Kids Cancer Alliance Selects James Hayne to Lead Young Professionals Committee and Serve on Board

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Sept. 13, 2022)—Kids Cancer Alliance (KCA) has selected Stites & Harbison, PLLC attorney James Hayne as the inaugural chair of its Young Professionals Committee. As chair of this committee, Hayne will also serve as a member of the Board of Directors. His term will be one year.

Since 1981, KCA has given thousands of brave and amazing kids a reprieve from fighting cancer, and a place where they can just be kids. As a non-profit, KCA relies entirely on donations and volunteers to keep its programs free for every kid, sibling and family.

The Young Professionals Committee is a dedicated group of individuals in their 20s and 30s who are committed to raising awareness and funding to support the mission of KCA — to enhance the quality of life for children with cancer and their families through recreational and support programs.

Hayne is a Registered Patent Attorney and member of the Intellectual Property & Technology Service Group located in the firm’s Louisville office. His practice focuses on patent preparation and prosecution, both foreign and domestic. Hayne has experience prosecuting patent applications covering a wide range of subject matter, including electronic hardware and software, consumer goods and manufacturing equipment.

Outside of the firm, he is active in community and professional organizations. He is a graduate of the 2021 Ignite Louisville program, which first connected him with KCA. He is also a member of the American Intellectual Property Law Association.
