Our Work


Because of the generosity of our donors and the support of the Dayton region, we have invested significant resources in the Dayton region, and already changed the face of cancer for over 21,000 cancer patients.

Gala of Hope has:

  • Created the region’s first Tumor Tissue Bank at Dayton Children’s Hospital, now joined with 16 worldwide research hospitals, a fundamental building block for local cancer research with global influence.

  • Offered fertility preservation to children and teens facing cancer treatment.

  • Made available exercise and nutrition therapy through Maple Tree Cancer Alliance for all regional cancer patients. Maple Tree Cancer Alliance is founded in Dayton and is now the nation’s only cancer rehabilitation program with proven results to increase cancer survivor rates. Those who participate in exercise therapy during cancer treatment see greater endurance, fewer side effects, and overall better health. Their research was also funded by Gala of Hope.

  • Provided Massage Therapy to chemotherapy patients at all cancer centers, clinically shown to help improved the healing effects of infusion and reduce consequences.

  • Funded Mobile Mammography and Free Mammography Services for greater access across the region, particularly underprivileged areas.

  • Heightened Transportation Services for breast cancer patients through Pink Ribbon Girls.

  • Provided Direct Patient Support relieving financial expenses as patients fight against cancer.
