PACI Youth started with a birthday party.
On April 2008, Mitra Yazdi and Roz Samimi got together with a group of friends to celebrate their 15th & 13th birthdays. In lieu of gifts, they decided to ask for donations to the Persian American Cancer Institute. Through generous donations of friends and family $1250 was raised. Mr. Bijan Pakzad, world renowned designer, heard of their generous gift and donated an additional $5000 to PACI.
Mrs. Sadler, the founder of PACI, with her husband Dr. Sadler, drove up to Northern California to personally thank them for their kind act. Since, the N. Cal Youth group hosted a fundraiser in Fresno for Naseem, a 16 year old with Leukemia, and participated in walks and events trying to bring awareness to the community.
PACI encourages all, young and old to take initiative within their own capacity and join us in our life transforming journey.
