Champions of Hope

This inspiring event salutes and celebrates four inspiring individuals for their achievements in the fight against cancer: Emily Cone, an extraordinary caregiver; Elena Mikalauskas, an outstanding medical professional; Sharon Guenther, a courageous survivor; and Sheryl Bowman, a true person of inspiration. In video profiles and live remarks, their deeply personal stories lift your spirit and your heart. Proceeds benefit programs serving MVH cancer patients. In 2015, the event supported the continuation of complementary therapies for patients including yoga, exercise, massage and art therapy, support for a patient navigator and the establishment of the Cancer Care Social Services fund.

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.
