The Hannah Chamberlain Foundation

 

The Hannah Chamberlain Foundation was nominated by Kayleigh Chamberlain, Intermediate CAD Technician at TNG. The charity is especially important to Kayleigh as Hannah was her younger sister.

 

Hannah Chamberlain

Hannah was a charming and charismatic daughter, sister and friend, whose lively cheerful personality radiated warmth wherever she went. Her love for athletics led her to train for a career in the fitness industry. When she was seventeen, she was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a rare and aggressive form of bone cancer in her knee. The treatment for this was very intensive chemotherapy and surgery to remove the tumour and effected bone around her knee.

After an initial period of remission, during which time she qualified as a fitness instructor, the cancer reappeared in her lungs and she had to undergo a second round of treatment which unfortunately was not successful. Hannah passed away in November 2009 at home, aged just 20.

 

The Hannah Chamberlain Foundation

During her illness, Hannah made it clear that she would like to help other young people in the same position.

The Hannah Chamberlain Foundation has been set up to raise funds in Hannah’s memory. These funds help other people, aged between 17 and 25, who face long periods of treatment at Southampton General Hospital. The Foundation awards small grants to patients to spend as they please on something that will help them through their course of treatment.

To date, the The Hannah Chamberlain Foundation has raised over £60,000 and given out more than 150 grants.
