In partnership with Conquer magazine, the Hero of Hope Patient Award annually recognizes an individual whose life is touched by cancer for his or her outstanding contributions to the cancer community.
The recipient of the Hero of Hope Patient Award will receive a $1,000 donation made to his or her chosen charity, a plaque, a feature in Conquer: the journey informed™, and a nontransferable travel, accommodation, and registration to the AONN+ Annual Conference.


Award consideration is based on the following. Nominee must be:
