City of Hope, one of the nation’s largest and most impactful cancer and diabetes treatment and research campuses, opened its doors once again to this group, allowing participants to see and hear personally about the lifesaving discoveries, treatments, and breakthroughs that could someday better the lives of the millions of people affected by these diseases.
This was the second year Kelley has participated in the tour, which was organized by the Women’s Health Initiative. Kelley, a member of the National Executive Board of the International Home Furnishings Chapter of City of Hope says she was thrilled to see several familiar faces from the industry, and a few new ones joining the cause as well.
“Diseases like cancer and diabetes affect everyone in some way,” said Kelley. “When united, the home furnishings industry has a lot of market power and by getting behind this initiative, we can make a major impact in the lives of so many.”
