Hope award winner
Amy Smith, Novocure, Inc.; Stephanie Shannon, Novocure Inc.; Ken Whitley, 2018 National HOPE Award Winner; Tracey Hanover, Novocure, Inc.; Dellann Elliott Mydland, Co-founder & President, EBCI

Ken Whitley was presented with the 2018 National HOPE Award, sponsored by Novocure, to the brain cancer patient who embodies HOPE in facing this disease. In receiving his award, Ken stated to the brain cancer patients in the audience and beyond, “DON’T GIVE UP!! THERE IS HOPE! Put one foot in front of the other; keep moving forward. Define and pursue your goals while putting your trust in God. Doctors can treat. They can’t heal. God does, however, work through doctors, scientists and the EndBrainCancer Initiative’s team. Don’t give up!”

Ken was diagnosed with a brain tumor on Super Bowl Sunday in February 2017. In the evening’s “mission moment,” Ken credited the EBCI team with providing guidance and insight that changed his approach to treatment as well as connecting him with key doctors offering a wide variety of treatment options. “EBCI gave me HOPE. I was lost and did not know which way to turn. With their help I got activated.” (Ken’s Impact Story)
