The Sean Hanna Foundation is a public charity whose aim is to ease the burdens of patients suffering from childhood cancers and their families in honor of the life of its namesake, Sean Hanna.
The Foundation provides funds for medical treatment related expenses, such as travel and counseling services. We also provide bereavement funds and support in the tragic event that a child does pass away from cancer or its complications. In addition, the Foundation provides undergraduate scholarships to patients and their siblings who, like Sean, live their lives to the fullest despite dealing with a serious chronic illness.
The Sean Hanna Foundation intends to expand its scope internationally and this year will begin providing seed funding 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.
