Description

The Scott Hamilton CARES Initiative (CARES) was founded in 1999 as a partnership between Scott Hamilton, Olympic ice-skating champion and cancer survivor, and the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute where he was treated. CARES was created to promote cancer awareness while raising significant funds for cancer research. Key components of CARES include 4th Angel Mentoring Program – designed to match newly diagnosed patients with trained volunteers who are also cancer survivors and to match a caregiver of a cancer survivor to a current caregiver of a cancer patient; Chemocare.com – a unique website designed to help patients better understand the chemotherapy experience; Research Funding and Annual Ice show and Gala – the primary fundraising event for CARES.
