After two bone marrow transplants and tremendous perseverance, Nicole is back to living the life she once knew – and making up for lost time.

Every patient is different, with different needs. Our entire team works together to bring you precise, state-of-the-art chemo, radiation and transplant options that will deliver the best outcome for you.
 
We were among the first to build and develop a bone marrow transplant program which has performed more than 12,000 procedures since 1976. City of Hope has been recognized for superior survival outcomes for ten consecutive years - the only transplant center in the United States with such an achievement.
