A Hope Rock was found recently in the garden near the front door to the Southcoast Health Women’s Center at 300B Faunce Corner Road in Dartmouth.

Patients and visitors at the Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care in Fall River and Fairhaven will be asked to draw a picture, write a message or add a few a simple words to a small rock. The patient or visitor will then be asked to take the rock and find a spot to leave it in the community over the course of their day.

“Our hope is that someone will find our Hope Rocks and smile, or maybe take it with them and pass it along to someone who needs hope, too,” said Kathy Tsonis, Oncology Outreach Coordinator at Southcoast Health. “Perhaps the message will remind someone that it’s time for their annual cancer screening or just let them know someone cares. Together, we will do our part in spreading our hope and support, and show our community that nobody does this alone.”

“We hope this project will continue for many years to come,” added Tsonis.
