About SYL

The primary mission of SYL is its Seeds of Hope outreach. The program works to provide support and resources to families in medical crisis. It is the foundation’s mission to “adopt” and bless at least one family per month by providing that family with some special time together, and/or providing such needs as yard work, minor home repair, automobile repair, helping with medical bills or simply supplying the family with basic needs such as clothing, groceries, school supplies or gas money.

The foundation was founded in 2001 after the death of 12-year-old, Scott Banke. He was just 10 years old when he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer. Scott was known for his personal visits throughout the other rooms in the hospital and encouraging other children by performing magic tricks and providing smiles and laughs for all in attendance.

Even though his prognosis was grim, Scott would never say goodbye, choosing instead to tell people, “See ya later.” Scott’s hope and zest for life was infectious, and he wanted to share that hope with as many people as he could, especially the kids he shared treatment rooms with at Children’s Hospital. Scott was so beloved in his community that nearly 1,100 people attended his funeral.
