The Garden of Hope - The Pap Corps

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., Oct 07, 2020 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Pap Corps Champions for Cancer Research will unveil the vision for its eagerly awaited “Garden of Hope” project at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center in Deerfield Beach, during a free, virtual event October 15, 2020, beginning at 6 p.m. The Zoom webinar, co-hosted by Sylvester Director, Stephen D. Nimer, M.D., will showcase beautiful renderings of the garden, which is designed to be a place of peaceful reflection, and will feature bricks, benches and plaques honoring loved ones, physicians, and volunteers.

Members and non-members of The Pap Corps are welcome to participate in the event and support cancer research through the brick campaign. To learn more and register for the event, visit https://www.thepapcorps.org/.

“We are delighted to announce that construction will commence on the ‘Garden of Hope’ this fall,” said Susan Dinter, chair of The Pap Corps. “The garden will offer a place of tranquility and peace for patients, family, and all who visit the campus. The Pap Corps is honored to be spearheading this important project, which welcomes donors to create an enduring legacy while supporting the next survivor.”

The “Garden of Hope” has been a dream of the non-profit since the Deerfield Beach location was named The Pap Corps Campus in 2016 after its historic $50 million dollar pledge to Sylvester, which is the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in South Florida, and only the second one in the state. The garden will feature a stunning, bronze-colored fountain, benches, plaques with inspirational sayings, and a pathway of multi-colored bricks engraved with personalized inscriptions and dedications. The area will be surrounded by lush landscaping, including shade trees and flowers. The design concept was created by the architectural firm of Curtis & Rogers, the construction firm is BDW Construction, and completion is anticipated in Spring 2021.

“‘The Garden of Hope’ reflects the immeasurable generosity and conviction of The Pap Corps as we accelerate our efforts to eradicate cancer,” said Dr. Nimer, M.D., who is also the Oscar de la Renta Endowed Chair in Cancer Research. “We are deeply grateful for their visionary partnership and the profound impact it continues to have on research excellence and patient care at Sylvester.”

Opportunities to support the project are open to all and include the purchase of dedicated bricks, as well as pre-sale on benches for phase two of the project. Thanks to early contributions, all the benches in phase 1 are sold out, with some remaining opportunities to purchase plaques on the Fountain of Hope and Wall of Hope.

“Purchasing a brick allows you to honor a significant person in a permanent fashion, while also supporting The Pap Corps’ mission to fund cancer research at Sylvester,” Dinter continued. “This campaign is more crucial than ever, as donations to cancer research have been dramatically reduced since COVID-19. We encourage everyone who would like to do their part in eradicating cancer to join us in our quest.”

Bricks are available in size 4 x 8 for
