06/15/2016

TOMS RIVER - Music and laughter filled the air at the 2nd Annual Cancer Survivorship Celebration hosted by the J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center at Community Medical Center. Cancer survivors and their loved ones were joined by the physicians and staff who oversaw their cancer treatment to celebrate their victory over the disease.

“At the J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center, we are committed to increasing survivorship and we will do everything within our power to achieve it,” said Michael Mimoso, MHSA, FACHE, President & CEO, Community Medical Center, who spoke at the event and joined in the celebration.

This dedication to increasing survivorship was evident in the event’s attendance of more than 150 guests – twice as many guests as the previous year.

“Last year we held the Cancer Survivorship celebration in the hospital auditorium. This year, our numbers have grown so much that we had to move the event to a larger venue,” said Mimoso. “We are looking forward to an even larger celebration next year.”

The J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center located at Community Medical Center approaches cancer treatment with a multidisciplinary team that cares for the physical and psychosocial needs of patients and their families. In addition to board-certified oncologists and specialists, the center provides patients access to clinical trials and treatment with cutting-edge technology, including a CyberKnife. A full array of complementary therapies, including reiki, massage therapy, and yoga, are also available.
