Saint Francis Foundation

Hope & Healing Campaign

The Hope & Healing Campaign is raising funds to support oncology care to further the impact, innovation and expertise of this remarkable institution, ultimately offering patients the best possible chance for a cure.

Our goal is to bring healing and comfort to our cancer patients and their families and to help them find their smile every day. On the tough days, as well as the days that call for dancing victory celebrations, our nurses and doctors are there side by side with their patients. Answering questions, giving support, lending a shoulder to cry on, a quiet prayer before surgery or a “high five” to make a long-awaited milestone – these are the little things that turn doubt to hope and trust.

To date we have raised almost $20 million of our $25 million goal.

Donor Story


Eileen Adams and her family came to know Saint Francis after she was diagnosed with advanced stage of glioblastoma. Eileen’s five month journey began when her daughter Nancy received some sage advice from a close friend, “There is more than the actual treatment in cancer care, so you need to get your mom to Saint Francis immediately.”
