Horses and Hope

A new initiative of Horses and Hope will go beyond breast cancer
to serve both men and women with mobile screening and education
for many cancers. Kentucky ranks first in the nation for cancer deaths,
and has the second highest incidence rate for all cancer sites.
This new prevention and early detection program
will focus on Kentuckians most at risk.

How You Can Support HORSES and HOPE

Join First Lady Jane Beshear in raising $1 million to support the new Horses and Hope Cancer Screening Van. Gifts of all amounts can help reduce the burden of cancer in Kentucky through prevention and early detection.

Your donation will support:

  • community screenings to detect cancer in early stages when treatment can be most successful
  • public education to encourage healthy lifestyles that will prevent cancer
  • patient navigation to access cancer resources in local communities
  • cancer outreach programs for underserved populations

Individuals may contribute online at or send a check payable to Horses and Hope to the Kentucky Cancer Program. Gifts are tax-deductible and will be deposited into an account designated exclusively for the screening van.

Contributions of $25,000 and above will be acknowledged on the van’s exterior design. Donors at the level of $100,000 or more will be noted as project sponsors.
