“What makes the desert beautiful,” said the Little Prince, “Is that somewhere it hides a well.”
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
This well will be constructed in Haiti in honor of the ongoing work of Drs. Wahid and Samia Hanna and each of the staff of the Hanna Cancer Associates. Dr. Hanna is a hematologist/oncologist practicing in Knoxville, Tennessee for more than 35 years. He has been the tool by which God has answered countless prayers for loved ones and family members throughout the region. His keen intellect combined with a genuine kindness shown to every patient make him a unique treasure in the Knoxville community. Some of those whose lives he has touched wish to honor his ongoing work by providing this water well to people in need. It is our prayer that those drinking from this well will find the water as nourishing and refreshing as Dr. Hanna’s kindness and expertise have been to his patients.
As the primary sponsor of this project, I, Dean Rice, want to personally express my deep appreciation to Dr. Hanna and his entire team. They have been an essential part of me and my family getting through two difficult years.
