A place where nobody stands alone.

Each year thousands of people are diagnosed with cancer and begin the physically demanding and emotionally challenging journey toward survival. Ribbon of Hope complements the technical side of cancer care by bringing encouragement to patients on their cancer journey. Our staff and volunteers also connect with family members and caregivers in order to provide additional encouragement and support as they work with their loved one. Since our beginning in 1999, Ribbon of Hope has walked beside more than 1800 cancer patients in our community.
