Our family has created the Mike Weber Sr. Memorial Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, devoted to raising money in support of the universal battle against cancer.
PMP Pals: a volunteer-run organization that supports patients and caregivers fighting rare Appendix Cancer, also known as Pseudomyxoma Peritonei or “PMP”. Throughout Mike’s 3-year battle, PMP Pals provided a remarkable support system that offered guidance on surgeons/doctors (as this is a very rare type of cancer), tailored dietary recommendations (crucial for patients with compromised digestive tracts), and amazing moral support by coordinating interactions with other PMP patients, caregivers, and survivors. During a dark and painful time period, PMP Pals provided Mike and his family with added hope and encouragement, and have continued to do so since his passing.
We are pleased to announce that we have donated over $20,000 to PMP Pals to date.
Appendix Cancer Pseudomyxoma Peritonei Research Foundation (ACPMP): an IRS-designated 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to funding research to discover a cure for Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP), Appendix Cancer, and related Peritoneal Surface Malignancies (PSM). Additionally, ACMP provides funding to educational programs that teach physicians and patients about these rare diseases.
We are pleased to announce that we have donated over $20,000 to ACPMP Research Foundation to date. See here how this grant has been put to use.
The Mike Weber Sr. Scholarship Fund: an annual college scholarship awarded to deserving seniors at River Dell Regional High School in Oradell, NJ, where Mike adored watching his three children, Michael, Casey, and Maxwell, graduate and enjoy multiple athletic and academic achievements throughout their high school careers. To be considered for the scholarship, students must have lettered in a varsity sport at River Dell, and prepare a 500-word essay on how they have overcome adversity in their life.
We are pleased to announce that in 2018, we donated $12,000 across 12 River Dell High School seniors. This year, we will be donating $10,000 across 10 RDHS Class of 2019 seniors. This years recipients will be announced by our family at the River Dell Senior Awards/Scholarships Ceremony in June of 2019.
