HOPE (Health Opportunity through Partnership in Education) has gifted the American Cancer Society (ACS) $100,000 to support world-class cancer research. To date, HOPE has contributed $250,000 to the society's lifesaving mission.

HOPE, incorporated in 1982, is a non-profit organization that works to promote good health, encourage scientific research and disseminate information concerning the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer and other serious diseases and accidents.

HOPE, in partnership with Washington National Insurance Company, collaborated with ACS in their 2012 matching gift program, with the promise of HOPE matching donations up to a total of $100,000 in gifts received. We're proud to join the fight against cancer and are pleased to make this donation on behalf of HOPE," said Barbara Stewart, president of HOPE. "Once again, the generous contributions made by Washington National certificate holders and HOPE will further support the American Cancer Society's efforts to fund life saving research and programs to help people stay well, get well, and find cures for cancer."

"We're proud to join the fight against cancer and are pleased to make this donation on behalf of HOPE," said Barbara Stewart, president of HOPE.  "Once again, the generous contributions made by Washington National certificate holders and HOPE will further support the American Cancer Society's efforts to fund life saving research and programs to help people stay well, get well, and find cures for cancer."

HOPE, based in Carmel, Indiana, has long been associated with Washington National, a subsidiary of CNO Financial Group, Inc. HOPE members and Washington National's 80,000 cancer policy certificate holders generously contribute to the HOPE foundation to support and promote its mission through partnerships with established non-profit organizations, such as the American Cancer Society.

"The HOPE contribution will enable the American Cancer Society to continue to fund lifesaving cancer research programs," said Roshini George, national vice president of health promotions for the Society. "The donation goes a long way toward helping the society continue its fight for every birthday threatened by cancer."
