Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer
The Austin Hatcher Foundation Provides Neurocognitive Testing to Pediatric Cancer Population of East Tennessee
The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer has provided free psycho-oncology services and programs for pediatric cancer patients and their families in East Tennessee for over eleven years. Partnering with East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, we identified the need for neurological assessments for pediatric cancer patients and their siblings. As The Austin Hatcher Foundation has fostered its relationship with East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, we continue to provide neurocognitive testing for their pediatric cancer patients and their siblings by a qualified pediatric psychologist. Our goal is to help optimize recovery through academic planning, advocacy, and follow-up counseling in order to lessen the negative effects of chemotherapy and other life-saving treatments. It is through our partnerships with benefactors, donors, fundraising efforts, and grants that make what we do possible.
