The Seany Foundation
May 22, 2013

Besides being a donor, I've had the opportunity to volunteer a couple of times at Seany Foundation auctions. The generosity of the donors, the commitment of the foundation members and the tangible good it does in helping fund pediatric cancer research made my volunteer experiences at these auctions truly memorable.

The Seany Foundation
February 29, 2012

I've not only volunteered, I've donated to The Seany Foundation from the very first days of this organization. I was close to Sean Robins, the young man for whom this Foundation was named and the inspiration for it's existence. The Seany Foundation supports the noble goal of eliminating pediatric cancers while, at the same time, seeking to provide pediatric cancer patients with the same social opportunities as their peers. The organization has provided patients, their family and their friends with a chance to enjoy movies, parties and proms, as well as a safe, secure and accessible "teen room" where these young people can find peace and comfort, if only for a little while, in between their medical treatment and chemo regimens. I cannot think of a greater purpose for any organization and The Seany Foundation is to be highly commended for its selfless service to so many in need.

The Seany Foundation
August 5, 2009

I knew Sean Robins and I know Mitch and Amy Robins. They have transformed their devastation at losing their beloved Seany into a crusade to eliminate the horror that is pediatric cancer so that no other family will ever again have to experience what they (and too many before them) have experienced. The Seany Foundation, since its inception, has raised awareness of the existence of pediatric cancers, raised money to fund research toward eradication of the disease and raised the hopes and spirits of so many young people now bravely fighting against their condition. The Seany Foundation is all about hope and, more importantly, perseverance--moving forward one step at a time, one day at a time--until the cure can be found.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the creation of the research chair at UCSD Medical Center, the Seany Robins Teen Room at Children's Hospital, sponsorship of the prom for cancer patients and so many other ways.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the selflessness of the Foundation and its founders, Mitch and Amy Robins and also the commitment of the Foundation's volunteers, donors, and others associated with the fight against pediatric cancer.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

fantastic and awe inspiring. People of all ages, backgrounds and experiences have come together in force to participate in such a worthy cause.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make a serious run at funding the research necessary to finding a cure for pediatric cancers.
