I’ve chosen City of Hope as my nonprofit of the month of May. I was a City of Hope Ambassador last year when I attended BlogHer which focused on women’s cancers. City of Hope, however treats other types of cancers and medical conditions.
City of Hope is a leading research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. For nearly 100 years, our pioneering research has brought the world closer to cures.
City of Hope is an independent medical and research institution as well as a nonprofit organization. Their focus is on the patient. They work to bring together scientists and doctors, which in turn creates treatments that work. They also work with the whole person and include emotional, spiritual, social as well as physical treatment. Clinical trials, screenings, treatments and rehabilitation are available for many diseases and cancers through City of Hope.
On June 11th, the Connected to Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge will take place in Nashville. Vince Gill, Dierks Bentley and David Nail will join a star-studded roster of country music’s hottest performers, sports personalities will take part in this event to raise money for City of Hope. This is the 21st year of this event.
This year, City of Hope is offering two lucky winners the once-in-a-lifetime chance to become â€œdraft picksâ€ for the Grand Ole Opry and After MidNite with Blair Garner teams by entering the â€œConnected to Hope Celebrity Softball Challengeâ€ contest and sharing their story of how they are connected to City of Hope. â€œConnected to Hopeâ€ stories can be based on a personal connection to, or treatment at, City of Hope; a connection via research and therapies developed at City of Hope and in use worldwide; or an emotional connection to City of Hope’s mission to prevent and cure devastating illnesses.
