For the 45th year, City of Hope will be participating in the annual Tournament of Roses Parade. This year's theme for the Rose Parade is "Echoes of Success." The 2017 float, themed “The Miracle of Science with Soul,” reflects City of Hope’s unique combination of leading-edge research and lifesaving care, a combination that creates second chances for patients suffering from cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases. Patients credit their medical teams for giving them those second chances and a future — inspiring them to continue to have long, successful lives.
This year, seven patients, along with surgeons, physicians and nurses, will be celebrating each other’s successes that were made possible through the selfless contributions of others.
