about

The Seany Foundation exists to improve the lives of children, teens and young adults affected by cancer through programs that bring hope and happiness to kids with cancer and their families.

It all began with a kid with cancer.

 

Sean Lewis Robins was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma, a rare childhood cancer affecting soft tissue and bone, in 2003. Inspired by his own battle with the disease, he helped found The Seany Foundation to advocate for other children coping with cancer. After Sean’s death on November 17, 2006, the Robins family began working on making Sean’s dream a reality. To date, The Seany Foundation has raised over 8 million dollars in the fight against childhood cancer. Today, The Seany Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization led by the Robins family with support from our generous donors and volunteers to carry on Sean’s legacy.

Today, The Seany Foundation’s main goal is to bring relief and happiness to kids struggling with cancer and to their families, particularly siblings. Cancer is a family disease, and it affects everyone who loves the person with the disease. (ncbi.nih.gov). The Seany Foundation funds to support the long-term emotional health of kids with cancer and their families.
