In May of 1992, my mother passed away from complications of an extremely virulent non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Though she had no chance of survival, at least she had the privilege of working through her situation with City of Hope — which, through their involvement with truly frightening conditions like cancer, etc., gave her some peace — and helped me see that there were people out there who really care about the person, not only the medical aspect and making a profit off of it.

I believe that by supporting City of Hope I am helping to provide compassionate, meaningful, personal care and spiritual support for those dealing with life-threatening and essence-robbing conditions. I believe in City of Hope’s work to speed new research to help cure or at least reduce the severity of these conditions.
