Through collaboration, commitment and teamwork the Integrated Cancer Institute will bring the future of cancer care to the San Fernando Valley.
Cancer Support Community – Redondo Beach offers a free program for cancer patients, and their families and loved-ones.

Since July 2015, Khemo Buddy’s has graciously helped Breastlink patients through treatment. Khemo Buddy’s was founded by Kym Keyes, a breast cancer survivor who often experienced discomfort, anxiety and loneliness during chemotherapy sessions. To help patients in similar situations, Khemo Buddy’s provide gift bags containing snacks, blankets, activities and other small comforts to help breast cancer patients through their chemotherapy sessions. They have gifted many of these care packages to our patients.
