Help us bring support and awareness to the diverse group of people who receive care through our services at Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters and the Newborn ICU at Progress West. Supporters will have the opportunity to purchase a ribbon in the color of their choice which will be displayed outside of either Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital or Progress West Hospital. On the day of the event, you will have the opportunity to write your message or name of acknowledgement on your sign.

As we build our Ribbon of Hope, our community partners in health services and various other vendors will be on site to meet you! We will have activities for kids, food vendors and community engagement and education opportunities. The event is free to attend and family friendly! Advanced ribbon purchase has closed, but Ribbons of Hope will be available for purchase on the day of the event. Color options will be limited.
