About City of Hope's Women's Cancers Program
City of Hope has a history of innovation — including the technology behind Herceptin, a breakthrough drug for breast cancer.
 
Today, the Women’s Cancers Program at City of Hope brings together experts across disciplines in dynamic collaborations. And special on-site drug manufacturing facilities enable City of Hope to translate discovery into treatment faster and more efficiently.
 
Some exciting areas of research in the Women’s Cancers Program:
  • Seeking new treatments that defeat disease with fewer and milder side effects
  • Developing medicines that target women’s cancers precisely
  • Studying superfoods like mushroom and blueberries as ways to prevent or treat women’s cancers
  • Examining which choices women can make to stop cancer before it ever starts

Circle 1500's January 2013 Breakfast Meeting: Sexuality After Cancer:
“Often a problem; seldom discussed”
 
An information meeting for Circle 1500 was held at City of Hope on September 19, 2013.  Guests and members met the leadership of the Women’s Cancers Program faculty, heard research updates from the Women’s Cancers Program, and had the opportunity to share their experiences with cancer.  Every woman knows someone who has dealt with breast or gynecologic cancer, and treatment and research advances at City of Hope provide promise for the future.  We welcome you to join our group and help to make a difference.

NEWS & UPDATES
  • On Jan. 1, 2015, six City of Hope patients who have journeyed through cancer will welcome the new year with their loved ones atop City of Hope’s Tournament of Roses Parade float. The theme of the float is “Made Possible by HOPE.” The theme of the parade is “Inspiring Stories.” Repr...
  • When 25-year-old Angelina Mattos was diagnosed with Stage 4 oral cancer earlier this year, she learned that her only hope of survival was through the removal of her tongue, a surgery that leaves people without the ability to talk or eat normally, sometimes permanently ending their ability to speak. After hearin...
  • Two years ago, Joselyn Miller and her family sat together as stem cells from her brother’s bone marrow were infused into her – a precious gift of life that the family is excited to have the chance to pass to another patient in need. Today, the stem cell recipient is healthy. Her 23-year-old son Rex, who […...
  • Even as the overall rate of oral cancers in the United States steadily declines, the rate of tongue cancer is increasing — especially among white females ages 18 to 44. An oral cancer diagnosis, although rare, is serious. Only half of the people diagnosed with oral cancer are still alive after five years, accor...
  • Sometimes cancer found in the lungs is not lung cancer at all. It can be another type of cancer that originated elsewhere in the body and spread, or metastasized, to the lungs through the bloodstream or lymphatic system. These tumors are called lung metastases, or metastatic cancer to the lungs, and are not the...
  • When it comes to research into the treatment of hematologic cancers, City of Hope scientists stand out. One study that  they presented this week at the annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology suggests a new standard of care for HIV-associated lymphoma, another offers promise for the treatment of re...
  • Patients with HIV-associated lymphoma may soon have increased access to the current standard of care for some non-HIV infected patients – autologous stem cell transplants. Impressive new data, presented Monday at the annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) in San Francisco, indicate that HIV-...

  • The holidays can create an overwhelming urge to give to people in need — especially to sick children and families spending the holidays in a hospital room. That’s a good thing.

  • Cancer has a way of “talking” to the immune system and corrupting it to work on its own behalf instead of defending the body. Blocking this communication would allow the immune system to see cancer cells for what they are – something to be fought off – and stop them from growing. A breakthrough Scientists [R...
