The Dr. Norick Bogossian Cancer Care Guild Seeks to Raise $ 200,000 to Fund the Cancer Center Support Services, Which Are Provided Free to Cancer Patients and Their Families in the Community.
The Cancer Center at Glendale Adventist Medical Center has a new ally. The Dr. Norick Bogossian Cancer Care Guild has been established by the Glendale Adventist Healthcare Foundation. Karine Bagdasarian serves as Chairperson of the Guild, and with the inspiration and support of Mrs. Hilda Bogossian, hopes to raise money to fund the support services at the Cancer Center.
The Cancer Center offers their services, free of charge to the community, and include such services as support groups, fitness programs, and a wonderful image enhancement service that provides wigs, hats and scarves to patients. These important programs are possible through the support of generous donors, volunteers and dedicated healthcare professionals. Money raised by the Guild will help ensure the continuity of service provided by the Cancer Center to the brave men, women and children battling cancer.
The namesake of this Guild was Dr. Norick Bogossian, a highly regarded plastic-reconstructive surgeon, and is renowned in the medical community as the surgeon who performed the first successful micro-vascular tissue transfer at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. Trained at the top schools in the country, including New York Hospital - Cornell University Medical College, UCLA and the University of Miami School of Medicine, Dr. Bogossian was also a resident in surgical oncology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Dr. Bogossian died of cancer in 2009 at the age of 56, and is survived by his wife, Hilda and their three children.
The doctor and his family received valuable service and support at the Glendale Adventist Cancer Center during his fight against colon cancer. Dr. Bogossian is the inspiration for this new Guild and it is in his honor that donors are asked give generously.
