City of Hope posts higher breast cancer survival rates at all stages

October 9, 2018 | by City of Hope

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so we will be showcasing our treatment approach to breast cancer and how it benefits our patients. City of Hope is proud of having higher survival rates at all stages of breast cancer than those of the Los Angeles Registry of the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program. In fact, in Stage 4 breast cancer, we had a nearly 50 percent increase in survival.
Underlying our success is the Women’s Center at City of Hope where we practice our comprehensive treatment model in which each patient gets tailored therapy guided by her unique molecular- and genome-driven diagnosis and personal, psychosocial, lifestyle and cultural needs.
At the center, women also have access to clinical trials, evidence-based disease management approaches, and long-term follow-up programs to help them and their families manage the process of treatment and post-treatment.
By improving outcomes in breast cancer treatment, City of Hope is expanding what’s possible with therapy. For the full report, please download the City of Hope Breast Cancer Outcomes Survey .
