 Cancer Support Community Los Angeles (CSCLA) presented its Annual Gala, Thursday, May 18, 2023 at The New Mart in downtown Los Angeles. This special evening benefitted the comprehensive free of charge services for cancer patients and their families that CSCLA has provided since 1982. The Cancer Support Community was founded on the principle that no one should face cancer alone® and is committed to working alongside the medical community and community-based providers to ensure that the diverse populations of Los Angeles have access to the quality cancer care that they deserve.
Diana Maria Riva emceed the evening. Ms. Riva has starred as "Detective Ana Perez" alongside Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini in Netflix's hit series Dead to Me, and can be seen next in Netflix's upcoming series Glamorous.  Mai Bloomfield, American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and cancer survivor provided the entertainment. Mai is a founding member of the indie folk-pop band Raining Jane and will be joining Jason Mraz on tour
this summer. 
The evening of achievement and celebration honored Dr. Jennifer Linehan, Urologic Oncologist at Saint John’s Health Center, and Director of Urology Translational Research, and Associate Professor, at  Saint John's Cancer Institute, with the “Harold H. Benjamin Innovation Award” named for the founder of CSCLA, for her compassionate cancer care and her significant impact on the community-at-large; and Dr. Raul Mena (retired), Past Medical Director of The Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center, at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank with “The Wellness Award” for his visionary leadership in ensuring that cancer care services are provided for all under one roof in a community based hospital setting.   

We honor the work of Cancer Support Community Los Angeles and its 41 years of existence, providing free of charge services to cancer patients and their families, including children. Drs. Linehan and Mena are two extraordinary, compassionate physicians who have demonstrated over the course of their careers the importance of caring for the whole person and the whole family during a cancer diagnosis,” said Julia Forth, CEO, CSCLA. Both Dr. Raul Mena and Dr. Jennifer Linehan exemplify the best of the best in whole person care.”
