness and generosity shown to their family. In early 2013, Weish4Ever was created to honor this selfless request, specifically by: easing the financial burden, bringing joy, and ensuring patients and their families know they're not alone in this fight against cancer.

Who We Support

A Resource To An Under-Served Population

Adolescents and young adults ("AYAs") with cancer face unique challenges related to their age and stage of life, including fertility, relationships, financial stability, and career planning.
Cancer is expensive! The financial burden can be particularly overwhelming for young adults facing additional expenses like student loans, rent, and child-rearing while also dealing with the costs of treatment and recovery.
A cancer diagnosis at a young age can be isolating and disrupt the forward momentum of education, career, and personal growth, leaving AYAs feeling disconnected from their peers.
The medical community continues to navigate the challenge of how to fully support and care for AYAs with cancer, who often face long-term physical and emotional challenges that affect quality of life.
