The Seany Foundation is not only a terrific organization, it is also one that is sorely needed since it addresses pediatric cancer, a cause which has often been overlooked. I think it's great that Seany Foundation is doing so much to help children with cancer be exactly what they should be...happy children!

I have always had a really fun time at the Seany Foundation fund raising events. It is a great way to meet new people. Their last two events, the poker night and the pub crawl, were two activities I would have done on my own. Therefore, I was more than happy to participate and help raise money for a good cause.

The Casino/Poker night was fantastic! It was a lot of fun and something different for a fundraiser. It was definitely a new way to try and raise money for charity and I think they should do it again.

As a former non-profit event director, I was genuinely impressed with the success of the Charity Casino Night. I commend the Seany Foundation for the huge success of this event, especially given the size of the organization. The entire evening was well organized and very well executed. This was my first experience with a Seany Foundation event, but if this is any indication of how the organization delivers special events, I will be sure to attend in the future. I had a wonderful time! Thank you for an entertaining and a wonderfully enjoyable night!

The Seany Foundation's volunteers work together very well. I observed them at the Hairless Potter movie night and they all seemed very happy to be working together for their cause.

The Seany Foundation gives back to their participants as much as it gives back to the cancer patients it provides for.

A great organization requires good goals and good people--The Seany Foundation has both. A diverse, passionate, and generous group of people, the Seany Foundation definitely deserves the 2009 Cancer Fighters Award as they will continue to selflessly give back to the community!

I think it's great what Seany is doing. The staff is bright, motivated and earnest in their efforts. Their desire to reach out in every way - notably their music label - is inspiring.

The Seany Foundation is great because they strive to make the lives of children with cancer better. Many childhood diseases get left behind with little to no research funding because they "don't make any money for Big Pharma." The children are our future and we can't put a price tag on that. The Seany Foundation has done so much to make the lives of these young children better, including a wide range of different types of events, donating to build a teen center, and research funding. They do it all! You gotta support the Seany Foundation!

I have attended a couple of the Seany Foundation events now and every time, I truly feel like I have contributed to an amazing cause. I am moved by every story I hear from Mitch and Amy regarding Sean's strengths and struggles. It brings tears to my eyes and makes me want to do more in making contributions to such an important cause like pediatric cancer. The Seany Foundation truly makes you see that life is beautiful and precious. I look forward to the future of the Seany Foundation. I am happy to be a part of it in any way I can.

The Seany Foundation has developed fantastic ideas for raising money for a worthy cause. I attended their Cut-A-Thon at Evolve Salon in January and got a great haircut at a well-organized event. The mission behind Seany Records -- to support and foster the creative development of artists while donating a portion of its profits to the Seany Foundation -- is innovative and visionary. I look forward to all that this organization will achieve in the future!

This foundation has brought nothing but positive awareness to an ongoing disease. It is so important that people understand Seany's story, not only to help stop the brutal battle of various sarcomas, but other cancers as well. The creation of this organization has allowed Sean’s name and life to live on. I feel very fortunate to be apart of such a wonderful organization, because it has made a connection to so many people, especially those close in age to Sean. For Sean’s peers to hear his story and become apart of his life through this foundation, it has opened endless awareness and motivation for the fight against cancer.
