The Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope (AAFH) delivered a clarinet to 15-year-old Hannah at Edward Hospital in Naperville, IL on Wednesday, January 31, 2018. Hannah is a sophomore at Neuqua Valley High School in Naperville, IL. She lives in Bolingbrook with her family. Hannah was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in July 2016 and is being treated at University of Chicago & Comer Children’s Hospital. She also is receiving chemo as an outpatient at the Edward Cancer Center.
Hannah is very interested in music, animals and space. She plays percussion at Neuqua Valley High School and is now interested in learning how to play the clarinet. She also likes to hang out with her friends, read, write, and play video games.
We caught Hannah just before she was going to receive her chemo treatment. Our volunteers who delivered the clarinet to Hannah included Randy Zbasnik, Toni Pedroza and Alyssa's mom & President of AAFH-Yoli Alvin. We are happy to share Alyssa’s love for music through these gift requests.
