The 10th Annual Joan Hisaoka "Make a Difference" Gala

Through Joan Hisaoka's experiences at cancer-related retreats and programs across the country, she learned the immense healing power of emotional, psychological and spiritual support, and sought to extend that support to others. This Gala was created to honor Joan and her dream of assisting those living with cancer. Life with Cancer is honored to be the major beneficiary of this extraordinary event. If you or the organizations you work for are interested in the event or sponsorship, please see the Hisaoka Gala Sponsor Reply Sheet below for more information or contact Amy Richards at Amy.Richards@inova.org.

Spring2ACTion on April 5, 2017

What if we all gave on one day? Well, on April 5th, we can! Spring2ACTion is a 24-hour online event that provides a simple way to connect donors to the charitable causes they care about most.

Your donation will go towards our $85,000 goal to renovate the current Life with Cancer space at Inova Alexandria Hospital to create a comfortable, welcoming and home-like environment. Most importantly, philanthropy will ensure that patients and families faced with cancer in the Alexandria area will have the resources of Life with Cancer at no cost and close to home. IT'S EASY! To make your donation on April 5th,  follow this link, click on the DONATE button, then "Search" for Life with Cancer. Spread the word to family & friends via Twitter@InovaHealth and Facebook!
