Meet the Comfort Project 360 Team
Comfort Project 360 Founders
Livingston resident, Hyla Weiss, a wife and mother is a breast cancer survivor.
Hyla’s personal journey led her to co-found Comfort Project 360,
an initiative to improve the experience of patients undergoing cancer
care at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. Despite her positivity, Hyla found
her cancer treatments emotionally taxing. She recognized the medical care
she received was excellent but the experience could have been improved
with some simple changes. Understanding that the physical environment
is an integral part of healing, Hyla began to focus her time on creating
healing spaces and developing programs that harness the power of the mind-body
connection at Saint Barnabas Medical Center.
Livingston resident, Suzanne Unger’s mother and best friend, Renee
Greenwald, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 48. Suzanne
lost her mother to cancer six years later. Since that time, this wife
and mother of two, has been involved in cancer related charities. She
chaired the American Cancer Society’s Diamond Ball, all to help
make a difference in the fight against cancer. Forever touched by cancer,
Suzanne recognized the value of a nurturing and supportive environment
in which to receive care. With the same vision, determination, and empathy,
Hyla and Suzanne launched Comfort Project 360, to ease the mind and lift
the spirits of cancer patients in their community.
