Our Special Guests

The Mile of Hope celebrates children treated by the Pediatric Oncology Departments of ECU in Greenville, UNC in Chapel Hill, and Duke University in Durham. Families from all over NC with children suffering from cancer and life threatening blood diseases are served by the quality care of these three facilities.

Their goal is to help families cope with this illness by offering the treatment, support and care that they need. Dedicated physicians, nurses, social workers and child life specialists provide this care including psychological, nutritional, financial and social assistance.
