Celebrating the Foundation: We Build Courage

posted on Thursday, May 2, 2019

We all imagine what childhood should be. That childhood is forever changed for hundreds of Iowa families every year when they receive the devastating diagnosis of childhood cancer. It’s not fair. These innocent children didn’t do anything wrong and life for them and their families will never be the same.

To these children and families, Deb and Jeff Hansen want to provide a moment of joy. A moment to forget the devastating news and provide an opportunity for what childhood should be—even if for a brief moment.

Which is why children diagnosed with cancer now have a loveable, huggable friend by their side, thanks to the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation and Iowa Select Farms. Louie Lionheart ™ has been introduced to the Foundation-funded My Journey Series™— a Children’s Cancer Connection program that provides resources and support to Iowa families affected by childhood cancer.

Currently 590 Iowa families participate in the My Journey Series, with 82 families added in 2018. The My Journey Series is provided to families at no cost thanks to the generosity of the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation.
