Newsroom Knot Forgotten offers way to honor loved ones Posted on Dec. 1, 2023 As the holiday season unfolds, many individuals seek meaningful ways to commemorate loved ones who have faced or are currently battling various medical challenges, including cancer.Through the CoxHealth Foundation’s Knot Forgotten program, ribbon “knots” (bows) can be purchased in honor or in memory of loved ones. Bows were originally procured for patients affected by cancer but can include any cause close to one’s heart.Donors can purchase bows with a card attached including their loved one’s name and a personalized message on the CoxHealth Foundation’s website or at the Allenbrand Resource Center inside Hulston Cancer Center. Small bows are available for $10, and large bows for $50. Bows come in a variety of colors, each symbolizing something different, including gold bows in honor of a loved one; red bows in memory; and silver bows in celebration of a caregiver.In addition to the meaningful gesture of honoring loved ones, 100% of proceeds will benefit local cancer patients through the Glauser Oncology Fund’s Patient Advocacy program. This program helps patients by providing resources, care grants and more. Bows will adorn trees across CoxHealth’s campuses, including the Hulston Cancer Center lobby and the Cox South lobby.In addition to Springfield campuses, the Knot Forgotten program is underway at Cox Medical Center Branson, Cox Barton County Hospital and Cox Monett Hospital.To honor a loved one or for more information, please visit www.coxhealthfoundation.com/event/knot-forgotten, or call 417-269-7150.
