Women of Hope


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. A collection of photos of past Woman of Hope Award recipients are on display at the Elizabeth Reilly Breast Center at Pardee. 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 in the summer of 2018.


Since 1998, Pardee Hospital Foundation’s Women Helping Women program has raised over $1.8 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 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 Comprehensive Cancer Center at Pardee and the Elizabeth Reilly Breast Center.
