25 to 5 Changing Cancer Forever

City of Hope’s dynamic and innovative approach to research and development has accelerated the traditional "bench to bedside" process for the production of new therapies and treatments from 25 years to as few as five. Out of a desire to support this exceptional institution, we have formed a chartered chapter to promote awareness and raise funds, which we have named "25 to 5: Changing Cancer Forever. We hold 4-5 mixers and a holiday party with young professionals from the greater LA area.

What We Do

The Chapter funds cutting edge cancer and diabetes research at City of Hope. We are currently funding Nanomedicine for a Universal Brain Tumor Vaccine research.
