2018 Swallows of Hope Awards

NEW this Year!

Oregon Cancer Foundation will honor two individuals for demonstrating extraordinary caring and compassion to those in our community affected by cancer. Like swallows that point sailors toward dry land, these individuals provide hope in the face of adversity. An award will be given to one healthcare professional and one community member, which will be presented at our annual Neighbors Helping Neighbors with Cancer Breakfast on May 8th at Valley River Inn in Eugene, Oregon.

If you know a healthcare professional or community member who consistently goes above and beyond to spread hope to local cancer patients, nominate them by completing and submitting the form below.
