Hi, my name is Hanna! I love any and all outdoor adventures! I was part of NUS’12 riding from Portsmouth NH to Vancouver B.C. Bike and Build was one of the best things I have ever done, so when I heard about Worthwhile Mile I was thrilled!!
Directly after Bike and Build I decided to explore the west coast so I moved to San Francisco with another Bike and Build rider. I have since returned to Boston, and I now work for a medical device company. I cannot wait to hop back on the old bike saddle and peddle my way through the beautiful yet challenging landscape that Tennessee and North Carolina will have in store for us.
I am excited to spread awareness about the field of Anaplastology because it is something that has been left in the dark. When telling people about this ride and how thrilled I am to make an impact, I found that hardly anyone was familiar with Anaplastology.
Spreading awareness will not only encourage the growth of Anaplastology research, but it will also spread awareness about all the lives that can be changed by having access to facial prosthetics. I am ready to shine light on Anaplastology and give it the attention it deserves.
I am so excited for this opportunity and to support such a wonderful cause!

HANGS THE HELMET in: Boston, MA
Anaplastology is a term that refers to the practice of prosthetic restoration of facial or somatic (body) anatomy for patients who have suffered disfigurement due to cancer, trauma, or congenital origin. Prosthetic rehabilitation serves as an alternative treatment option when surgical reconstruction is unachievable or undesired by the patient.
