The Power of Giving
The Marian mission is one of healing. This mission lives intimately with the joy that brings new life and restored health, as well as the sorrow that accompanies failing health and death. The Marian Regional Medical Center Foundation invites gifts, bequests and endowments from individuals and organizations who wish to acknowledge both the joy and sorrow of life. In times of joy, giving provides a way to share good fortune; in times of sorrow, giving makes a positive statement of hope. When you make a generous gift in support of patients and families at Mission Hope Cancer Center, your donation is a lasting testament that can be made out of admiration, friendship and love. Memorial gifts honor a loved one who has died. Celebration gifts honor friends, relatives and colleagues on special occasions, such as births, anniversaries and holidays. An acknowledgment of each gift will be sent to the individual being remembered, or his or her family. Gifts may be designated to Marian Cancer Care at Mission Hope Cancer Center in care of the Marian Foundation.
All donations, no matter the size, positively impact the lives of cancer patients and their families right here in our community. With these funds, Mission Hope Cancer Center is able to provide expanded care and needed practical support. Questions? For information, please contact:

Annual Event Celebrates Fifth Anniversary of Mission Hope Cancer Center
It was spring of 2012 when Mission Hope Cancer Center opened its doors to the community. Just five years later, Mission Hope Cancer Center is known as the region’s first integrative oncology facility recognized throughout the Central Coast as a beacon of hope for its advanced technology, clinical expertise and compassionate care.
As part of this year’s Day of Hope, Mission Hope commemorated its fifth anniversary with two additional events. We were pleased to welcome 200 people to the Eve of Hope Donor Reception and the next day the Survivorship Celebration drew 400 participants.On
April 11, 2017, more than 600 community members throughout Santa Maria, Lompoc, Orcutt, and Nipomo joined together in a united effort to sell $1 ‘special edition’ Day of Hope Santa Maria Times and Lompoc Record newspapers. One hundred percent of all Day of Hope proceeds stay in the community, benefiting local patients and families in need at Mission Hope Cancer Center.
The magnitude of this year’s Day of Hope was felt throughout the streets of our community as countless event participants and supporters shared how they have been touched by cancer.
The resounding success of Day of Hope would not be possible without the overwhelming generosity of event sponsors, devoted team leaders and participants, and a compassionate community. On behalf of Mission Hope Cancer Center’s physicians, nurses, volunteers—and most importantly, our patients—we thank you for your support of Day of Hope and the fifth anniversary of Mission Hope Cancer Center! You have made a lasting impact in the lives of local cancer patients.
