Established in January 2011, the Anna Schindler Foundation is named after a compelling little girl whose life was taken by a rare childhood liver cancer called hepatoblastoma at the tender age of seven.
The mission of the Anna Schindler Foundation is to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer as well as support oncology families during their child’s illness.
The Anna Schindler Foundation with helping hands and hearts will make a difference in the lives of these children and their families.
Anna Schindler was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma (liver cancer) on January 27, 2010. She underwent chemotherapy, and on May 5 skilled surgeons removed 70% of her liver that contained a large tumor. Pathology reports came back that Anna had hepatoblastoma and yolk sac cancer. 1 in 1 million children suffer from hepatoblastoma – even rarer is a child with both.
