BEVERLY HILLS NEWS to breast cancer patients illJllJ but didn't have the some support I had." CO,en thinks she was in breast 0Mgo, it is grat- Ihe dreaded group For my shudder- ordeal to tell me robe Thanks to Cohen, things are consider- ably different today. Following her surgery, the Beverly Hills resident helped found the John Wayne Cancer Institute Auxiliary, which has raised nearly $5 mil- lion since 1983 for the institute's Joyce Fisenberg Keefer Breast Center at Saint John's Hospital. "It's a beautiful place," said Cohen, who will receive the auxiliary's Woman of Achievement "Angel" Award on Wednes- day. "It sort of looks like the Ritz Carlton Hotel. It's very feminine, relaxing and soothing...We've done everything in our power to make the women feel as good as they possibly can when they come in for this horrible examination." Working with the breast center director Dr. Armando E. Giuliano, the physician who treated her in 1982, Cohen helped establish a whole series of support groups and, most recently, an "pos- itive appearance center" that carries everything from wigs and hats to special bras and prosthesis. Cohen also volun- teers at the center one day each week, teaching self breast examinations. "There isn't anything we don't offer to the woman with breast cancer," Cohen said. Well, there is one thing. While the treatment of breast cancer has advanced tremen- dously in recent years -- espe- cially if it is detected early -- a cure still isn't in sight. "So far, the cause of breast cancer is a total mystery," Cohen said. "If you don't knov the cause, you can't find the cure...Eorly detection is the cure at this point." ing the  at  TheJiaJ-,S annual ball Saturday are l:r , 1 and Fashion r dance at 7 For receives the Distinguished Beverly call Oct. 21: Joan Collins receives the Entertainment Industry Humanitarian Award at the Associates for Breast Can- cer Studies' annual Solute to Hollywood gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
