Frequently Asked Questions

What will Moments of Hope consist of?

  • The first 50 minutes will be a social hour hosted on Remo. During the social hour, you’ll be able to “drop in” on a table of your choice. Tables will be labeled according to Table Captain’s names, but no one is restricted to stay at one table. Feel free to move around, say hi, and make new friends. During the social hour, you will see others and be seen by others (unless you choose to not enable your camera).
  • After the social hour, we’ll provide you with a link to our YouTube Live event. During this event, you will not be seen by anyone. You can still participate in the YouTube chat.
  • During the event, we will have games, a live auction, patient stories, and awards.

Will the event be entirely online?

  • Yes! We have patients, family members, and supporters from all over the globe and a virtual event accommodates the most people at once. We’re happy to answer any questions about accessibility, registration, or event logistics:
