DONOR DIRECTED COMMUNITY PROGRAM

Ronnie Lippin Cancer Support and Navigation Program

at USC Norris and LA+USC County medical system

In memory of beloved wife and mother Ronnie, the Lippin family has partnered with Tower to launch the Ronnie Lippin Cancer Support and Navigation Program at USC Norris and LA+USC County medical system. The program provides one-one-one guidance and assistance to diverse low-income patients in the East Los Angeles area, which has the highest density of late-stage cancers in the county. The principal function of the navigator is to eliminate any and all barriers to timely screening, diagnosis, treatment, and supportive care for each individual.
