Like many women, when life got hectic, I put my family first, delaying
many personal priorities including my annual mammogram. Then, at 45-years-old,
I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
I could not believe what I heard. I am thankful that in the midst of feeling
fear and desperation, I was directed to the
Cohen Cancer Center at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center.
Today, I am lucky to say I have been cancer free for 15 years. The commitment
and compassion delivered by the entire staff at The Beth was phenomenal
– they treated me like family. At a very frightening time, they
made me feel that I was the only person that mattered and that it was
all about me. That made all the difference.
So many people, fighting all types of cancers, are helped each year at the
Frederick B. Cohen, MD Comprehensive Cancer and Blood Disorders Center
at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center.
The staff there has heart. And, as a leading cancer center in Northern New Jersey, patients like
me have access to the highest level of care, including the most advanced
diagnostic testing and treatment options available.
