Amandalee Weiss’ story is one of a young woman’s courage and determination to help others survive cancer. Before her death from osteogenic sarcoma, a rare bone disease, she became the conceptual founder of the Amandalee Fund. This fund raises money for sarcoma research and ultimately benefits research for other cancers. The Amandalee Fund continues to be a driving force behind finding a cure for cancers that affect adolescents.
