Wall of Hope Past Participants

The Wall of Hope photography exhibition was an idea born from the Kapiolani staff as a way to share stories of patients who have endured and – more importantly – overcome a health crisis with current patients and their families as they brave their own medical journeys.

Since its creation in 2011, the Wall of Hope has featured more than 200 patients, ranging from infants to adults. Below is a gallery of past participants and links to their inspiring stories of hope.
