City Of Hope At BlogHer10

During BlogHer10 I was proud to sport my City Of  Hope button. I gave out buttons to so many bloggers that I lost count. When I did, I was able to tell them why I’m All In for the City of Hope Women’s Cancer’s Movement and am a City of Hope Ambassador.

Women and even the few men I met were willing and eager to support City of Hope as it raises money for research, provides information about breast and gynecological cancers and seeks to raise the number of survivors with these types of cancers. City of Hope also provides state of the art treatment for women’s cancers at their hospital in California.

When I gave out the I’m All In buttons and cards for City of Hope, some people shared their stories of being a survivor, of losing a loved one or knowing someone currently being treated for a type of women’s cancer. It was touching to have people open up to me through the this opportunity of working with City of Hope.

A number of tweets went out to share about City of Hope and I thank those that did that. You can find them by doing a Twitter Search for City of Hope.

I have a few photos of me at BlogHer10 wearing my I’m All In button, but it’s somewhat hard to see (no closeups for me!):

I had the opportunity to interview Robyn Wright from Robyn’s Online World about her mother’s experience with breast cancer and her first mammogram:

Please follow City of Hope on Twitter and on FaceBook to see what how you can help further.

A $30 donation from Mom Central will be made to City of Hope for my blog posts. I’ve asked for the $30 Sephora gift card to be donated as well. If it is not, I will donate it to a local breast cancer support group.

    I think it’s great that you are being supportive!
    My 77 yr. old mom is a 23 yr. breast cancer survivor! Early detection is key!!

  2. Love this cause. My aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer almost exactly seven years ago. My family did not want to tell me at the time since I was almost due with my first child. I have the button you gave me and need to follow the instructions since I want to help. Hoping it isn’t too late.

    Early detection is key Tina. It’s also important to get the word out to those that are fearful of getting tested or can’t afford it, that there’s help out there for them.

    I’m so happy to hear about your mother being a survivor!
