“A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.”  Jackie Robinson

We at the Tara Hansen Foundation believe this sums up the way Tara lived her life.  As a special education teacher at the West Freehold School in Freehold, NJ she changed lives on a daily basis.  Her profession truly defined the type of person she was. Loving, compassionate and generous, Tara made an impact on everyone she met.  Her smile and positive energy inspired us all to be better.  On March 31, 2011 Tara passed away due to complications from childbirth.  Six days earlier gave birth to her first child, Brandon Ryan.

The Tara Hansen Foundation has been established to honor Tara’s life and memory.  Our goal, continue to act in the same selfless manner in which Tara lived her life.  We are dedicated to the advancement of maternal health awareness.  The foundation believes that expecting parents deserve equal education on the risks associated with the mother as well as the child.  We also plan to continue giving back to the school where she worked.  Most importantly, we hope to keep Tara’s positive spirit and appreciation for life alive.
