On Being Remembered

Manuel Espinosa
“City of Hope gave me my life back. With young children, I am taking advantage of this blessing I was given. I’m not just living, I’m thriving.”
—Legacy of Hope Society members Manuel and Adriana Espinosa with their children Julian and Cristian
Chuck and Eileen O’Shea
“City of Hope is a place that saves lives. I know, because I’m one of the people whose life they’ve saved.”
—Legacy of Hope Society members Chuck and Eileen O’Shea
Carlotta Glackin, Ph.D.
“I know how hard it is to get funding. I have spent most of my career in the lab at City of Hope working with superb graduate students. Having been a patient, too, I want to focus on the next generation and ensure that City of Hope continues to be a research and treatment leader. My gift through my estate to fund scholarships for graduate students will help ensure what I’ve achieved will live on.”
—Legacy of Hope Society member Dr. Carlotta Glackin
Nancy Jo Flint
“Giving is a legacy that continues from generation to generation and one that provides satisfaction you can’t get anywhere else. I consider my contributions, financial and personal, to City of Hope to be among the most important accomplishments of my life.”
—Legacy of Hope Society member Nancy Jo Flint
Dick and Carole Spezzano
“With a charitable gift annuity, we have it all – an attractive return and lower taxes – in addition to helping City of Hope.”
—Legacy of Hope Society members Dick and Carole Spezzano

None of City of Hope’s founders could have possibly imagined the impact they would have over time.

In your own unique way, you also live a life of impact, making a difference to those around you and, through your support, to City of Hope.

Even with all you’ve accomplished, there is an opportunity to have a greater impact. You have the chance to be remembered as someone who helped ensure that City of Hope’s innovative research and compassionate patient care will be available until the day cures for cancer, diabetes and other diseases are discovered.

Including a gift to City of Hope in your will or trust or by beneficiary designation is an opportunity to communicate your values and your dreams for the kind of future you hope your children and grandchildren will inherit. We hope you will join the many Legacy of Hope Society members who have made a gift to City of Hope in their will, trust, by beneficiary designation or with a life income gift.

Benefits to You
