With the help from Total Quality Logistics “Moves That Matter” program, the last wish of a brave young brain cancer victim will go forward. TQL recently made a $1,000 gift to the Hannah Duffy Foundation to assist the deserving high school seniors with scholarship money for college.
Sue Funck, Hannah’s mother and the director of the foundation said, “Hannah was very vocal about what she wanted. She did not want to be forgotten and she wanted us to pay it forward, to continue to fight for a cure.”
Moves That Matter benefits the non-profit organizations which use the truckload transportation industry to carry items that will help those in need.
The Hannah Duffy Foundation was launched in early 2014 which is about six months after Hannah’s passing. Hannah Duffy was cured with brain cancer when she was just 13 years old.
“That was like a Disney movie; you couldn’t script it any better,” Funck said. “Hannah was very athletic and started playing soccer when she was five. But she had a really soft heart for kids with special needs and kids who didn’t have her gifts.”
For this reason, the Hannah Duffy Foundation with the help of Where Angels Play Foundation will also build a fully handicap-accessible playground in Hannah’s memory next month where TQL will arrange for all the movement of the playground gear to the building site.
