The Andrew Weishar Foundation (AWF) was created to honor the memory of Andrew Weishar and his legacy of helping others to live with faith, courage, and strength.
Our mission is to provide immediate resources to families with adolescents or young adults stricken with cancer. We will provide financial assistance to these families in need and dedicate ourselves to these acts of kindness and generosity.
Andrew and the Weishar family learned firsthand what many survivors have learned when coping with cancer:
Prior to Andrew’s passing, in October of 2012, he asked his younger brother Dan to “pay forward” the acts of kindness and generosity he received. In early 2013, AWF was created to honor Andrew’s request of paying it forward, specifically by: providing acts of kindness and generosity; easing the financial burden; and providing a temporary escape.
