The City of Hope’s 2009 Spirit of Life award recipients Jim and Cheryl Markham,of Jim Markham Enterprises and founders of Pureology, recently toured the research and treatment facility to kick off their fund raising campaign on behalf of cancer research and awareness. During the tour, the Markhams met with various administrators and medical directors to learn about City of Hope’s recent cancer treatment innovations and survivorship programs. The hospital is conducting studies on the role of genetics in gynecologic cancers, especially ovarian cancer, which has long been a charitable interest of the Markhams. The Spirit of Life Award will be presented July 20 at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas in conjunction with Cosmoprof North America.
