Help for Hana on her Cancer Journey

Hana has had her leg amputated because of cancer. The prosthetic leg that was fitted for her in her home country of Egypt is too heavy and cumbersome and cannot be customized for her use. Hana has always dreamed of going to college in America. She needs travel expenses paid for her and a caregiver. She needs funds to visit a hospital and have her prosthetic leg fitted. We will take her to visit colleges and help her apply. 

A prosthetic leg would greatly improve the quality of Hana's life and change the entire dynamic of her family. She would be able to care for herself, relieving her family of her constant care. She would be so grateful for this chance to fulfill her dreams.

With the right support Hana can be sent to college where she will study health and science and help cure the world of cancer so no child will have to suffer from painful treatments as she did at the age of nine years old.
