Join PACI, the Iranian Student Group at UCLA (ISG), with Barbara as Cancer survivors and patients of all ages as well as college students mode clothing designs by Ralph Lauren, Sophia Nubes ALANGOO, and NICNAK.

In 2006, Mrs. Hoori Sadler established the Persian American Cancer Institute, a non-profit, non-denominational organization. Mrs. Sadler, a cancer survivor, and her organization aim to reduce the impact of cancer today and eliminate the threat of cancer tomorrow. In the Persian culture, cancer is looked upon as a taboo, a shameful death sentence. The physical survival of cancer is only part of the battle; there is also an emotional, torturous, lonely journey that one usually has to endure.
