High Plains Heroes of Hope: Profiles of Courage
The High Plains Relay For Life Heroes of Hope and their Profiles of Courage symbolize the courageous struggle of all cancer patients and caregivers as they deal with the physical and emotional aspects of their cancer journey. Through their stories, Heroes of Hope help to create more birthdays as they fight back against cancer in communities across the High Plains Division.
Heroes of Hope: Profiles of Courage is a survivorship initiative involving the selection of 28 Heroes of Hope from across the High Plains Division of the American Cancer Society (Hawaii/Guam, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas). This effort has three primary goals.
In sharing their inspiring stories, they encourage others to tell their stories and to support the American Cancer Society in tis mission to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays and ultimately give people more of their most precious resource: time. More time with their families and friends, more memories, more celebrations, and more birthdays.
