Faces of Hope Nominations Now Being Accepted

July 26, 2012

Adventist Medical Center is proud to sponsor the 2012 American Cancer Society Faces of Hope Award. The public is invited to nominate a cancer survivor from the Portland metro area who has exemplified hope, promise and inspiration throughout their journey with cancer.

An estimated 1,638,910 men and women will be diagnosed with cancer in 2012. Many of us have friends, family and co-workers that are battling or have battled cancer. The spirit that we see in them serves as an inspiration for those whose lives they impact.

The public may nominate someone who, despite their journey with cancer, is making or has made a profound difference for others. These are individuals who have not allowed cancer to define who they are.

Nominations may be for anyone who is currently fighting cancer or who has beat cancer. Nominations forms may be downloaded at www.adventisthealthnw.com/FacesofHope. Nomination deadline is Sunday, August 5. Survivor is for anyone who has felt the impact of cancer and is still alive. 

The top 3 finalists will be honored on stage at the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in East Portland on Saturday, Aug. 11 at 2:30 p.m. at the Portland Christian School located at 12425 NE San Rafael in East Portland.
