The Jan Weimer Fund

 

 

Jan Weimer died on April 13, 2007 after a mostly confidential fifteen year battle with breast cancer. She left behind a legacy of creativity, devotion and selfless friendship. She mentored many women in their careers and supported many causes. As she saw her own end coming, she had a vision to help women who are suffering from cancer as she did. We had many conversations about our shared estate and vision. Jan wanted to “beat the littlef---ers” that were invading her body. She felt blessed that she could continue her career despite side effects of chemotherapy and afford a natural hair wig that kept her secret almost to the end.

To keep faith with her vision, I have led a group of her friends in organizing a fund raising effort to endow a chair in breast oncology at Stanford Medical School, where we both graduated. Our friend and my medical school classmate, Ron Levy, a major researcher in the field of cancer biology and head of Stanford Oncology, is the perfect steward for the funds raised. Stanford has committed to honor Jan’s wishes and fulfill her vision and I have committed our estate to the project.

Please join me in contributing funds to the Jan Weimer Memorial Fund to endow a research program to support the professorial chair established in her name.

Please dig deep into the pocket book and send donations to:

Stanford Medical School, and in the memo section of the check, write “Jan Weimer Fund”

 

Please send checks to:
