About the Hannah Storm Foundation
The Hannah Storm Foundation (HSF) was created in 2008 to raise awareness, fund treatment and provide educational information for children suffering from debilitating and disfiguring vascular birthmarks. Hannah's passion stems from being born with a port wine stain birthmark underneath her left eye. In 2011 HSF has funded multiple surgeries for children in the U.S. and Berlin, Germany. Past activities held by HSF include annual Advocacy Day events for families and patients: 2009 Advocacy Day was held at the Brookings Institute in Washington, D.C. and the 2010 Advocacy Day was held at Beth Israel Hospital in New York City; multiple fundraisers including a celebrity evening in 2010 held at Morton’s in Stamford, CT, and working with the Waner Children’s Vascular Anomaly Foundation to affect CPT codes used by insurance companies. HSF also funds the Hannah Storm Journalism Internship at Notre Dame. It was started in 2006 as an opportunity for current Notre Dame undergraduate students to gain practical experience while working in the Alumni Association's Communications and Marketing department.
