Community Outreach: City of Hope

City of Hope is a new model of cancer center, focused on rapidly transforming scientific discoveries into better treatments and better prevention strategies for cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Designated as a comprehensive cancer center, the highest recognition bestowed by the National Cancer Institute, City of Hope is also a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, with research and treatment protocols that advance care throughout the nation.

The Chicago office of tvsdesign has supported City of Hope for many years through participation in the Chicago Construction and Real Estate Council, contributing time, talent and financial support to the fundraising efforts for the annual Spirit of Life Award Dinner. 

This year, Shawn Brasfield, Director of Graphic Design at tvsdesign, has donated this painting to City of Hope's silent auction to assist in their fundraising efforts. The painting shows the multiplicity of those effected by cancer, and the solidarity in support of each other and for a cure - their hands join in the circles with the hearts, hopeful for an ideal world without this terrible disease. Shawn's inspirational painting reflects the spirit of hope that unites the research associates, scientists and medical professionals as they work to find cures, save lives and transform the future of health.
