Hannah’s Chance Foundation

Hannah’s Chance Foundation was established in October 2007 to raise valuable funds for medical research to help find a cure for a rare type of cancer called sarcomas.

The establishment of Hannah’s Chance Foundation was the dream of Hannah Ciobo, daughter of Australian swimming great Tracey Wickham and Robert Ciobo, and Hannah’s husband Tom O’Driscoll.

Hannah fought very bravely against the rare synovial sarcoma for three years until she lost her battle on 2 October 2007, aged 19. Tom suffered from Ewings sarcoma, but fortunately is now in remission.

Due to the limited amount of research currently being undertaken on sarcomas there is every possibility that, with the community’s support, Hannah’s Chance Foundation can make a significant difference to the lives of thousands of sarcoma sufferers in Australia and around the world.

Administered by The Wesley Research Institute, a centre dedicated to making an immediate and lasting difference to people’s lives through medical research, the Foundation will support research projects across Australia to help find a cure for sarcoma.

Tony Phillips is currently the chairman of the Foundation board and is passionate about raising funds for research into the cause of sarcoma and the support of the victims and their families.

Phillips Family Law is a corporate sponsor of Hannah’s Chance Foundation and provides significant financial support to help fund the Foundation and its work.
