For Those Who Have Fought,
and For Those Still Fighting…

Hope Floats Ribbon

We invite you to join our Krewe of Hope for a special celebration in a city that knows a thing or two about endurance, hope and survival.

And in true New Orleans fashion, it will be a celebration like no other – as we come together on National Cancer Survivors Day to celebrate you and your guests, and those who refuse to let cancer take away their will to live joyfully.

Special Guests!

Special guest WWL-TV’s Sally-Ann Roberts will join Hope Floats to read from her book “Your Power is ON! A Little Book of Hope” and her morning show co-host Eric Paulsen will emcee the event.
