Eat a Tasty Dessert, Help a Downtown Clinic Provide Breast Cancer Screenings

Who knew helping people could be so tasty? October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and all month The Farm of Beverly Hills will be donating the proceeds from special pink-centered Farmeeohs to the Eisner Pediatric & Family Medical Center, located Downtown at Pico and Olive.

The funds will help the Center provide breast exams to its patients inside a mobile mammogram unit operated by The Elizabeth Center for Cancer Detection. The converted motorhome is currently at the clinic five days each month, serving approximately 250 patients in that time.

Before the Eisner Center started bringing the mobile unit to the clinic, patients with a potential for breast cancer had to be referred to County, where months-long waits could mean drastically reduced chances for successful treatment. Now the doctors inside the Center can quickly schedule exams and get results that same day.

The promotion runs through October at all three Farm of Beverly Hills locations: Beverly Hills, The Grove and at L.A. Live.
