FIVEPOINT JOINS OUR MISSION TO END CANCER

City of Hope is sending the iconic Great Park Balloon in Irvine, Calif., into the sky with a message of hope for ending the disease that affects 1 in 3 Americans in their lifetime. The Great Park Balloon is wrapped with a simple, yet powerful message to “Rise Above Cancer.” The initiative, co-led by City of Hope and FivePoint, is a joint expression of optimism for Orange County’s 3.2 million residents and a national call to action to come together to eradicate cancer.

The inspirational message will remain on The Great Park Balloon until the end of September. It was designed by Orange County artist Meredith Moody, whose mother, aunt and brother each had cancer.

Stories of HOPE

Orange County artists partnered with City of Hope Orange County cancer survivors to capture their impactful stories of resolve. Five artists translated four patients’ survival stories into a unique work of art on nearly seven-foot-tall letters spelling the word HOPE. Each letter tells a survivor’s unique journey. Together, the letters illustrate City of Hope Orange County’s mission to make lives whole again and convey the healing power of art.
