Hope springs eternal
The Garden of Hope, located just outside the Shannon Oncology Center, provides a beautiful healing landscape for patients.At one point in our lives, we might face a difficult test, one that leads to a life-changing journey, and one that involves faith, trust and hope. Cancer is one of those difficult tests.
Let it grow
The Garden of Hope, located just outside the Shannon Oncology Center, provides a beautiful healing landscape for patients indoors as well, as they enjoy its beauty from the large windows inside the oncology treatment room. The garden is designed to be a place where they may rest or choose to receive their therapy while being rejuvenated by nature and the garden’s spirit that surrounds them.
The garden is made possible through lasting contributions from individuals and families through gifts in support of those whom we love or have loved, and who have been touched by cancer. We invite you to join us in enjoying this special place and help perpetuate its beauty, providing a lasting place of hope for cancer patients.
June 1 is Cancer Survivors Day—a celebration for those who have survived, an inspiration for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for families and an outreach to the community.
Brick by brick
Celebrate your loved one in a meaningful and unique way in The Garden of Hope—purchase a brick paver. These pavers are placed in the teardrop path in the middle of the garden. Pavers accommodate three lines of text with 12 characters per line. Pavers are 4 inches by 8 inches and come at $150 per paver.
Seeds of Hope
Help perpetuate the beauty of The Garden of Hope so it will remain a special place for all who may seek its comfort. Seeds of Hope contributions will be used toward ongoing plant and landscape maintenance in the garden. Contributions are available at $100, $50 and $25.
To provide patients and families with a place to find solace and serenity while creating an atmosphere of healing for the mind, body and spirit—this is the promise of The Garden of Hope.
