The Mike Weber Sr. Memorial Foundation
494 Demarest Avenue
Oradell, NJ 07649
Charitable contributions are allocated amongst the following organizations:
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 $50,000 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 $30,000 to ACPMP Research Foundation to date. Click here to see how these grants have 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 we have awarded $40,000 in college scholarships to 40 recipients to date.
Heat It to Beat It: Armando Sardi, M.D., Director of The Institute for Cancer Care at Mercy, and his colleagues, are among a finite group of surgical oncologists in the United States considered experts in the treatment of peritoneal carcinomatosis using heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy, known as HIPEC.
For many patients, this surgery is the only chance of long-term survival; however, there is a lack of awareness about the disease and patients are often misdiagnosed.
Since its inception in 2010, Heat It To Beat It has raised over $1.4M to support research led by Dr. Sardi.
When you support Heat It To Beat It you become part of the movement to advance research and awareness of the life-saving HIPEC treatment for peritoneal carcinomatosis. We are pleased to announce that we have donated over $40,000 to Heat It To Beat It to date.
