Artist: Michael Warrick

The Seed of Hope sculpture is a symbol of hope and healing for patients at the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute.

On each patient’s final day of active treatment, we present him or her with two seed-shaped tokens. One token is placed in the sculpture as a celebration of survivorship. The second token is taken with them to keep or to pass along as a symbol of hope to someone else facing a challenge.

It is our hope that one day, through the power of research-driven treatment, the Seed of Hope will overflow with tokens symbolizing countless survivors who have won the battle against cancer.
