Foundation Announces Bayan’s Birthday Gifts for 2015

The Bayan Hassaballa Foundation is very happy to announce Bayan’s Birthday Gifts for 2015!

This year, we have gifted three wonderful organizations that do amazing work for kids with A-T, cancer, and other life-threatening conditions. In addition, each of these organizations touched Bayan’s life in a very positive way. As a result, the Bayan Hassaballa Foundation, on Bayan’s Birthday, is proud to be able to support these exceptional charities with a grant.

The 2015 Bayan’s Birthday Gift Recipients are:

1. A-T Children’s Project

2. Make-A-Wish Foundation of Illinois

3. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

“We are very happy to be able to give something to each of these fine charities,” said Reem Hassaballa, Executive Director of the Foundation.

“The mission of the Bayan Hassaballa Foundation is to ‘Paint the World Pink for Bayan,’ and while we wish the gifts could be bigger, they are still part of the fulfillment of that mission. We also want to deeply thank everyone who generously supported the Bayan Hassaballa Foundation and helped make the giving of these gifts possible.”

Foundation Executive Director Named “Suburban Hero Mom”!

The Bayan Hassaballa Foundation is very proud to announce that Reem Hassaballa, our very own Executive Director, was nominated to be a “Suburban Hero Mom” in Glancer Magazine!



“The death of a child can be an unbelievable challenge, but Reem has chosen to face it with courage and strength for her four other children. Reem’s highest priority is teaching her children the importance of giving back, and it is the very reason she established the Bayan Hassaballa Foundation in 2009.”

“Rising up and continuing to strive to make the world a little better helps me grieve and makes me realize that my angel is living on in my heart,” Reem says.  “Creating this Foundation helped me bring out this inherent love that I have for philanthropy.”

Way to go, Reem!
