“It’s easy to appreciate what City of Hope does,” a former patient told us, “because you see the results in lives saved.”
We have a single mission that guides everything we’re doing: to combine leading-edge research and innovation with compassionate care to create medical miracles in the fight against cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.
But that mission demands a huge, complex variety of research and treatment programs. It means our world-renowned scientists, physicians and staff are striving constantly to solve an incredibly tough range of scientific challenges.
The results? Breakthrough discoveries, leading-edge treatments, and better outcomes for patients and their families.
The fact we’re able to do any of this is thanks to people like you. Giving City of Hope your support is helping these dedicated people create the advances and breakthroughs offering help to patients and families the world over.
I can’t think of a better way to push toward a cure than by investing in the future of City of Hope.
