ABCs mission is to find a cure for breast and prostate cancer. “It is with great joy and pleasure that at the end of each year, the ABCs are fortunate enough to hand the esteemed doctors at the John Wayne Cancer Institute a generous check so they can continue their ground-breaking and life-saving research,” said ABCs President Gloria E. Gebbia.

Canela presented Eva Longoria Bastón with the Muriel Siebert Award for her outstanding career and unwavering philanthropic efforts. She spoke about her sister’s diagnosis of cancer (who is thankfully in remission), as well as how breast and prostate cancer disproportionally affects the Latino community due to lack of early detection. Martin & Lisa Greenberg were honored with the Philanthropic Leadership Award for their long-time support of the ABCs.
