The J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center
Many events at Community Medical Center benefit
The J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer
Center. Because of the support of so many in our community we were able to bring
CyberKnife technology to Ocean County. Due to its pinpoint accuracy, the
CyberKnife allows our radiation oncologist to reach inoperable tumors
that were impossible to treat in the past- offering new hope and a better
quality of life.
Thanks to everyone who supports our
Annual Wine Tasting Event, a portion of the proceeds were used to purchase a second car for the
J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center. This vehicle is used daily to transport patients to and from Community
Medical Center for their treatments. This annual event supports improvements
throughout the cancer center.
This year’s Annual Phil Citta Memorial Fundraiser which was held
at The Office Lounge was another huge success! This annual event was held
on Wednesday, February 15th where a portion of the days proceeds benefit
the J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center at Community Medical Center.
This year the event raised over $21,000 giving a total of over $240,000
raised over the years for the Cancer Center.
In October 2014 Representatives from Community Medical Center, the Jay
and Linda Grunin Foundation and American Cancer Society celebrated the
grand opening of the Inspiration Boutique, a specialty center for cancer
patients located within the J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center at
Community Medical Center.
As patients undergoing treatments for cancer often experience hair loss,
the Inspiration Boutique provides cancer patients with access to a large
variety of wig styles and hats/caps, free of charge. Patients may also
participate in reiki therapy and other complementary therapies, also at no cost.
