CalabasasAreWomen True Friends of the DFCC Photography by James Doss
alabasas residents Lynette Sikand, Ellen Lynch, Teresa Uribe-McGilvray and Laura Pistotnik have friends and family who have struggled with cancer. Fortunately, they received amazing support and treatment at the Providence Saint Joseph Disney Family Cancer Center.
More than 100 local residents attended this event to raise donations and celebrate the cancer survivors who have received care through the world-renowned oncology specialists at the Disney Family Cancer Center. Rex Hoffman, M.D., director of radiation, and Daniel Copps, M.D., dental oncologist at the DFCC, spoke at the engagement.
As a way to give back and help other cancer patients, these four women formed a committee called the Friends of the Disney Family Cancer Center. In April, in recognition of Oral, Head & Neck Cancer Awareness Month, they hosted a fundraising event at Casa Del Cielo, home of Lynette and Mark Sikand on Park Vicente in Calabasas.
