Jim, esophageal cancer survivor

“Cancer is a disease, not a death sentence,” said Jim Murphy, who wasn’t going to let esophageal cancer slow him down. With the encouragement from his doctors at City of Hope, he continued biking and skiing throughout his treatment. Jim chose City of Hope because “what impressed me is the research right here on campus. If they have something experimental, it goes from the researcher, right to the doctor, right to you.” Jim beat his cancer, and today he is still skiing, riding his bike, and working.
