two transactions. An unexpected purchase 
of a wonderful Altadena fixer with additional 
lots, then the sale of our rental home. Jan 
was great working with us on the purchase, 
open to our ideas to get the purchase 
closed quickly for all parties. And we 
couldn’t have been happier with our sale, 
which closed in just 12 days after less than a 
week on the market! She also was extremely 
helpful with staging, and recommendations 
for minor repairs. We would definitely work 
with Jan again.

Sierra Madre is getting a new 
resident. The Cancer Support 
Community Pasadena in moving 

CSC, an organization which 
currently provides ten weekly 
support groups and one 
monthly support group facilitated 
by professional mental 
health therapists, and over 125 
monthly education workshops 
led by experts in their field 
along with stress management 
classes plans to move to Sierra 
Madre in April, 2023. 

CSC recently purchased the 
7,000 square foot plus facility 
at 331 W Sierra Madre Blvd. 
CSC resided in Pasadena for 
30 years. 

Patricia Ostiller, Executive Director of Cancer Support Community 
said, “Sierra Madre is a beautiful neighborhood for our 
mission. It’s very friendly, down to earth, and relaxing. We look 
forward to our participants finding peace, comfort, relaxation, 
and support in Sierra Madre - and we look forward to getting 
to know our neighbors.” 

She also noted, “Our donors are excited about this news, too. 
We look forward to joining hands with our entire community 
to help us ensure a successful move. A variety of permanent 
naming opportunities for our new building are available at

This larger building will allow Cancer Support Community to 
offer new programs at our partici-pant's request. An outdoor 
oasis will provide solace with a water feature and peaceful 
landscaping. It’ll provide for a beautiful outdoor space.”

 The Cancer Support Community organization was established in 1982, Harold and Harriet Benjamin transformed the way our culture 
faces cancer. Har-riet, a cancer survivor herself, sought to create an organization that would provide social and emotional support to 
not only cancer patients, but also to families, friends, and caregivers. The Benjamins strongly encouraged psychosocial care because 
they believed in a strong correlation between emotional and physical well-being. Thus, the first walk-in community facility of its kind, 
The Wellness Community (TWC), was founded in Santa Monica, CA as an outlet for those suffering from cancer to receive appropriate

It is a well known fact that nothing can stop the lifeblood of Sierra Madre - its volunteers - from functioning as it should. That was 
very apparent on Thursday when the thermometer reading was in excess of 100 degrees and the Senior Community Commissioners 
would not cancel their regular meeting. The commission's purpose is to "conduct city business" as it relates to activities that benefit 
Sierra Madre Seniors. Their agenda was full including planning and discussions on past and future activities such as the Senior Art 
Show, Senior Excursions, the YWCA Intervale Lunch Program and much more. Like the popular motto that used to be associated 
with the US Postal Service , " “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night. shall stop the US Mail..", the SMSCC could justifiably 
adopt, 'neither traveling through extreme heat of day nor glaring sun shall stop us'. The Commission meets on the 4th Thursday 
of each month. S. Henderson/MVNews
