90% of all colorectal cancers are preventable! But it must be detected early!

Hana lost her life's partner to colon cancer, and now she runs on the hope to save lives.

"Said" was her husband's name, it means “happy” in Arabic. But now it stands for: SPREAD AWARENESS INCREASE DETECTION.

And now the campaign #anaSAID is, as Hana describes it, for this beautiful moment when cancer patients receive their final cancer-free test results.

The surge of Love when they get surrounded by family members, the look on their face, this gratitude mixed with an utter appreciation for life's little moments makes all the hard work worth it.

This is Said; Every fighter and every survivor is Said, for Happiness is a fighting tool, perhaps one of the strongest in the world today.

Our goal is to STOP colon cancer by providing free FIT tests for its early detection. Our goal of $1,500 will provide 500 tests that we will make available all over Lebanon.

Following Said's diagnosis in 2009, Hana witnessed the pain her husband had to go through for 3 years. Their lives became centered around hospital appointments and post treatments which were equally painful. Said was such a brave fighter, he made it a point to raise awareness about Colorectal cancer. Said was 60 years old When he bid his farewells and left this world. Hana felt she needed to keep going with his mission, and that’s how SAID NGO was born.


Hana turned 58 this year and after attending the annual NGOS meeting organized by the Beirut Marathon she heard of a training program by BMA called 542. She thought she could talk to 542 runners and the best way was through joining few training runs.


Driven by an unexpected strength, Hana keeps logging more runs, getting stronger, faster, and fitter.

She trains with #teamRocky and the team's vibes are her main motivator to finish her runs. Her story is one of inspiration to the running community. We cannot wait to see this beautiful human crossing the finish line on Nov 11, 2018.


You can support Hana by running for Said NGO or donating to reach more people, create more awareness and save more lives.
