City of Hope researcher Christopher Sistrunk, Ph.D., wants to engender more trust among minority communities while making sure they get the information and screenings necessary to live healthier lives. . He’s also deeply committed to making sure young black men see in him a path toward success that isn’t shown often in film, television or social media. “What I want to show is that you have a better opportunity to get out with something other than sports,” he said. “I go places and get high-fives and hugs, like I’m LeBron James, because they’ve never seen a black guy in a lab coat that was real.” The sky is the limit for children in underserved communities — and Dr. Sistrunk wants to make sure they know it. . Follow the link in our bio, “Showing Communities Another Way,” to read more about Dr. Sistrunk and his mission to give back to underserved communities. #STEM #BlackHistoryMonth

Two years ago, a stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis put Wendy Clements’ lifelong dream of decorating a #RoseParade float in jeopardy. Doctors gave her less than 12 months to live. Yet, here she is with her husband Tim, decorating City of Hope’s #HarmonyofHope float. Together, they traveled 2,554 miles from Catawba, NC to Irwindale, CA to fulfill her dream. On Jan. 1, when Harmony of Hope glides along the parade route, the Clements can sit back, watch and proudly say, “We did it.” #TheMelodyofLife Photos courtesy of @raulromerophoto

At 14, Nicole Schulz was a girl on the go, a popular cheerleader who loved surfing, skateboarding and rodeo riding. Then she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia — and even that couldn’t stop her. After treatment, which left her with just an inch of hair, she entered the Miss Teen California competition and won. But #cancer wasn’t done with her. During her reigning year, she suffered a severe relapse, and the treatment that saved her life also produced some serious side effects — impairment to her heart, immune system, reproductive system and cognitive abilities. It also caused life-threatening graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), an autoimmune condition that has damaged her digestive system, connective tissue and joints. Yet that still hasn’t stopped her. Today, at 27, while dealing with all of these conditions, she works as a patient advocate and fundraiser for City of Hope, traveling the country and giving speeches on behalf of children with cancer. This #GivingTuesday, you can help more patients like Nicole by donating to City of Hope. Every dollar you give will be multiplied by five, up to $100,000 by GOJO, the inventors of PURELL products. Donate now at CityofHope.org/GivingTuesday (link in bio).
Year after year, funds raised through the @PinkPatchProject have fueled our research to eradicate breast cancer.
