The Pink Channel Delivers Hope

 
 
Time is precious for patients battling cancer.

 

We thank our partners at The Pink Channel and appreciate the support of their listeners who “pink” with us each day. As supporters of City of Hope, you are funding research that helps patients manage and ultimately conquer cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Together our efforts will save lives and improve the quality of life for patients and their families. Through your support, and the persistence and determination of City of Hope’s researchers, we can better understand the intricacies of cancer that will ultimately lead to its cure.

Every discovery we make and new treatment we develop gives patients the chance to live longer, better and more fully. This research is already making a difference around the world.

City of Hope and Cancer

Discoveries happen at City of Hope because we foster an environment that supports intellectual creativity and freedom – the kind of thinking that enables us to redefine the future of medicine. With an urgency driven as much by compassion as intellectual curiosity, City of Hope has pioneered some of the most important scientific advances of the past century, including these research and treatment milestones:
 
  • A growing number of important cancer treatments used today are based on research pioneered by City of Hope scientists , including the drugs Herceptin, Rituxan, Avastin and Erbitux. This research continues each day with the hope of finding additional treatments aimed at finding a cure.
 
  • Last year, City of Hope conducted more than 300 studies enrolling more than 5,000 patients. Clinical trials allow patients to benefit from new treatments.
 
  • City of Hope surgeons were among the first to utilize robotic technology for the treatment of cancer and are continually recognized as being leaders in number of procedures performed annually using this sophisticated technology.
 
  • An early pioneer in bone marrow transplantation , City of Hope has performed more than 8,600 bone marrow and stem cell transplants and maintains one of the largest, most successful programs of its kind in the world.
 
  • City of Hope researchers are expanding their investigations of aromatase inhibitors. The chemicals, which occur naturally in certain foods such as grapes and mushrooms, have been shown to slow the production of estrogen, which can stimulate the growth of breast cancer. Having demonstrated in the laboratory that some edible mushrooms, as well as red grape juice and other grape products, can suppress aromatase activity in breast cancer tumors, the research team is now working to isolate and identify the aromatase inhibiting substance in mushrooms.
 
  • City of Hope is studying the effectiveness of several new chemotherapy options for treating women with recurrent ovarian cancer . City of Hope is collaborating with the National Cancer Institute on clinical trials of new ovarian cancer drugs.
 
  • City of Hope is actively conducting research to improve quality of life for breast cancer patients during treatment, rehabilitation and continuing care. These quality-of-life research efforts address the patient’s physical, psychological, social and spiritual well-being.
 
  • City of Hope is studying a type of lung cancer screening for smokers and former smokers in an effort to detect early signs of lung cancer in both women and men.
 
  • City of Hope’s Sheri & Les Biller Patient and Family Resource Center assists patients and families facing cancer and other life-threatening diseases. It is a uniquely comprehensive model that integrates and expands a wide range of important patient support services, including health education, psychological services, healing arts programs and end-of-life and bereavement care programs.
