Our community


You’re part of a community from the moment you walk in the door

Being diagnosed with cancer can be an overwhelming experience—between learning about the disease, choosing a treatment plan, managing side effects and balancing the needs and responsibilities of everyday life. Our Community section is designed to give cancer patients and caregivers resources, information and educational tools so they can better navigate the journey and make informed decisions about the road ahead. You will also learn more about how City of Hope was founded, and why, and read about our leaders and how we are giving back to the community. 

After a cancer diagnosis, no matter what type of cancer you have, we invite you to become part of our community. Join oncologists, clinicians, loved ones, current patients and cancer survivors who are all here to support you during your cancer care journey.

Make sure to check out the Cancer Center 360 blog, which features information on cancer-related news, developments and tips on a wide range of cancer-related topics.

"My experience was consistently empowering. I was part of the decision-making process at every step of the way. My care team was exactly that—a team of caring people—and I made lifelong friends with patients and employees. My naturopathic provider and my dietitian helped me manage and prevent side effects, taught me how to shop for and cook healthier foods, and recommended supplements to take during and after treatment to help my recovery."
