The Board of Ambassadors is a group of individuals and business leaders in northeast Pennsylvania who have come together to raise funds & awareness to fight cancer in the local community through their support and promotion of a gala event.

The Spirit of Hope Celebration benefits the Cancer Institute’s Patient Navigation Program which helps low income, uninsured and underinsured individuals in northeast Pennsylvania receive their recommended breast, cervical, and colon cancer screenings.  Focusing on the areas of community and patient services, cancer surveillance, and hospital and practice support services the Cancer Institute invests 100% of its resources in this region.
