mission of Hope Cancer Resources is to provide
compassionate, professional cancer support and education in
the Northwest Arkansas region today and tomorrow. Our vision
is to provide hope and enhance quality of life by expanding
prevention, wellness and comprehensive cancer support
services in our region.
Hope Cancer Resources employs a highly professional staff
which includes licensed oncology social workers, a Spanish
interpreter and certified health education specialists. Our
team is passionate about providing help and education to
families in Northwest Arkansas through our various programs.
Our transportation service is designed to provide patients
with safe and reliable transportation to and from their
cancer-related appointments as needed.
Financial assistance is provided for prescription
medications, nutritional supplements, gas cards and everyday
living expenses. Our goal is to help alleviate some of the
financial stress patients and their families may face.
Believing emotional support is essential for healthy
survivorship, we offer this service ranging from a kind word
or listening ear to individual, couples or family counseling
sessions with a licensed oncology social worker. Hope Cancer
Resources also provides emotional support in group settings.
In addition, Hope Cancer Resources impacts the community by
providing free cancer screenings and cancer prevention
education. This education includes tobacco cessation and
prevention, promoting healthy lifestyles and other means to
reduce the risk of cancer.
In 2017, we launched our Wellness Center for Hope to promote
wellness and healthy living in cancer survivors and
caregivers. Our desire is to enhance the quality of life in
survivors and caregivers by restoring physical activity,
optimizing nutrition and healthy weight, and developing
healthy behaviors and lifestyles.
The programs of Hope Cancer Resources are funded in part
through grants from the Cancer Challenge, Susan G. Komen –
Ozark Affiliate, the Walmart Foundation, Arkansas Cancer
Coalition, Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation, Northwest
Arkansas Medical Auxiliary, UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller
Cancer Institute Auxiliary, the Hope Cancer Resources
Foundation and corporate and individual donations.

In September 2009, Northwest Arkansas Radiation Therapy
Institute (NARTI) and HOPE, Inc. merged their patient
support and community outreach services to become Hope
Cancer Resources. By bringing these two organizations
together, the boards of directors created an entirely new
organization to provide cancer support and education to the
communities in Northwest Arkansas.
