In honor of Mother’s Day, the ambulatory infusion teams have distributed roses to patients who visited USC Norris Cancer Day Hospital, the Norris Healthcare Center Treatment Center and Women’s Specialty Care Clinic, as well as Keck Medicine of USC treatment centers in Arcadia, Buena Park, Koreatown, Santa Clarita, Newport Beach and Pasadena during the week of Mother’s Day.

This has become an annual tradition to celebrate patients who are mothers coming to Keck Medicine of USC for chemotherapy and infusion treatments.

“This is an important, long-standing tradition for our organization,” said Smitha Ravipudi, MPH, CEO for USC Care Medical Group and Ambulatory Services. “For us, serving our courageous mothers is a true honor. Day in and day out, their strength and resilience inspires us to improve our own lives and give back to our communities.”
