The Hannah Storm Foundation engages in a results-based giving approach. We provide funding for the following: costs associated with surgeries for children suffering from vascular birthmarks; construction of sports facilities in impoverished areas; and journalism internships. Hannah Storm Journalism Internship at the University Every year, an estimated 40,000 children are born with a vascular birthmark that requires the attention of a specialist. Birthmarks may be indicative of serious medical conditions; they can also be disfiguring and debilitating. Born with a “port wine stain” birthmark under her left eye, Hannah understands firsthand how the pain of birthmarks can also be emotional as well as physical. The Hannah Storm Foundation works directly with surgeons such as Dr. Milton Waner, Co- Director of the Vascular and Birthmarks Institute of New York at Roosevelt Hospital, to provide surgeries for children in need.
