Champions of Hope

Date:Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017

This inspiring event salutes and celebrates four extraordinary individuals for their achievements in the fight against cancer. In 2016 the honorees included: Emily Cone, an extraordinary caregiver; Elena Mikalauskas, an outstanding medical professional; Sharon Guenther, a courageous survivor; and Sheryl Bowman, a true person of inspiration. Proceeds from Champions of Hope went to enhance and expand complementary therapies including exercise, yoga, massage and therapeutic art for MVH oncology patients. Proceeds also support a snack cart for infusion patients, and a discretionary fund for patients with unanticipated expenses associated with treatment.

Please nominate your own champion for possible recognition in this year’s event.

A beautiful tribute bouquet displayed at the event serves as an opportunity for donors to honor their personal cancer champions. Bouquet donations of $25 or more in honor or in memory of a loved one or friend will serve as a meaningful symbol of recognition and will be featured during the evening.
