A local organization devoted to helping those with cancer as well as their families celebrated a milestone Friday. The Hopestone Cancer Support Center of Bartlesville Friday celebrated acquisition of 501 (c)(3) status. While Hopestone has always been a non-profit, up to this point they have had to receive their money from another organization for funding with a little bit taken for administrative fees. Now, according to Hopestone's Executive Director Deborah Halpin, all the money donated to Hopestone will go directly toward supporting those with cancer and their families.

Hopestone's mission is to empower and unite cancer community through education, emotional support, exercise and the arts. For more information about Hopestone, click here.
