To honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a cancer survivor joined a team of physicians and staff from Keck Medicine of USC on the field during the Oct. 1 USC Trojan football game against Arizona State, while a group of nurses presented the game ball and administered the coin toss.

Annette Sy, RN, chief nursing officer of Keck Hospital of USC and USC Norris Cancer Hospital, presented the game ball before kickoff, while Bob Allen, chief financial officer of Keck Medicine, and oncology nurses Laurie Feinstein, RN, and Paula Seno, RN, participated in the coin toss.

After the first quarter of play, the crowd then recognized a group that included patient Mincin Golchini and her son Keivan, as well as Keck School of Medicine of USC faculty members Julie Lang, MD, associate professor of clinical surgery from the Keck School of Medicine of USC; Bodour Salhia, PhD, assistant professor of translational genomics; Maria Nelson, MD, assistant professor of clinical surgery; Janice Lu, MD, PhD, clinical professor of medicine; Stephen Sener, MD, clinical professor of surgery; and Christy Russell, MD, associate professor of clinical medicine.

Commemorative black or pink shirts adorned with the pink ribbon logo that is associated with the fight against breast cancer are available for sale at USC bookstores.
