Participate in City of Hope’s Walk for Hope Nationally Presented by Staples in Philadelphia and help discover new treatments and ultimately a cure for women suffering from breast and gynecological cancers. In 2011, there will be more than 290,000 new cases of women’s cancers in the U.S. City of Hope knows that fighting one woman’s cancer at a time is not enough. Walk for Hope Philadelphia, held Sept. 18 at Campbell’s Field, supports City of Hope’s multidisciplinary Women’s Cancers Program and is part of the nation’s only series of walks that benefit research, treatment and education programs for cancers unique to women.
