This is my 4th year participating in Yoga for Hope. Yoga for Hope supports City of Hope, an amazing 101-year old organization that conducts innovative, results oriented, patient focused research and treatments for those with cancer, diabetes and HIV/AIDS.
City of Hope has long held compassionate care at the core of our mission, living this credo "There is no profit in curing the body, if, in the process, we destroy the soul."
I first became aware of City of Hope when my uncle's wife, Kris, was in the midst of her cancer treatments. She told me she felt like a full person and not just her disease there. Since doing Yoga for Hope last year, I've lost a dear cousin to cancer who was only 64, and 2 of my closest friends, only in their 40s, have been graciously battling cancer as well. So this cause continues to be personal and very meaningful for me.
Please help me support City of Hope's work. Small donations add up to make a big difference. Just hit the big "Donate" button -- you can't miss it -- and make a tax-deductible donation. It's that easy and it's that important.
