Our New Store at Kaiser in San Leandro
We are proud to announce the opening of a new HERS program store, in partnership with an amazing team of people from Kaiser Permanente and beyond.
Many thanks to friends, supporters, clients, and board members who showed up to support HERS at the new store!
HERS staff and board members were joined by Kaiser Dr. Ming Kuan (oncology), who was instrumental in getting the store established at Kaiser San Leandro Medical Center.
San Leandro Vice Mayor Corina Lopez was there, along with JJ Olson, Barbara Hague, and Cathy Brabec, members of longtime HERS partner Tri Valley SOCKs. One of our clients, Lisa, inspired everyone with her speech.
We are incredibly grateful for the support and guidance of Kaiser Permanente staff members Mitch Winnick (COO, Kaiser San Leandro),
Melissa Goff, Kim Cunha, Kathy Moore and Dr. Kuan. HERS Board Member Dr. Rishi Sawhney was also a driving force behind this project. This dedicated team has been with us every step of the way, from welcoming our proposal to putting the finishing touches on our wonderful new space. And finally, a special word of thanks to our own Annette Lewellyn, who has worked tirelessly to make this dream a reality.
We'd like to thank everyone who came to celebrate our grand opening with us. Special thanks to
the San Leandro Chamber Team for helping to organize the event.

Kaiser patients, come see us!
We're very grateful to Kaiser Permanente for providing their patients with a new option for services! Our newest location, in an auxiliary building just minutes from the beautiful San Leandro Kaiser Hospital, will help make our services much more seamless for patients receiving hospital services and for Kaiser patients in general.
Kaiser Permanente made every effort to create a warm and welcoming space by incorporating beautiful floor coverings, paint, furniture, and art.
On prominent display is a custom quilt made specifically for our new location by Melissa Lewellyn, the daughter of Annette Lewellyn, our Director of Programs.
Speaking of Annette, she'll provide expert fitting services and compassionate care at our San Leandro store and, as at our Fremont and Pleasanton locations, we'll offer high quality bras, prostheses, and camisoles from American Breast Care, Amoena, Anita International, and Luisa Luisa.
Our charitable program, We Support, You Survive is offered at this store, so we can serve clients regardless of their financial status. We will also help clients with insurance, when applicable. Please call 510-969-7758 if you have any questions.
Another heartfelt thank you to everyone who has made it possible for us to extend our outreach and help more breast cancer survivors in the Bay Area.
