The mission of The Hailey Bankhead Foundation, INC. is to serve, support and encourage a unique portion of the community, which is affected by childhood cancer. The scope of our clientele is not just children diagnosed with cancer but also their families, friends and their community. Through our foundation, we will be able to address and meet various needs of these individuals and groups, which are many times overlooked. Our motto is, "Together WE are fighting against childhood cancer." Our staff, volunteers and team recognize the special needs and attention required from our clients. "We have been in their shoes, so we can add extra love and support that others cannot."- Heather Bankhead, Founder/Director, The Hailey Bankhead Foundation, INC
The Hailey Bankhead Foundation is an organization founded from one mother’s love for her child facing childhood cancer and a need to find a sense of purpose and a desire to ease the pain and to serve other families facing childhood cancers.
Upon preliminary diagnosis, The Hailey Bankhead Foundation, INC. will offer a personalized care package to VIP families as well as provide guidance to the resources available to make dealing with the diagnosis/transition easier. We will continue our reach supporters by providing online resources, information through social media platforms, monthly newsletters and communications. The Hailey Bankhead Foundation INC’s unique intentions are to continue to keep in close contact and continuing follow up with all our families.
We host social and kid centric events including our annual 5K Walk/Run which is just one of the ways we get the community involved in raising awareness.
The Hailey Bankhead Foundation, INC.’s "A Night Under the Stars" event is to raise money for the foundation to help further the cause of childhood cancer awareness. The monies raised will help fund the annual 5K Walk/Run, purchase hats and gifts and have holiday activities for children admitted to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) at Egleston AFLAC Cancer Center. If needed, we will assist the families of children admitted to CHOA by purchasing food, parking vouchers and toiletries.
