GIVEHOPE is an entirely volunteer-run organization that supports southwest Ohio cancer patients and their families, as well as local cancer researchers at the University of Cincinnati. GIVEHOPE aims to expedite progress in the fight against pancreatic cancer, the fourth deadliest form of cancer in the United States behind only breast, lung and colon cancer. Since its inception in late 2010, GIVEHOPE, along with its corporate partner, BSI Engineering, has raised more than $150,000 to benefit pancreatic cancer research, education, prevention and awareness programs, with a particular focus on the greater Cincinnati area. Now more than ever, we must work harder and faster to grow our community of scientists, increase annual federal research dollars, enroll more patients in clinical trials and increase national awareness by attracting more volunteers and participants to our events.
GIVEHOPE is entirely volunteer and In the five years that I have been a member the group has grown substantially and the energy and enthusiasm just keeps growing! I’m glad I found out about GIVEHOPE. They are making a difference.
