Successful October 2019 - Breast Cancer Community Seminar



Thank you to all those who attended our October 14th, 2019 breast cancer community education event at the Chandelier. Our sponsors made this important event possible: The Hall DiGioia Center for Breast Health, Genomic Health, Guardant Health, Myriad Genetics, Madeline Fiadini LoRe Foundation and Melissa Godesky-Rodriguez. We also appreciate the assistance with the distributions and gathering of educational materials from our friends Reza Cailles, Betty Reynolds (Mammo Techs from the Cristie Kerr Center), Dana Reynolds, R.N. as well as guests Nora Hall, Pam O'Donnnell, Melissa Godesky-Rodriguez and Mary Beth Castine, R.N.  A very special acknowledgement to my friend and colleague Zoraida Fontan (a.k.a. Zee) for holding down the fort in the office and at the event! Once again we had a phenomenal physician panel featuring medical oncologists Dr. Dev Iyengar, Dr. Daman Ghuman and Dr. Amit Patel; radiation oncologist Dr. Alan Shaiman; surgeons Dr. Zibigniew Moszczynski, Dr. Anroy Ottley, Dr. Thomas Simpson and Dr. Julie DiGioia, plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Stephen Hall and physical therapists Carl Gargiulo and Natalie Baccile Rodrigues. A special thank you also goes to Gina Andriolo and Mark Rabson for their public relations expertise. The dialogue between our guests and physicians was both thought provoking and powerful. We also thank the Chandelier for their accommodations - well done Victor and staff. It was a great night overall. We are looking forward to next year!🌸Submitted by Mary Jane Desmond - Office Manager
