About Us

The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer’s mission is to erase the effects of pediatric cancer and optimize each child’s quality of life through essential specialized intervention beginning at the time of diagnosis and continuing throughout survivorship. The Foundation provides services to children with cancer as well as their families through its cancer care center, Hatch’s House of Hope. The Foundation provides all services at no cost to the families. Services are funded solely by the generous donations of its supporters. For more information, visit www.hatcherfoundation.org

Hatch's House of Hope is a landmark pediatric cancer care center providing children and their families with the tools needed to cope and thrive at the onset of pediatric cancer, as well as the skills essential to live meaningful and productive lives as cancer survivors. The comprehensive services offered at no cost to families by Hatch’s include: problem-solving skills training, individual counseling, group counseling, marital counseling, family counseling, speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, equine therapy, music therapy, art therapy, academic coaching, cognitive assessment, social skills training, cognitive skills remediation, financial counseling, and diversionary therapy events for family enrichment. Services are provided from diagnosis through treatment, during remission, and into adulthood. Since opening its doors in September 2009, Hatch’s has provided over 500 hours of services to children with pediatric cancer and their families. Erlanger Medical Mall in Chattanooga, TN, is the site of the first Hatch's, which serves as the model for other Hatch’s in the planning stages nationwide.
