Scott Banke: The Impact of a Life

 

On March 18, 1989, Scott Robert Banke was born to Bob and Carmen Banke. Upon his arrival, he bonded immediately with his older sister, Leslie, to make their family complete. As he grew, Scott loved all the things young boys love to do: camping, hunting, fishing, playing with his little dog; Gracie. 

 

Inspiring Youth – Encouraging Families

The "See Ya Later" Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in Oregon and Washington that began out of the inspiration of a 12-year-old boy who died of cancer. Scott Banke had a zest for life and a courage that motivates the mission of the Foundation: "Inspiring Youth - Encouraging Families".
