TThe Cancer Center of Santa Barbara with Sansum Clinic is a non-profit cancer treatment center founded in 1949 by Elisha Converse. He wished to bring the most advanced cancer treatment available to the local community in honor of his wife, Lillian, who had suffered from the disease. Today, the Center is comprised of three medical depts. radiation oncology, hematology/medical oncology and nuclear medicine. A wellness program is in place to implement preventative programs, community alliances and educational tools for risk reduction, cancer management and prevention of re-occurrence. We also offer assistance with: child care, health insurance, long term care and transportation.

The mission of the Cancer Center serves as a guiding force and allows us to maintain the quality and compassionate care that have been our hallmark for more than half a century.

Those interested in joining the effort to fight breast cancer are encouraged to attend the 12th Annual Barbara Ireland Walk for Breast Cancer Research on Saturday, March 17, hosted by Barbara Ireland, her family, and Cancer Center of Santa Barbara. All proceeds from the Walk remain in our community, supporting cutting-edge clinical breast cancer research at Cancer Center of Santa Barbara.

Approximately 2.4 million women in the United States are living with breast cancer and, on average, a woman living in the U.S. has a one in eight chance of developing invasive breast cancer during her lifetime.

In addition to promoting awareness of the disease, the Barbara Ireland Walk hopes to raise $100,000 to fund research; the strongest tool in winning the fight against breast cancer.

Currently, Cancer Centers Clinical Research Program is recruiting patients for 10 breast cancer trials and continues to collect data in over 30 trials. Theprogram screens all breast cancer patients in Santa Barbara for clinical trial eligibility, and to date has enrolled over 200 patients in our community.

Nearly $8,000 was raised at a kick-off for the Walk held in January, which was generously sponsored by Paul Dargan of Dargans
Irish Pub & Restaurant. Attendees enjoyed live Irish music, appetizers, and exciting silent auction prizes while hearing from local physicians, researchers, and patients about the importance of clinical research in our community.

Since the kick-off, over 100 participants and twelve teams have registered. In addition, 43 people have registered for the free 7-Week Training Program designed to help individuals of all ability levels prepare for the 10-mile course. The group meets at 8:00a.m. each Saturday morning prior to the event at Chase Palm Park; participants are still welcome to join.

Cancer Center Walk/Run

On October 12, 2014, the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara in conjunction with the Four Seasons Resort Santa Barbara, will host the 22nd annual Cancer Center Walk/Run. As in the past, 100% of the proceeds from our run benefit cancer research at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, a local non-profit cancer treatment center.

Barbara Ireland Walk for Breast Cancer Research

The Barbara Ireland Walk for Breast Cancer Research begins rain or shine at 8:30 a.m. with a 10 mile walk/run (shorter course options available) along a scenic beach route.
