Global Heroes of Hope
A highly visible symbol of a personal victory over cancer, the Global Relay For Life Heroes of Hope and their stories encourage support of and participation in the programs of each international cancer organization.
More than simply inspiring us, cancer survivors and caregivers reaffirm the missions of our organizations and reinforce, in a personal way, the need for all of us to continue to fight back against cancer.
The Global Relay For Life Heroes of Hope survivorship initiative involves the selection of Heroes of Hope from Global Relay For Life participating countries. The initiative has three primary goals:
- To give each Global Relay For Life member country an opportunity to recognize one or more cancer survivors who have impacted their community
- To give one or more cancer survivors the opportunity to serve as a voice for their country’s cancer organization
- To encourage other cancer survivors to actively share their own cancer story and give hope to others
