Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Campaign to begin again!

We are so excited to once again, get the word out about Childhood Cancer Awareness. This year, we will be talking with survivors, siblings, parents, and friends about their personal experiences with pediatric cancer. We will be posting on social media as well as right here, so check back with us in September to learn more.

Lugz Kidz Christmas in July

The Seany Foundation is a proud beneficiary of the 3rd Annual Lugz Kidz Christmas in July on July 27! Check out all the fun in Long Beach, CA. And if you’re a patient from a local hospital, you get in free! Just be sure to RSVP.

Kids Thirsty to Help Other Kids

Twin Cousins Hunter and Daniel Greenspan (6.5 like Noah) joined Noah and Talia (4.5) Baird in Carslbad, CA. They raised money and donated earnings to TSF!

This summer, our good friend Noah Baird, hosted another lemonade stand. And once again, he donated a portion of profits to The Seany Foundation, to help kids who are battling cancer. This time, he enlisted his cousins who were visiting from NY.

Complete with an ipod and speakers, their lemonade stand attracted the attention of drivers-by (mostly due to the wonderful dancing accompanying the music). The Seany Foundation salutes Noah and his growing gang of lemonade sellers for their continued support in the battle against pediatric cancer! Way to go, kiddos!

 

Summer Heats Up!

This summer The Seany Foundation proudly sponsored “Seany’s Corner” at the American Cancer Society’s summer camp program known as Camp Reach for the Sky. The camp allows children with cancer the chance to be kids – an experience often taken away or put on hold by their disease – and gives them a fun summer camping adventure while under medical supervision.

“Seany’s Corner” offered a refuge for kids who preferred to participate in more low-key or less physically demanding outdoor activities, providing numerous arts and crafts projects. On July 4, Seany Co-founder Amy Robins and Board Member Amy Schneider visited camp. Here are a few photos of some of the happy campers:

Temple Solel Trikes Against Cancer

On Wednesday, May 16, preschoolers at Temple Solel Early Childhood Center jumped on their tricycles and did laps to help fight childhood cancer! The Trike-a-Thon donated proceeds to The Seany Foundation. The tikes, in turn, learned about Mitzvahs and helping others in need. Thanks, Temple Solel students and teachers, for riding to help end pediatric cancer! Check out the next generation of do-gooders in action:

Tykes on Trikes for TSF

The Seany Foundation is very fortunate to have such supportive friends at Temple Solel Early Childhood Center! On May 16, the ECC will host a Trike-a-thon to benefit TSF’s pediatric cancer research and patient care projects. Thank you, children and teachers at Temple Solel ECC for your generosity and for making a difference in the lives of children battling cancer!

Art from the Heart Helps Heal

On September 20, over 40 works of art created by young cancer patients and their siblings brightened the halls of the Acute Care Pavilion at Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego as part of the 2011 Art from the Heart Exhibit, sponsored by The Seany Foundation.

Merit Award and Judges' Choice Recipients

Artists, ranging in ages from 1-20, wowed the crowd and judges with their creativity and talent. A public event that began in 2005, the Art from the Heart Exhibit gives patients being treated on the Hematology/Oncology unit at Rady Children’s Hospital and their siblings an opportunity to express themselves through art for both fun and recognition. As such, each participant walked away with a ribbon for their unique contribution. Ribbon categories included Judges’ Choice, Merit Award, or Honorable Mention. Many of the proud artists’ family and friends were also in attendance to show support for their loved ones.

Guests View the Artwork

The exhibition was followed by a celebratory reception that included refreshments and snacks and a saxophonist who helped set the mood for the evening’s festivities.

The Seany Foundation proudly salutes the talented young artists of Rady Children’s Hospital and thanks Dr. Deborah Schiff for organizing this wonderful event. The Seany Foundation would also like to thank its donors for making this and other programs that make a real difference in the lives of kids battling cancer possible.

Thanks to Temple Solel Early Childhood Center

A very special thanks goes out Noah Baird and The Kadima Bet class of 2011 from Temple Solel Early Childhood Center. They spent some time thinking about what they wanted to do with the Tzedakah they earned this year.

After several suggestions, they agreed that giving their class Tzedakah to The Seany Foundation would make everyone happy and proud. In addition, Kadima Alef and Kadima Bet joined Noah and his Mom, Becky, to host a lemonade stand to raise funds for pediatric cancer research. Thank you to Becky Cherlin Baird, Sharon Segal, and the teachers and kids of Temple Solel’s ECC Kadima, Class of 2011, for making a difference! You’re off to a bright start!
