About Hope Scarves
Founder, Lara MacGregor, with first scarf recipient, Roberta, in 2009. Diagnosed in their early 30’s with stage 2 breast cancer, both women progressed to metastatic, stage 4 breast cancer in their 40’s. In 2019 Roberta died. This is unacceptable.
Hope Scarves is an international non-profit organization. We share hope with people facing cancer through scarves, stories and research. Since our founding in 2012, we’ve grown exponentially and affectionately became known as the “sisterhood of the traveling scarves.”
The scarves and stories are paired together to spread hope to others in treatment. They are the tangible reminders there is light in the world. They are our “now.” The research is the push for change, and it is our future. Research is key for improved treatment options and outcomes.
