Hope Is What We Live For.
About Us
Anne Mathay Anne Mathay, Founder and Executive Director

Anne originally formed Hank’s Hope in 2013 as a March of Dimes fundraising team, and officially incorporated the organization in 2015. Hank’s Hope was founded in memory of Henry Shaffer Mathay, stillborn at 33 weeks in 2012 to Anne and her husband, Noah.

She is active with many organizations that promote pregnancy loss awareness and pregnancy after loss awareness, including serving on the board of Pregnancy After Loss Support (PALS), a community support resource for women experiencing the confusing and conflicting emotions of pregnancy after a loss. Anne has found her voice through advocacy, outreach, and writing, frequently blogging about parenting after loss.

Anne is an account manager for a large corporation in Wilmington, and holds a BA from Towson University and an MS from Wilmington College. She and her family live in Wilmington.

2017 - 2018 Board of Directors

Meaghan Nana-Sinkam Meaghan Nana-Sinkam, Vice President

Meaghan is a stay-at-home mom and frequent volunteer. She volunteers at Cab Calloway School if the Arts, Newark's Hope Dining Room and Empowerment Center, and the Junior League of Wilmington.

Meaghan has felt passionate about the need for more help for women who experience pregnancy loss since her sister had a baby who was stillborn. Since then, two of her friends have had similar experiences and it has become apparent that pregnancy loss is something that is much more common than most people realize.

Her hope is that we can raise awareness and at the same time bring some comfort to families who are experiencing the hardest times of their lives.

Kelly is a business owner and stay at home mom to two boys, Max (6) and Will (4). She previously spent 13 years in education. Her son James was stillborn at 7 months in 2009. Since then, she has been passionate about helping other families navigate the difficult journey of life after loss.

Mary Kay is an active member of the Junior League of Wilmington and previously served as Assistant Treasurer and Treasurer on their board of Directors from 2013 to 2015. Volunteering and fundraising for non profits are her passions! She was drawn to Hank's Hope because pregnancy and infant loss have touched the lives of so many of her friends and family. She hopes that by working with Hank's Hope, she can help provide a little comfort to those that have gone through such a tragic experience.
  Susan Scofield, RN, CPNP, Medical Advisor

Susan Scofield is a wife and, with her husband, has two grown sons. She has been retired from active nursing for a year and now wishes to get active again in the community. She has volunteered for years as a member of the Junior League, as a board member of the Wilmington Senior Center, as a scout leader, with Westminster Presbyterian Church (Wilmington, DE) and the Presbyterian Church of Chestertown (Chestertown, MD), and with many school projects as a parent. She still mentors two of her former students from Talley Middle School. Her hobbies are needlework and gardening.

Susan’s interest in Hank’s Hope is because as a nurse she has worked with parents who have had fetal loss, and because she lost her second granddaughter who was born still at 7 ½ months gestation.
