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
  • Surgery is vital in the treatment of cancer – it’s used to help diagnose, treat and even prevent the disease – so a new colorectal cancer study linking a decrease in surgeries for advanced cancer to increased survival rates may raise more questions than it answers for some patients. The surgery-and-surviv...
  • Age is the single greatest risk factor overall for cancer; our chances of developing the disease rise steeply after age 50. For geriatric oncology nurse Peggy Burhenn, the meaning is clear: Cancer is primarily a geriatric condition. That’s why she is forging inroads in the care of older adults with cancer. Burh...
  • One of American’s great sportscasters, Stuart Scott, passed away from recurrent cancer of the appendix at the young age of 49. His cancer was diagnosed when he was only 40 years old. It was found during an operation for appendicitis. His courageous fight against this disease began in 2007, resumed again with an...
  • When Homa Sadat found a lump in her breast at age 27, her gynecologist told her what many doctors say to young women: You’re too young to have breast cancer. With the lump dismissed as a harmless cyst, she didn’t think about it again until she was at a restaurant six months later and felt […]
  • What most people call a “bone marrow transplant” is not actually a transplant of bone marrow; it is instead the transplantation of what’s known as hematopoietic stem cells. Such cells are often taken from bone marrow, but not always. Hematopoietic stem cells are simply immature cells that can ...
  • Doctors have long known that women with a precancerous condition called atypical hyperplasia have an elevated risk of breast cancer. Now a new study has found that the risk is more serious than previously thought. Hyperplasia itself is an overgrowth of cells; atypical hyperplasia is an overgrowth in a distorted...
  • Don’t kid yourself. Just because it’s mid-January doesn’t mean it’s too late to make resolutions for a happier, and healthier, 2015. Just consider them resolutions that are more mature than those giddy, sometimes self-deluded, Jan. 1 resolutions. To that end, we share some advice from Cary A. Presant, M.D., an ...
  • Sales and marketing executive Jim Murphy first came to City of Hope in 2002 to donate blood for a friend who was being treated for esophageal cancer. The disease is serious. Although esophageal cancer accounts for only about 1 percent of cancer diagnoses in the U.S., only about 20 percent of patients survive at...
  • Aaron Bomar and his family were celebrating his daughter’s 33rd birthday in September 2014 when he received alarming news: According to an X-ray taken earlier that day at an urgent care facility, he had a node on his aorta and was in danger of an aneurysm. Bomar held hands with his wife and daughter and s...
  • Explaining a prostate cancer diagnosis to a young child can be difficult — especially when the cancer is incurable. But conveying the need for prostate cancer research, as it turns out, is easily done. And that leads to action. Earlier this year, Gerald Rustad, 71, who is living with a very aggressive form of m...
  • Cancer and its treatment can create unexpected daily challenges for patients. Side effects from chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy as well as the disease itself can cause difficulty in everything from speech to movement to eating. When this happens, rehabilitation is vital; it helps patients restore th...
  • Betsy Sauer and her four daughters share plenty in common. They’re smart and successful.  They’re funny, ranging from wryly witty to wickedly hilarious. Their hobbies tend toward the active and adventurous: hiking, rock climbing, skiing, swimming, fishing, kayaking, yoga and horseback riding. Also, they take he...
  • Flu season is upon us, and few people should take the risk of infection more seriously than cancer patients and their loved ones and caregivers. With the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warning of widespread influenza outbreaks, it’s clear that flu season – and the associated risks – won’t en...
  • HIV/AIDS researchers are determined not only to cure the disease, but to develop ever-more-effective treatments until that ultimate goal is reached. In 2015, they will gain ground in both endeavors. In search of a cure: Stem cell and gene therapy One of the most promising prospects for curing HIV is to recreate...
  • Every year, researchers make gains in the understanding of cancer, and physicians make gains in the treatment of cancer. As a result, every year, more cancer patients survive their disease. In those ways, 2015 will be no different. What will be different are the specific research discoveries and the specific ad...
