About City of Hope
Leading research, treatment and education center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases. Designated as a comprehensive cancer center, the highest honor bestowed by the National Cancer Institute, and a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, City of Hope's research and treatment protocols advance care throughout the nation. Imagine if women could actually do something to reduce their breast cancer risk. City of Hope not only imagined it ― they proved it worked. Research led by City of Hope's Leslie Bernstein, Ph.D. broke new ground by establishing that regular long-term exercise reduces the risk of breast cancer, the most common of women's cancers. In fact, women who exercised three hours each week while teenagers cut their breast cancer risk by 30%.
