Yassy Hosseini

Yassy was full of life and she did not want to die and she never gave up. Yassy was trying to find the cure not only for breast cancer but all types of cancer.

Yassy bravely fought incurable stage 4 metastatic breast cancer for 7 years and was tirelessly contributing time and efforts to raise funds for breakthrough research for prevention and cure for cancer, during some of her toughest days.

 Yassy will be remembered as a champion and crusader for finding cure for cancer. She participated in early trial and research and was fighting till the end for her life. She will forever be remembered for her inspiring spirit and the magic she brought with her wherever she went. I know Yassy would ask us not to mourn her death, but to rejoice in her life and not give up finding cure for cancer.

The Butterfly Ball, hosted by comedian/actor Maz Jobrani, was attended by actresses like Nazanin Mandi and Liz Hernandez, and featured a night of food, music and a silent auction. Auction included artwork, gift baskets, sports tickets, and music memorabilia. The latter was donated by the likes of Justin Timberlake, Aloe Blacc, Weezer, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

ponsored in part by Interscope Geffen A&M, City National Bank, and Habibi Properties, guests were also treated to a DJ set by Snoop Dogg who kept the night going well past midnight. By the end of the evening the event had raised more than $120,000.

City of Hope is an independent non-profit organization with an research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes, and other terminal illnesses. Warrior of Light Foundation was established to commemorate the life of Hosseini, a former staffer at Geffen Records, Capitol and Interscope Geffen A&M. She died at age 39 in 2016 after a long battle with breast cancer.
