Hope Scarves

Goal: $55,000 Number of Donations: 2,231 Total Donations: $241,333

Hope Scarves shares scarves, stories and hope with people facing cancer by collecting scarves and survivor stories and passing them on to others in treatment.  A Hope Scarf can be requested by a patient, sent as a gift or received as part of treatment at 16 partner locations across the country.  We conduct workshops in scarf making, scarf tying and writing. And, we invest in translational metastatic breast cancer research, raising over $200,000 in the past two years.  Since our founding in 2012 we have sent nearly 10,000 scarves to people facing over 92 types of cancer in every state & 23 countries.  Our oldest recipient is 97 and the youngest, 4.  Whether you are a patient, have a loved one facing cancer or are a survivor Hope Scarves can be a resource. We have affectionately become known as "the sisterhood of the traveling scarves.”

Outrunning Cancer helps us fulfill our mission and spread the word about our program.  Miles to go before a cure… but closer with every step. Thank you for helping us outrun cancer!
