Our Mission is to Give Hope, Save Lives and Reduce Suffering
The WeHeal Foundation Inc, previously known as the Eric Drew Foundation, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation formed in 2003 initially to save the life of Eric Drew and to advocate for adult acute leukemia patients. The mission evolved with demand, and the foundation soon altered its focus to advocate patient strategy for all disease types. For 15 years we have helped thousands of patients navigate their healthcare, find elusive treatments, and overcome life threatening and debilitating illnesses. Through this work, the urgent need for a global online CrowdHealing platform became clear, and in April 2016 the vision finally became a reality with the launch of WeHeal.org.
Collaborative patient centered care is the next evolutionary step in medicine!
The WeHeal Foundation truly believes that by bringing doctors, patients, researchers and advocates together, we can transform medical industry in a very positive way! By empowering patients with knowledge of the most advanced and least-invasive treatments, we will create a demand for the newest most effective treatments and raise the quality of medicine exponentially!
The world is ready for a breakthrough in the way we approach medicine
