Every year, the surgeons and staff at our practice all walk as a team with our patients at the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event at Jones Beach. This event always takes place on the third Sunday of October, and as in past years, the event this year was a celebration of life on a beautiful day. As described by Mollie Sugarman, the director of our Patient Empowerment Program, it was “a wonderful day of sisterhood and family support.”
This was our thirteenth year participating as a group in this event! We have really come a long way since our early years when we met as a small group in the Jones Beach parking lot. We are now Flagship sponsors of the event and we have over 1,000 patients, families and friends meet at our tent before we walk. This year Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, PC was among the top fundraising companies in the country, having raised over $110,000 for the American Cancer Society and their fight against breast cancer! As a team, the Drs. Randall Feingold, Ron Israeli, Peter Korn, and David Light team was among the National Top Twenty Pacesetter Teams.
A special thank you goes to all of our patients and their friends and families who joined us in fundraising this year!
