HANNAH STORM

    Caring for Kids Spokesperson


    Hannah Storm is an award-winning journalist, producer/director, published author and anchor of ESPN's SportsCenter. A pioneer in the field of sports broadcasting for women, she is also an advocate for children’s issues and has signed on as the official spokesperson for the Caring for Kids campaign.

    Hannah was born with a port-wine stain birthmark beneath her left eye and knows what it is like to need reconstructive surgery.

    "I myself needed surgery for a disfiguring birthmark as a child. That's why I'm teaming up with The Plastic Surgery Foundation -- to give kids the quality of life they deserve."

    Hannah has become a major advocate for children and parents of children suffering from debilitating and disfiguring vascular birthmarks.



    She will appear on behalf of the Caring for Kids campaign in print advertisements and TV public service announcements.

    In 2008 she founded the Hannah Storm Foundation to raise awareness, fund treatment and provide educational information for vascular malformations. To date, children from the United States, China, the Republic of Georgia and Slovenia have received surgery funding through her foundation.

    Throughout her career, Hannah has covered many major sporting events, including the Super Bowl, NBA Finals and World Series, among others. She has also worked for NBC Sports, CNN and spent five years at CBS News as host of "The Early Show."

    She is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and the mother of three daughters with her husband, Dan Hicks of NBC Sports. She considers raising her children her greatest accomplishment.
