Beginnings of Hope Abounds

Our Daughter Kelly

Women of Hope, one program within Hope Abounds, Inc., evolved when cancer became a reality for Elizabeth and Kenny Barnes with the diagnosis of breast cancer for their 32-year old daughter. Along their journey the Barnes family met many female survivors and learned that unlike breast cancer, there are few programs of support and assistance for women diagnosed with other types of cancer.

Women of Hope was founded to fill these gaps in services to meet the needs of all female cancer survivors and their families.  Services have now been expanded through A Kids Hope.  Both Women of Hope and A Kids Hope operate under our corporate name of Hope Abounds, Inc.  Hope Abounds provides supportive services, financial assistance, educational opportunities and advocacy for women, children, teens and their families, who are going through any type of cancer from diagnosis to survivorship.

By helping to meet some of the basic needs of those who are battling a cancer diagnosis, Hope Abounds, Inc. is instrumental in allowing the patient and family to concentrate on being their own best advocate during their treatment.  Hope Abounds provides educational and support programs, helping with patient advocacy and offering financial assistance.  We offer hope that you are not alone in your journey!

The Start of Hope Abounds program Women of Hope.

In 2016 services have been expanded to meet the needs of children and teens diagnosed with cancer and their families through A Kids Hope.  Both of these programs operate under the corporate name of Hope Abound, Inc.

We are enthusiastic to share that we are partnered with the Pediatric Staff at UNC Chapel Hill this year as we launch A Kids Hope programs. The scope of reach and influence for Hope Abounds, Inc. continues to grow as we partner with major hospital systems through the region to bring education, hope, awareness and hopeful prevention of cancer through education for future generations.
