My first contact with City of Hope was in the early 1960s when I was in my 20s. A friend of my husband had tuberculosis and lived at City of Hope for about six months. We visited him at the Duarte campus and were impressed at the care he received. Our friend is alive and well, and I am told he is also a supporter of City of Hope.

As a donor, I really enjoy the special event gatherings where the doctors and researchers talk about their projects. I am confident that if it is possible to find cures for the most serious illnesses, City of Hope will be at the forefront of these discoveries.

I believe that supporting City of Hope is the best way to help realize cures for cancer and other serious diseases, and to help provide the best care for those that suffer.

You save lives! Our donation dollars are wisely spent and provide needed research for treatments and cures of our most deadly diseases. You also provide a wonderful environment for those doctors and scientists to blossom and the patients being treated there.
