Congratulations to Alyssa, the 2023 Hope Award Winner

Alyssa Gohra Hope Award winner

Alyssa Gohra, 21, of Mechanicville, NY, discovered she had a brain tumor in November 2022, and her brain surgery took place that December right before Christmas, an operation that lasted 8 hours. “Nobody can prepare you for what comes post surgery,” she wrote. She learned her brain tumor was cancerous and she is fighting her disease with grace and resilience.  “I knew one day I would feel better. I knew my pain wouldn’t last forever, the light was shining through more and more, each setback proved that. This may have changed my life, but looking back I am so glad it gave me a tremendous amount of strength, brought me closer to my family, and made me look at life differently. This was my second chance at life.”  


Each May, for the past 10 years, the EndBrainCancer Initiative, in Partnership with Novocure, has presented the Hope award to many brain cancer patients who deeply inspire us with their courage and story. We established the Hope Award to highlight exceptional people who have done exceptional things during their brain cancer journey all while inspiring others.


This Disease Education, Awareness & Outreach Campaign/ Initiative is made possible by our Sponsors…
