The French Hospital Medical Center Foundation’s annual “Share the Hope” event held last month resulted in more than $450,000 to benefit the Hearst Cancer Resource Center (HCRC) Endowment. 

The endowment provides vital long term support for French Hospital’s HCRC, allowing its programs and services to continue providing comfort, support, and information to cancer patients and their families, regardless of their ability to pay for services, for many years to come. 

During the event, more than 180 guests were treated to a champagne reception held by the famous Neptune Pool at Hearst Castle, followed by a gourmet dinner at the historic Hearst Ranch Dairy Barn, featuring as live auction and live music. 

Over the past 14 years, “Share the Hope” has raised more than $4.4 million to benefit HCRC programs and services

The HCRC collaborates with community and physician partners to provide supportive and educational services necessary for cancer patients to understand their disease, manage treatment, and maintain dignity and quality of life throughout all aspects of their cancer experience.
