Now in its thirty-sixth year, Beckstrand Cancer Foundation has provided the Southern California cancer community with patient advocacy and financial assistance programs to support individuals and families with cancer as they undergo chemotherapy and radiation. The aid has enabled patients to continue treatment uninterrupted by helping with day-to-day expenses such as rent/mortgage, food, utilities, transportation, medical insurance and copayments. The Foundation’s pediatric-focused programs have provided behavioral counseling, support with school reintegration, art therapy, and special gifts during the holidays. The addition of the Andi Collins Memorial Scholarship Program will provide tuition awards to qualified students nationwide who exhibit both scholastic achievement and financial need. Best known as the vivacious and brilliant Natalia Boa Vista, a DNA Lab Specialist turned CSI on “CSI: Miami,” and her long-running portrayal of Dr. Maria Santos on the ABC daytime drama “All My Children,” Eva La Rue has been active for years in her support of cancer-affiliated causes which impact the well-being of women and children. The cause is near and dear to her heart; both her grandmother and great-grandmother were lost to cancer
