VOICES OF HOPE

Who Are Voices of Hope?

Voices of Hope are empowered cancer survivors and caregivers who share their personal stories of their cancer journey while inspiring others to support the mission of the American Cancer Society. Serving as highly visible models of personal victory over the disease, Voices of Hope offer inspiration to cancer survivors, caregivers, family, and friends, while encouraging involvement with the American Cancer Society and the Relay For Life movement.

Voices of Hope are selected and trained based on their commitment to the mission of the Society and their willingness to share their cancer journey. These extraordinary volunteers inspire hope in the fight against cancer, empower others through hands-on engagement with Relay For Life and communities, and move others to take action and help attack cancer from every angle.
