The 2016 Tournament of Roses Royal Court was at USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center on Dec. 1.

The Royal Court that visited patients, staff and faculty included queen Erika Winter and princesses Donaly Marquez, Rachelle Liu, Natalie Hernandez-Barber, Sarah Shaklan, Bryce Bakewell and Regina Pullens.

This is the 21st year USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center has hosted a visit from the Tournament of Roses Royal Court. The tradition gives the young ladies an opportunity to support and inspire cancer patients and to learn more about the cancer treatment and research taking place at the center.
