The WES Foundation for Leukemia Research started in 2005 after Wes Smith passed away from his battle with leukemia at the young age of 21.
WES exists with the mission and purpose to invest in the lives of others by pursuing leukemia research with the hope for the day when everyone survives. Through our Medical Advisory Board WES is able to invest in new, innovative research by giving $50,000 incubator grants to researchers around the country.
We hope that this support will help find a cure so that future generations won’t have to fight this disease.
