Andrew J. Somora Foundation

The AJS Foundation was formed in December 2011 to honor the memory of our Friend, Andrew J. Somora, a 38-year-old husband and father who lost a 15-month battle with Stage IV colon cancer. The hope is that the AJS Foundation can keep his spirit alive for all who loved him, and to help other families as they fight cancer and hopefully prevent another family from losing someone they love to cancer. The AJS Foundation will provide financial assistance to persons in financial need who are battling colon cancer, as well as their family members, who are receiving treatment in the Kansas City area. AJSF will also spread awareness of the causes of colon cancer and of the preventative and screening measures that can be taken to prevent the disease and/or diagnose it at an early stage.
