Councils and Industries Visionaries of industry founded City of Hope in 1913 when garment workers and manufacturers in downtown Los Angeles gathered funds to purchase the land on which the Medical Center now exists. This concept of industry partnership at City of Hope is unique among philanthropies nationwide. For nearly 30 years, these industries have been instrumental to the success of City of Hope, raising hundreds of millions of dollars to support cancer research and treatment.

Marshall's Roundup #1628

Marshall Cotta, diagnosed with hydrocephalus before the age of one,was brought to City of Hope in November 1998 by his parents Pam and Jeff.

“There was so much optimism, support and professionalism at the City of Hope. Plus they provided a wonderful level of love, attention and flexibility,” says Pam. “Jeff and I found ourselves saying over and over again that we couldn’t believe the quality of care and concern for Marshall that we felt in every department at City of Hope.”

All the love and support paid off. Marshall’s cancer is now in check. Marshall still goes to City of Hope for regular follow-up MRIs to make sure his cancer is not returning. So far, all of the results have brought good news.

The Cottas will be forever grateful and always support the miraculous research and patient care at City of Hope. Inspired by their son's lifesaving experience with City of Hope, Jeff and Pam Cotta founded Marshall's Roundup in 2001, a group designed to raise money for pediatric neuro-oncology research and other life-threatening diseases at City of Hope.
