Mayor Max Salter welcomed four young cancer patients from the Soviet Union to Beverly Hills in a City Hall ceremony last week.
The patients--Alina Ivanova and Nina Djenda, both 11, and Tanja Shmorgoner and Angelea Mihay, both 13--were accompanied by Drs. Lev Durnov and Liana Nikelova, a of the U.S.S.R. Academy of Medical Sciences Cancer Research Center in Moscow.
Salter gave the visitors keys to the city and gift packages including teddy bears, wrist-watch walkie-talkies and perfume.
They were in Southern California to visit Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times, a camp program for young cancer victims that is headed by Salter's daughter, Pepper Edmiston, and to see doctors at Childrens Hospital.
