Voices of Hope

Who Are Voices of Hope?

Voices of Hope are empowered cancer survivors and caregivers who speak about their cancer journey in order to inspire others to support the mission of the American Cancer Society. Serving as highly visible models of personal resilience over the disease, Voices of Hope are speakers who offer inspiration to cancer survivors, caregivers, family and friends, while encouraging involvement with the American Cancer Society.

Voices of Hope are selected and trained based on their commitment to our mission and their willingness to speak about their cancer journey. These extraordinary volunteers inspire hope in our work against cancer, empower others through hands-on engagement with ACS events and communities, and move others to help end cancer as we know it, for everyone.
