About the Roslyn I. Weiser Memorial Foundation
Board Certified Dr.’s Jonathan R. Weiser, M.D. and Craig J. Uecker, M.D. of Physician’s Institute launched the Roslyn L. Weiser Memorial Foundation to honor their mothers who both were diagnosed with breast cancer. Roslyn L. Weiser, the late mother of Dr. Jonathan Weiser of Physician’s Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery, Inc., was a two time survivor of breast cancer. Her journey can be found at www.WeiserFoundation.org.
The Foundation’s primary mission is to educate, support, and comfort women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and who have endured a mastectomy of the breast(s). The Foundation also provides finances for the education and emotional support needed to restore lost dignity to those whose lives have been affected by breast-related issues.
