Congrats to the 2015 Hope Award Winners! We look forward to seeing you all next year at the 2016 Hope Awards.
Established in 1999, the Hope Awards Celebration was originally founded in honor of Cindy Acree, who in 1991 underwent brain surgery for epilepsy and suffered a stroke. Despite her medical hurdles, Cindy exhibited tenacity and bravery throughout her recovery, and she continues to work tirelessly to promote awareness for neurological conditions. Ms. Acree is a former Colorado State Representative, past chairman of the CNI Board of Directors and a major contributor to CNI’s volunteer successes. The Hope Award is named for her daughter, Hope, another example of Cindy’s miracles.
Support for this event enables integrated, collaborative care, state-of-the-art treatment, patient assistance, outpatient rehabilitation services, support groups, chronic disease management training, community education programs, cutting edge research, ongoing publications and more.
