This was the fourth Uplifting Event sponsored by Drs. Feingold, Israeli, Korn, and Light as a celebration of their patients. It was a magical, inspiring evening for all involved!
As in past years, surprise musical performances were among the highlights of The Uplifting Event. This year, along with several musically talented patients, Drs. Feingold, Israeli and Korn, PA, Nik McEnerney, and Surgery Coordinator, Mary Daniels, performed "Twist and Shout" to kick start the program. It brought everyone to their feet and set the tone for a truly "uplifting" experience. This was followed with a performance by Mollie Sugarman, Clinical Director of our Patient Empowerment Program, as the "Divine Ms. M" singing "You've Gotta Have Friends," accompanied by the doctors and back-up singers.
Along with our entire medical team, the event brought together 250 patients with the breast surgeons and oncologists who have shared their mastectomy and breast reconstruction journey. For the first time this year, we were joined by spouses who attend the men's support group.
As part of the program, there were individual bra fittings by certified post mastectomy fitters, a cocktail hour and buffet during which everyone had the opportunity to socialize, and raffles which raised funds for the BRA Day USA Breast Reconstruction Awareness initiative. There was an exiting "runway" show with patient models and entertainment for all.
It was a truly amazing and memorable evening!
