Celebrating 25 years
of Creating Hope!

What fun we had celebrating the 25th anniversary of Creating Hope! The enthusiasm was palpable as physician researchers recounted the lifesaving milestones achieved in cancer research and treatment since Creating Hope began in 1998.

This year generous donors gave nearly $900,000 for our clinical research. Even more notable … since Creating Hope began 25 years ago, donors have raised $12.6 million for cancer research at Providence.

These funds directly fuel the work of Providence scientists and physicians who are discovering innovative cancer treatments and changing the world.

To those who joined us for Creating Hope this year - thank you! To those who weren't able to attend, we missed you and we hope to see you at a future event soon.
