In Honor of
Survivor of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
Twenty-five-year-old Briele Salvo, longtime resident of Roseland can proudly say since September 17, 2019 she is now a survivor of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Being a Registered Nurse in the ICU at Morristown Medical Center, she had noticed a lump above her collar bone and knew this was something not to ignore. She suddenly became her own advocate not knowing this would turn into a life changing experience. Over the previous years, Briele has been on the frontline to support others not knowing that one day she would have to decide to be a patient at her place of work in need of help. Today, she gives a special thanks to the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center for assisting her with a successful recovery and making her feel very comfortable throughout this life-threatening journey. The hospital staff made her battle worth fighting for as well as her family and friends.
Briele has witnessed first-hand why the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center is named northern New Jersey’s top-ranked cancer program. The unit has plans for a patient-centered renovation and recruitment of top specialists well-underway, the cancer center is positioned to advance cancer care for the next twenty years and beyond. The CGSCC offers the latest treatments and clinical advances for all types of cancer.
In celebration of Briele we “hope” to raise
$35,000 to name an infusion chair
. Level 3 of the Simon Cancer Center is being completely reconfigured to house a larger and more relaxing Infusion Suite, featuring 36 infusion chairs. This area is essential to patient care and has one of the highest procedure volumes in the center – with 21,000 infusions provided annually.
Additional items on the wish list include:
$10,000 to purchase “Cold Caps”
$5,000 for the Oncology Patient Support Fund
to offer financial assistance and offset expenses for patients who have been diagnosed with cancer and need financial, emotional and / or psychological support.
