Hopestone was founded in 2012 by Dr. Jennifer McKissick, a breast cancer warrior, as a place where the cancer community could come for support, education, exercise and the arts. Hopestone offers a wide variety of support groups, wigs, hats, scarves, transportation assistance, prescription assistance, meal program and many other things that patients and their families need to help them on their journey. Cancer Patients, Survivors and caregivers of those currently in treatment never pay a fee for our services, that is all taken care of by our generous donors and the community who pay small fees to have access to our programs. It's a true "people helping people" philosophy.
We recently welcomed Tim Morris, CMT to our facility. Tim is known for his amazing work with lymphatics, specifically Lymph Drainage Therapy. He also works with Deep Tissue, Trigger Point and Myofascial Release. We are honored to have Tim available to our cancer community. He can be reached by calling 918-914-2643 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through are partnership with Samaritan Growth & Counseling Services we also have Lacey Carroll, LCSW available at our site on Wednesday afternoons to meet with our cancer patients and/or their family members. You can schedule an appointment with Lacy by contacting Hopestone or Samaritan Counseling at 918-336-1463.

Ellen, Cancer Survivor
"I lost myself during treatment, Hopestone gave me "ME" back. I have a place where I can get back to the things I enjoy, back to doing things for me!"
Shirley, Cancer Patient
"Hopestone gives me peace and comfort. I get totally engrossed in what I am doing and nothing else matters."
Patty, Cancer Survivor/Volunteer
"Hopestone gives me a chance to help others, I remember how scared I was when I was diagnosed, I can help to ease the fear in others by giving them hope and sharing my experiences. I help ladies pick out wigs, hats and scarves and tell them about all the services we have available to them. We can even connect them with a mentor whose been on the same journey so they don't feel so alone."
