My Story ...
In the fall of 2016 my world came to a screeching halt... Three words that forever changed my life, “you have cancer!”
My world was flipped upside down. Scared, angry, frustrated and so many other feelings go through one’s mind. During the ensuing months, as my treatments started, I began to feel the power of hope, confidence and peace again.
The oncology team at Cedars Cancer Center was there for me through thick and thin, the ups and downs. I never felt alone. I knew I had the world’s best cancer team right by my side as I embarked on this life changing journey for the following year.
I write to you today as a cancer survivor thanks to the amazing team of doctors and nurses and staff at the Cedars Cancer Center.

Oral Health ...
As a periodontist, when I was going through my treatments, I noticed first-hand the general lack of education on oral health amongst the patients. I witnessed a patient’s life saving chemo treatment getting postponed because of a periodontal abscess, in an already immunocompromised patient. I witnessed how patients struggled with oral rehabilitation after their cancer treatment.
As a result, my husband and I created a fund at Cedars Cancer Center Foundation to raise money towards periodontal education and rehabilitation for patients undergoing chemo treatment and cancer survivors. We also decided to provide free of charge comprehensive periodontal care for their patients at our private practice whenever it affects their chemo treatments.
we can help make a difference
and save lives!
As you all may know, Cedars Cancer Center has been relying heavily on donations to provide the state-of-the-art best cancer treatments for their patients. The government funding is simply not enough for the level of care they provide.
Today, as hospitals around the world are struggling with supplies and equipment during this very difficult COVID-19 pandemic, Cedars Cancer Center is also struggling to continue to provide lifesaving cancer treatments for patients.
Since we are all currently under the stay-at-home government advisory, Dr. Kiarash & I decided the best way we could help is to raise funds for the Cedars Cancer Center through providing CE courses for the dental healthcare professionals who are also in the same predicament as us.
In order to register for our upcoming webinars, we kindly request you make a donation to the Cedars Cancer Center Foundation for each webinar you wish to attend.
