Seany’s Camp Reach for the Sky is where it all started, and its spirit inspires everything we do. Today, The Seany Foundation hosts a variety of programs and projects for cancer-affected children of all ages, as well as siblings, parents and families.
The annual Art from the Heart event invites hundreds of children with cancer and their siblings to express themselves artistically and see their creativity recognized by their peers, family and community. Each year, participating kids from across Southern California submit original works of art for a special exhibit and reception held at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, CA. Funded in part by The Seany Foundation, this wonderful program showcases the creative talents of children affected by cancer to raise awareness about the power of art in healthcare.VIEW EVENT CALENDAR
The Rhythm of Hope music program unites music lovers affected by cancer with professional musicians or celebrity artists. Through a collaborative effort between the Lollipop Theater Network and The Seany Foundation, patients at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and LAC+USC Medical Center can team up with volunteer musicians to play and create original music. The groups are intimate and occur throughout the year. The music delivers hope and happiness.VIEW EVENT CALENDAR

The Seany Teen Room was the first-ever patient care project funded by The Seany Foundation. Created just for teens at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, CA, the doors officially opened in January 2011 with the help of a ,000 grant from Supervisor Ron Roberts and the County of San Diego, as well as generous electronics donations from Best Buy.
