About Harper's Hope

A special gift from The Harper Family Foundation established Harper’s Hope at Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center in Omaha, Nebraska to honor Josie and provide support services which will make a lasting difference to cancer survivors in the Omaha community.

Your Resource for Support Programs

Harper’s Hope offers services to help improve cancer survivors' quality of life. Services, made possible through a generous contribution to Methodist Hospital Foundation, are available to all cancer survivors at any stage of the cancer journey and regardless of where treatment was received. No one will be denied access due to the inability to pay.
