The Foundation provides a comprehensive support network to families battling cancer. We organize and provide support services ranging from social workers to accountants. We provide financial support for medical treatment related expenses such as rent or travel. We provide undergraduate scholarships to patients and their siblings who, like Sean, live their lives to the fullest despite dealing with a serious chronic illness. We also provide bereavement funds and support in the tragic event that a child does pass away from cancer or its complications.
The Sean Hanna Foundation intends to expand both the depth and range of support we provide families.We will continue to foster our relationship with the Pediatric Oncology Experimental Therapeutics Investigators Consortium (POETIC) and will continue to provide support for pediatric oncology research at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center with the determination that we will one day find a cure and end the suffering forever.
