Women Helping Women


Women Helping Women is a program that supports women in WNC by offering both financial and emotional support to those who need it. What started in 1998 as a group of women offering means to pay for various cancer screenings and treatment has transformed into so much more.

This program continues to expand, raising over $2 million to provide resources, strength, courage, and hope patients need to conquer various medical conditions such as heart disease, osteoporosis, and cancer. Donors to Women Helping Women haven’t just impacted livesthey are saving them. Your support makes all of this possible.

Previous Years:

Women of Hope


Since 1998, Pardee Hospital Foundation’s Women Helping Women program has raised over $2 million for financial assistance for uninsured and under-insured women as well as equipment, facilities and services for women at Pardee Hospital.  As part of this effort, the Women of Hope display was created to highlight women in our community who have experienced cancer and other women’s health issues. This display is a collection of photographic portraits, each with a personal statement from the participants.

Pardee Hospital Foundation is pleased to honor women in our community for sharing their story of courage, will, and determination. We invite you to view this wonderful collection of photographs of local women who are survivors of cancer and other serious health conditions housed at the Pardee Cancer Center.

Nominate Your Woman of Hope

The Woman of Hope Award honors women in the community for sharing their stories of courage, determination, and will as they faced cancer and other serious health conditions. Nominations for our 2018 Woman of Hope, a woman who exemplifies strength, courage, and hope in the face of a difficult medical diagnosis, will open next summer.
