Miles of Hope Announces Sunday’s Brunch Program

At the Miles of Hope Annual Spring Brunch on Sunday, May 1, at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie, IBM will make a presentation on how breast cancer treatment is impacted by Watson Health; Nettie Womack and Patty Nelson, breast cancer survivors and activists in the African American community will be honored; and seven scholarships will be awarded to area high school seniors whose lives have been affected by breast cancer.

Pari Forood, Executive Director of the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation said: “Our program is full of informative, educational and heartwarming elements. We are expecting over 400 guests, all in pink, to honor and remember those affected by breast cancer in our Hudson Valley.”

“We are excited about the IBM presentation. In a nutshell, Watson Health gathers patient data and compares these against known cases. It then provides a report detailing options for individualized treatments.”

Nettie Womack and Patty Nelson, sisters, breast cancer survivors, and activists in their African American community, will be honored at the Brunch for reaching out to this minority population at church and social gatherings through their Women of Faith Health and Wellness Ministry. Congressman Chris Gibson, NYS Senator Sue Serino, County Executive Marcus Molinaro, and Mayor Rob Rolison will all be presenting commendations to the Honorees.

The Brunch will also highlight local high school seniors receiving scholarships to college:

“All are welcome to run for time or run for the first time!” said Event organizer and chairman Lori Decker, local community activist, athletic trainer and co-owner of Forza Fitness in Millbrook.
“This event which I started for my clients has blossomed into a wonderful event for beginners, seasoned runners running to qualify for bigger races, and kids. Everyone should feel comfortable running and welcoming Spring on April 23, at beautiful Tymor Park!” she said.
Miles of Hope Executive Director, Pari Forood added: “The Family Fun Run has raised over $200,000 for Miles of Hope programs since its inception 13 years ago. We are indebted to Lori Decker who has run this event from the beginning for all of her hard work and enthusiasm. She can convince anyone to run! And as a marathon runner herself, she knows the benefits of staying in shape to reduce cancer risk.”
Miles of Hope, a 501-c-3, public charity, funds support services for people affected by breast cancer within the 8 counties of the Hudson Valley.

Galleria at Crystal Run Makes Holiday Donation

The Galleria at Crystal Run

The Galleria at Crystal Run in Middletown presents Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation Executive Director, Pari Forood, with a donation of $500 for breast cancer services in the Hudson Valley.

“Amidst all of the holiday cheer and busy schedules, the Galleria at Crystal Run made sure that their donation to help people affected by breast cancer within the 8 counties of the Hudson Valley was received,” Ms. Forood said.
 
“We have the privilege of helping hundreds of people in Orange County, and all over the Hudson Valley when they are in treatment for breast cancer and when they are in remission. We help caregivers and families of patients, and we fund other nonprofit organizations that deliver services to breast cancer patients,” Ms. Forood added.
 
“Thanks to Laci Johnson, Marketing Director at the Galleria and Stacy Decker, Customer Service Supervisor, for organizing this campaign. When organizations raise money for us, we are able to help more people. The generosity of businesses and individuals in the Hudson Valley continues to overwhelm us.”
