Making Strides of Santa Monica

MPBC Breasties

The Margie Petersen Breast Center (MPBC) at Providence Saint John’s Health Center brings you some of the finest breast care in Southern California. Our team wants to change the way women look at their overall  breast health. In preparation for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk hosted by the American Cancer Society to raise awareness and money to fund research, support services, and continue making advancements in early detection methods. We walk to honor our patient's journeys and to encourage individuals to learn more about their personal breast wellness. 

Due to organizations like the American Cancer Society, research is constantly evolving and influencing the way medical professionals diagnose, treat, and follow breast cancer care.  With the development of the Breast Health Clinic, breast cancer patients are being diagnosed and treated faster and more efficiently at the Margie Petersen Breast Center.  Patients are educated on their personal risk factors and navigated through proper screening protocols based on their personal and family history.  In addition to detecting cancer earlier, the Breast Health Clinic opens their doors to any patient with benign conditions or new changes to their breasts that warrants further evaluation.  It is important for women to have a safe place to ask questions and seek medical advice regarding their breast health.

At the Margie Petersen Breast Center, we seek to provide the most advanced and effective breast cancer care to those newly diagnosed.  Our Multidisciplinary Clinic combines the consultations of Surgical Oncology, Medical Oncology, and Radiation Oncology into one sitting.  Relieving the anxiety of multiple appointment times and encouraging communication between providers, the MDC allows medical specialists to effectively consult and devise a personal plan of care for your diagnosis.  At Providence Saint John's Health Center, we are incorporating new technology in the operating room, such as Intraoperative Radiation Therapy, which allows patients quicker recovery times and more freedom to return back to their normal routines.  Our new Director, Dr. Janie Grumley, specializes in Oncoplastic Breast Surgery.  This allows women to feel empowered and beautiful in their own skin by providing more breast conservation options.  In addition, The Margie Petersen Breast Center strives to care for the whole individual by offering genetic counseling, nutritional counseling, on site radiology imaging, mediation, yoga, social work, and psycho-oncology services.

As caregivers of those affected by breast cancer, we walk to support our patient's individual accomplishments and promote their amazing success stories.  Every day we meet strong women and men, whom although faced with a terrible situation, are able to smile and bring joy into our lives.   We walk for them and we walk to continue researching, learning, and promoting breast health care.

Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.

There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.
