The James Hope Award


In the early 1990s, Alfred Tibor was recruited by Dr. Author G. James to create an inspirational art piece that stands in front of the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. The statute was created to show hope to cancer patients and was thereby named Hope because every day OSUCCC - James staff and faculty work towards that hope. The James Hope Award was created in 2009 in recognition of the community’s commitment to support exceptional cancer care, education and research. Criteria for the award include advocacy, collaboration, innovation and leadership. The award is named in honor of the Statue of Hope.

Created in 2009, The James Hope Award honors excellence in cancer care advocacy, collaboration, innovation and leadership.

The award is named in honor of the OSUCCC – James’ inspiring Statue of Hope, created by sculptor Alfred Tibor and first dedicated on the hospital’s front lawn in 1993.

Rep. Pat Tiberi (R-OH) was chosen to receive the 2009 James Hope Award based on his leadership and support of the OSUCCC – James in congressional actions.

Alan W. Brass was also selected in 2009, based on his strong leadership as a member of The Ohio State University Board of Trustees and his service as chair of the board’s Medical Affairs Committee. His support and advocacy for construction of a new cancer hospital and the entire expansion initiative will improve countless lives for generations to come.

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio was given the 2010 James Hope Award for his leadership in helping patients gain access to lifesaving clinical trials through his sponsorship of the Access to Cancer Clinical Trials Act, which helps hundreds of patients receive world-class treatment that previously would have been out of their financial reach.
