Casting for Hope is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that aids women and families in Western North Carolina who are surviving after a diagnosis of ovarian or other gynecological cancer. Casting for Hope aids these women and families through two primary ways: we provide retreats for women and caregivers and we provide financial aid to women and their families who are struggling to make ends meet due to the financial pressures of battling cancer.
