About the Hope Begins Here Award

Founded in 2011, the Hope Begins Here Award is presented annually to an outstanding leader and advocate for cancer treatment and prevention on the North Shore. In conjunction with this award, Boston North Cancer Association presents a scholarship in honor of each year’s Hope Begins Here Award Honoree to a college-bound North Shore high school senior whose parent passed away from cancer or is undergoing treatment for cancer.
