CHLA 3

October 6, 2016, is a day that will not be forgotten for many patients and their families at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. What seemed like an ordinary day, turned into a day of fun, laughter and non-stop smiles for patients as they were given the opportunity to be a kid despite their current medical conditions.

Just weeks before this special day, Eleanor Randall and her good friend, Monica Gambee, offered to host a Jackson Pollock-inspired paint party for kids and Eleanor knew that CHLA would be just the place. They thought this would bring joy to the young patients at CHLA, but what they didn’t expect is how much joy they would receive in return.

The morning of the party, the canvas was rolled out on the hospital patio, the paint distributed and the Child Life and Expressive Arts Therapy staff alongside Eleanor and Monica, prepared to brighten the lives of children whose days might otherwise be filled with appointments, tests and treatments.

As the children picked up their brushes and dipped them in paint, their expressions went from curious, to wonderment to pure delight as they were able to let go of everything else for this one moment and participate in an art experience like none-other. When each canvas was laid, kids waited in anticipation for the “1-2-3-GO!” At the ring of “go” (and often before), paint began flying through the air covering the canvas to create a unique piece of art. There was excitement, anticipation and laughter in the process, as children from toddlers to teens created masterpieces.

Eleanor and Monica left the hospital this day with full hearts. Not only for what they had experienced at “The Paint Party,” but for how CHLA was meeting the needs of these young patients through the Expressive Arts and Therapies Program. They received a behind the scenes tour, learning that at CHLA the treatment methods extend beyond medicine. They saw how clinical and non-clinical therapies are incorporated to enhance the care provided to young patients and improve their healing process. Learning that this program is funded only through philanthropy, Eleanor and Monica thought “What Next?”

After the canvases were framed to showcase the masterpieces, they knew what the “next” was. Eleanor and Monica invite  others to “come and see” not only the beautiful pieces of art, but to learn about the impact that could be made through additional funding for the Expressive Arts and Therapies Program. A night of hors d oeuvres, drinks and art created by the children showcased like a fine art gallery at the Randall home, not only spread awareness for CHLA but also raised over $400,000 for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. These special pieces were an expression of joy and excitement and will now bring hope and healing to the patients at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Huntington Hospital’s Jim and Eleanor Randall Breast Center just launched its very first survivorship program that explored cancer-related issues and taught self-care techniques to cancer survivors and caregivers.

The 10-week course, taught by a multidisciplinary team of breast experts, addresses an array of topics including: nutrition and supplements, weight management, improving energy and sleep, coping with stress, post-radiation care, and holistic methods of pain control.

This is another way we treat the whole patient, not just the cancer. That’s the Huntington difference.

For more information, please call (626) 397-2524.

Breast Cancer 101

  • What: A mammogram is an x-ray exam of the breast that’s used to detect and evaluate breast changes – helping diagnose cancer in the early stages, before becoming symptomatic.
  • Who: Women should get a screening mammogram every year starting at the age of 40 (earlier if there is a history of breast cancer in your family).
  • When: Annual mammograms should be continued regardless of a woman’s age, as long as she does not have serious, chronic health problems.
  • Why: Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1990, in part due to screening and early detection.
  • Talk to your doctor about getting a referral for a mammogram today!

The Latest news in breast cancer research

Our physicians attend the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium every year to learn about the latest advances in the treatment of breast cancer.

This past December, an important study was presented called the SOFT (Suppression of Ovarian Function) trial — the results will change the treatment of premenopausal breast cancer patients.

The drug tamoxifen (an estrogen receptor blocker) has been the standard hormonal therapy in premenopausal women with breast cancer for many years. It alone remains an excellent option for lower risk patients, but for women at higher risk of relapse, exemestane plus ovarian suppression is a new standard of care. Click here to learn more.

JamesEleanorJames and Eleanor Randall have a long history of providing philanthropic support to organizations that have made a difference in their lives. Through the James & Eleanor Randall Foundation, they support institutions that are dedicated to arts, education, healthcare and mental health – all matters dear to their hearts. Most recently they made a major donation to Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, California, to support the work and care taking place at the hospital’s nationally renowned breast center.

Currently Huntington Hospital’s breast center provides compassionate and innovative care to thousands of women each year. The new Randall Endowment for Breast Care will provide the funds needed to support ongoing excellence in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment within the newly named James and Eleanor Randall Breast Center.

“This new endowment is vital to the ongoing needs of the hospital and the community,” said Ruth Williamson, the hospital’s medical director of breast cancer services. “Thanks to the incredible generosity of Jim and Eleanor Randall, each year we will be able to deploy funds wherever there is the greatest need and ensure that Huntington Hospital remains at the forefront of breast cancer care and treatment. By doing so Huntington will remain a
beacon of hope for thousands of women in our region now and for generations to come.”

Inspired in part by their personal experience, the Randall’s felt compelled to give back to the breast center that was, for them, “an oasis in the midst of the chaos that comes with a cancer diagnosis.” When asked how they felt about their generous gift that will secure vital care for women in the San Gabriel Valley and beyond, Eleanor simply answered that she is “happy knowing that countless other women will be able to get the same care as I did.”

The parents of six grown children, James and Eleanor have created a trust that specifically requires their children to continue giving to the community. “We feel it’s very important to give back,” said James.

Currently, Huntington Hospital’s breast center provides thoughtful, compassionate and innovative care to thousands of women each year. The new Randall Endowment for Breast Care will provide the funds needed to support ongoing excellence in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment within the newly named Jim and Eleanor Randall Breast Center.

“This new endowment is vital to the ongoing needs of the hospital and the community,” said Ruth Williamson, M.D., medical director for breast cancer services. “Thanks to the incredible generosity of Jim and Eleanor Randall, each year we will be able to deploy funds wherever there is the greatest need and ensure that Huntington Hospital remains at the forefront of breast cancer care and treatment.
