John Wayne Cancer Institute at Saint John's Health Center

The Los Angeles Sparks, the John Wayne Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society have teamed up to put a “full court press” on cancer, and would like to remind women of the importance of breast exams and mammogram screenings. With education and medical research breakthroughs, breast cancer doesn’t have to be the second leading cause of death among women.  Join us in raising awareness and support for a cause that’s close to everyone’s heart.

About the John Wayne Cancer Institute at Saint John’s Health Center

For more than 30 years, the John Wayne Cancer Institute (JWCI) at Saint John’s Health Center has been a leader in breakthrough cancer research. Discoveries made by JWCI’s physicians and scientists have fundamentally changed the way cancer is detected, diagnosed and treated around the world. JWCI is home to the Margie Petersen Breast Center, one of the nation’s top facilities for breast cancer care and research. Doctors are exploring new ways to detect and identify breast cancer earlier and to treat it more effectively. They are also researching genetic and environmental factors that could result in novel therapies, and someday, even breast cancer prevention.
