ABOUT PACI: 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.  PACI aspires to pave the road to healing and serve as a reminder that you are not alone, and that there is indeed life after cancer.  Our organization strongly believes that love, compassion and hope are vital to the fight against cancer.   PACI strives to heal not only the debilitating cancer, but also the fragile heart and human spirit that weaken during such a traumatic process.  With the support and endorsement of some of the best known cancer institutes, and the recruitment of community leaders, artists, activists, survivors and their families, our organization is determined to make a difference.

ABOUT ISG: The Iranian Student Group at UCLA intends to unify the Iranian community on campus in pursuit of a deeper sense of cultural, historical and communal identity. We hope to provide a forum, composed of individuals concerned with Iran and the Iranian diasporas irrelevant of background, where students can critically educate one another through educational, cultural, and social events. Los Angeles boasts the largest community of Iranians outside of Iran and the group assumes the responsibility to provide a proud, informed voice to link student concerns and experiences with those in the broader community, California, Iran and beyond.
