Gems of Hope Inc. is a non-profit organization that offers gifts of jewelry mounted on inspirational cards to cancer patients. The patients are invited, along with family and friends, to attend workshops to create these works of art for others. Gems of Hope provides unique opportunities for patients to connect with others. Exposure to inspirational quotes and access to a resource library become the true gems that patients can carry through their treatment and beyond.
