In celebration of the event's anniversary, the Hope Gala will launch Knoxville's first, Garden of Hope! The Garden of Hope will represent a celebration of those who have encountered the disease, whether they are in remission, currently in treatment, or sadly no longer with us. The garden will honor their journeys. Please join our chairs, Cindi and Pete DeBusk, to help illuminate how far we've come in cancer care, treatment and prevention, as well as how far we have to go.
