These honorees are nominated because they have demonstrated compassionate care and provided a source of hope and optimism in the administering of care and support to cancer patients. The Champion of Hope Award winner will be announced and awarded during the luncheon.

During the luncheon guests will enjoy Keynote Speaker, Stuart Stout of March Forth with Hope from Charlotte, NC. His story of courage and triumph through his cancer journey with his own daughter will inspire us all to be Champions of Hope.
