About Harper's Hope

Josie Harper, the late wife of former ConAgra President Mike Harper, was a beloved wife and mother who lost her life to lung cancer. 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.
