CORTLANDT MANOR, N.Y. -- Hudson Valley Hospital Center dedicated a new boutique to serve the needs of women with cancer during a celebration honoring cancer survivors on Thursday, May 29.
Ginger’s Place will provide wig and bra fittings as well as beauty products and care information for women undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
The boutique was made possible with the support of hospital board member Michael Delfino and his wife, Ginger, of Montrose.
“It is very fitting that we dedicate this boutique as part of our Survivor Day celebration. As a comprehensive cancer center, our primary mission is to provide not only medical treatment, but emotional and social support to our patients,’’ said Hudson Valley Hospital President John Federspiel. “We cannot thank Mike and Ginger Delfino enough for making it possible for us to offer this additional support to our patients and to all women undergoing cancer treatment.’’
Cortlandt Town Supervisor Linda Puglisi presented the Delfinos with a certificate from the town of Cortlandt honoring the couple for their many years of philanthropy and community service.
"The hospital holds the event each year to provide cancer survivors with a chance to celebrate the spirit of hope and courage with friends, family and one another," said Anne Campbell-Maxwell, director of oncology at the Cheryl R. Lindenbaum Cancer Center.
“This is an opportunity for them to connect and share these experiences with other cancer survivors, friends and family. It is a very moving event."
