Every year, the Foundation donates its proceeds to those organizations that help relieve the suffering of children with cancer, fund research into a cure for A-T, and those organizations that made a difference in Bayan’s life. We do this in commemoration of Bayan’s birthday, which is December 30.
This year we decided Bayan would have loved to donate to Make-A-Wish, who gave her the amazing gift of a custom-made bike. She was beyond excited when she received this gift from a donor through Make-A-Wish. She was able to ride a bike for the first time on her own, and this meant the world to her.
Also, the foundation will give a gift to St. Jude’s Research Hospital. Through its research, St. Jude’s has helped countless kids with their cancer-fighting protocols, one of whom was Bayan. And, of course, we cannot forget the A-T Children’s Project who strive everyday towards finding a cure for this debilitating disease, which made Bayan’s life so difficult. They also offer moral support and resources to help families cope, and they helped our family tremendously.
It’s not too late to help paint the world pink for Bayan! Please give generously to the Bayan Hassaballa Foundation today.
