Samuel Hanke, MD



Sam, Charlie’s Dad, is a pediatrician and an attending pediatric cardiologist at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. He regularly deals with fragile infants and is able to relate to their parents with the empathy that only suffering a death like Charlie’s could make possible. He fell in love with Charlie the minute they met, and his love for Charlie has given him the passion to fuel Charlie’s Kids Foundation. He is proud of Charlie's impact and hope his story will help prevent others from suffering the unthinkable loss of beloved children.
