Hana’s Hope for Lymphoma Cure Advances
About Hana’s Hope:
Hana El Sawy passed away at age 60 on Sunday, June 24, in the ICU at the UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica, California due to aggressive lymphoma. She had been diagnosed with Stage IV non-Hodgkin’s T-Cell lymphoma in March. After four chemotherapy cycles, the treatment was unfortunately deemed unsuccessful. She was hopeful that she could start a clinical trial, but the cancer took over before she had the chance.
Hana’s Hope is meant to both build on Hana’s generosity and help find a cure for the disease that took her life too soon. We have set an ambitious target of $100,000, but no amount is too small to make a difference. Thank you for your support.
Hana was born in Cairo, Egypt, but moved to the US nearly 40 years ago as a newlywed. She was a wonderful, beloved wife to Omar; dedicated mother to Nada, Hassan, and Kareem; and affectionate "Nana Hana" to her four grandchildren. She was a caring, professional real estate broker based in Manhattan Beach, California for three decades, working tirelessly and passionately to find many families and individuals their perfect homes in which to build their lives.
Among her talents were building and remodeling houses, cooking, gardening, knitting, and hosting fabulous social gatherings from fireworks parties to engagement celebrations. She had a vibrancy and energy that filled any room, and most of all: she got things done. She was also very generous and charitable, whether it be for local causes or people in need in Egypt. We trust that her enduring radiance and drive will permeate through Hana’s Hope and help advance lymphoma cures.
