Message From the Medical Director

Message From Dr. Raul Mena, Medical Director,
Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center

Thanks to the dedication, generosity and support of many people, I am proud to report that the new Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center is now serving cancer patients at our state-of-the-art center. Ours is the first truly comprehensive cancer care facility in the San Fernando Valley, providing integrated multidisciplinary patient-centered care that is on par with some of the leading cancer centers around the country.

At the Disney Family Cancer Center, we provide a more patient-focused integrated approach to care, with one common goal: to "Triumph Over Cancer." We're using the latest technologies and most advanced treatments matched with a commitment to evidence-based quality care, to treat the whole patient - mind, body and spirit. In fact, our unique combination of state-of-the-art equipment, united with complementary therapies, makes our approach to cancer care so much more comprehensive that you'll find almost anywhere.

The new center, offering a progressive approach to cancer treatment where technology and healing arts come together, provides positive outcomes that exceed the national average for many kinds of cancer.

As a truly comprehensive center, we offer not only experienced, caring physicians and highly advanced equipment, but services beyond the norm like special programs for adolescents and young adults, individual and support group counseling, complementary therapies and integrative medicine, a patient and family resource library, an infusion center, medical oncology, nutritional counseling, an on-site pharmacy, pain management, a personal appearance center, radiation oncology, rehabilitation services, research and clinical trials, spiritual care, a survivorship program and nurse navigators to help bring it all together for our patients.

The philosophy that permeates the center at every stage is, 'How can we do this together as a team in a better format, with a new mindset?' Our treatments are custom-tailored to each patient, based on their individual's hopes and aspirations.

I invite you to learn more about the Disney Family Cancer Center by exploring these pages and visiting our facility. We are very proud of this center and believe it will quickly become the first choice for patients with cancer.

Together, we can "Triumph Over Cancer."
