Bridge of Hope
A Celebration of Survivorship
The Bridge of Hope represents the spirit and celebration of cancer survivorship in an iconic Buffalo location.
Life after cancer treatment can be challenging. We want to recognize every cancer survivor’s journey with bells hung on a symbolic Bridge of Hope at Canalside.
Let the sound of the bells unite us in Roswell Park’s mission to understand, prevent and cure cancer.
"I want you to know how meaningful this event was. I applaud this project and hope that other survivors take part and enjoy the feeling as much as I did."
The Roswell Park Bridge of Hope at Canalside is a place where all cancer patients can hang a bell in recognition of their cancer fight and survivorship.
44 Prime St. | Buffalo, NY 14202

In honor of our survivors, Roswell Park Cancer Institute is holding bell-hanging ceremonies every other week. Roswell Park provides transportation to the Bridge of Hope for patients participating in the bi-weekly event. Shuttle service to Canalside departs from the hospital main entrance.
