Champions of Hope

The Champions of Hope event salutes and celebrates four inspiring individuals for their achievements in the battle against cancer. The event will be held October 3, 2017, on the eleventh floor of the Heart and Orthopedic Centers building on the hospital’s downtown campus.  The honorees for this year include:

  • Cancer Caregiver: Nancy DeRoo, Volunteer, Comprehensive Cancer Center
  • Medical Professional  Kathy McCarthy, RT, (R) (M), MVH Breast Center Coordinator
  • Cancer Survivor  Ryan Davis
  • Person of Inspiration Jenell Ross, President, Bob Ross Auto Group

Proceeds will enhance and expand integrative therapies for MVH oncology patients, including specialized exercises, yoga, massage, Qigong/Tai Chi, water exercises and therapeutic art. Proceeds also support a snack cart for infusion patients, and a discretionary fund for patients with unanticipated expenses associated with their treatment. 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.
