Hannah Dunaway


Hannah's Story

Hannah Dunaway spent the first five months of her life in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at Children’s Hospital. Diagnosed with cystic hygroma, or recurring nonmalignant tumors, Hannah had her first surgery at just six days old. Since then, she’s endured an unimaginable 40 additional surgeries. Because of the rarity of her illness, doctors at Batson have teamed with specialists at other hospitals to ensure Hannah receives the lifesaving care she needs. With each surgery, Hannah and her family continue to hope that the occurrence of future tumors will be reduced. This sweet, spirited singer and dancer with a smile that’ll melt your heart, hopes to become a pediatrician and help kids the way she has been helped. We have no doubt she’ll meet her goals.
