Did you know that each year, more than 290,000 women will be diagnosed with breast and gynecological cancers and more than 67,000 will pass away from these all-too-prevalent cancers?
I lost a dear aunt to cancer almost exactly one year ago, and my grandmother is now dying of cancer as well. Although a solemn subject matter, we all know of someone affected by a women’s cancer and know that patients require strong support networks from friends and family. By lending support to pioneering cancer research and treatment centers such as City of Hope and its women’s cancers initiative, we can contribute to breakthroughs in prevention, treatment and survivorship, demonstrating that we’re “all in,” together.
Based in California, City of Hope’s research advances cancer care globally. City of Hope experts know that fighting one women’s cancer at a time is not enough – that’s why they’ve taken a unique, multidisciplinary approach to improve treatment and survivorship for women with breast and gynecological cancers. The City of Hope women’s cancers program aims to help women live longer, better lives, through compassionate care.

I wrote this while participating in a blogger campaign by Mom Central on behalf of City of Hope and received a $30 Sephora gift card and a $30 donation in my name to City of Hope to facilitate my post.
