Fourth Annual Day of Hope
April 11, 2017
Cancer not only affects those with the disease; it affects an entire community. This is why Marian Regional Medical Center, in partnership with the Santa Maria Times, was proud to present the fourth annual Day of Hope on Tuesday, April 11, 2017. The total raised for local cancer patients and families in need at Mission Hope Cancer Center will be announced in the coming weeks.
On April 11, hundreds of community volunteers throughout the Santa Maria Valley, Lompoc, and Nipomo stood on street corners with a mission to ask drivers passing by to roll down their car windows and purchase a $1.00 Day of Hope newspaper. As always, one hundred percent of all Day of Hope proceeds stay in the community, benefiting cancer programs and support services for local patients and families.
Day of Hope Proceeds Directly Support:
- Patient Outreach Needs—Meeting the needs of patients and families struggling to make ends meet
- Equipment & Technology—Acquisition of the most advanced medical treatments and technologies to better serve the community
- Programs & Services—Nutritional support, education, counseling, support groups, etc., all offered at no charge to patients and families
As one of only three accredited Comprehensive Community Cancer Center programs between Los Angeles and San Francisco, Mission Hope Cancer Center features advanced, lifesaving technology and physicians from the nation’s top medical schools and training programs. This state-of-the-art cancer center is the first and only integrated oncology facility on the Central Coast, uniting Santa Maria oncology treatment, imaging, research, education, and support services at one convenient location for patients and families.
