Every dollar you give goes directly to fighting cancer: Every rider pays 100% of their own way out of their own pocket. So every tax deductible dollar you give goes directly to City of Hope.
City of Hope developed the technology behind four of the world's most widely used drugs to fight cancer: Drugs like Herceptin, Avastin, Rituxan, and Erbitux that are used worldwide to fight and treat cancer.
When you give to City of Hope, you give directly to the source: Because other charity organizations like Livestrong and Susan G Komen support research at City of Hope, supporting the Fireflies West removes the middle man and goes straight into life-saving research.
City of Hope has the best overall outcome of any U.S. treatment center for Leukemia and other Blood Cancers: They have successfully performed more than 11,000 stem cell transplants, among the highest in the nation. Even though City of Hope patients are the sickest, they survive the longest.
