Heroes of Hope
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life, Mid-South Division Heroes of Hope initiative honors cancer survivors and caregivers from across the Division whose work exemplifies the mission of the American Cancer Society by providing them public speaking opportunities to share their American Cancer Society story with others.
Our goal is to provide training for these survivors and caregivers that will assist them in publicly sharing their story with local American Cancer Society groups, Relay For Life team captains, kick-off participants, survivor groups and at a variety of other engagements.
Once a volunteer has been identified as a Hero of Hope, they are always a Hero of Hope and can at any time be called upon to speak at events.
The 2013 American Cancer Society Relay For Life Heroes of Hope for the Mid-South Division completed their training October 26th and 27th, 2012 in Birmingham, Alabama and are now ready to speak at your Relay For Life events and activities.
The volunteer co-chairs for 2013 are Keisha Pittman of Arkansas and Mallory Chandler of Alabama, both survivors and members of previous Hero of Hope classes. They have been strong and confident leaders in this nomination and selection process and are extremely please to present this class of Heroes of Hope.
