Chase Hanaka can be always be found nose-deep in a book, playing with his best friends or spreading the word of the importance of education about cancer.
The idea of Coins Curing Cancer was generated by three lively, compassionate, and strong- willed best friends, or “bubbys” as they refer to themselves as. Chase Sweers and twins Cole and Chase Hanaka, who have known each other since infancy, decided to dream big by founding an organization that would help others. The decision to create Coins Curing Cancer came after all three boys’ lives had been affected by cancer. With loved one after loved one being diagnosed with the deadly disease, the boys decided it was time to change how our local community talks about cancer.
