About the Community Walk for Breast Cancer

Come and join us for Miles of Hope’s oldest event: 2019 Miles of Hope Hudson Valley Community Walk for Breast Cancer! Our first Walk in 2003 was created to bring awareness to the need for breast cancer support programs in our region. To this day, Miles of Hope is the only Breast Cancer Foundation where all of the money raised stays in the Hudson Valley. This money directly funds support services and outreach to our families, friends, neighbors, and colleagues whose lives have been affected by breast cancer. The Walk is not only a fundraiser, but a gathering of survivors, family members and caregivers. It attracts hundreds of people every fall who walk in honor of, in memory of and in support of friends and loved ones.

This year we are honoring breast surgeon and patient Dr. Diana Silverman.

About Dr Diana Silverman

Dr Diana Silverman is a fellowship trained breast surgical oncologist, and also a Stage IV breast cancer survivor.

She originally moved to the Hudson Valley 6 years ago with her husband and daughter. At the time Dr. Silverman was the Breast Program Leader at the Herb & Sue Ann Redl Center for Cancer Care, and lead developer of the expansion of the new Women’s Imaging Center of MidHudson Regional Hospital of Westchester Medical Center. In 2015 she was asked to join Mount Kisco Medical Group, now Caremount Medical Group. She has volunteered her time to Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation, Breast Cancer Options and Sparrows Nest. She was voted Hudson Valley Parent Favorite Doc and 2017’s Top 40 under 40 Mover and Shaker by the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce.

In March of 2017, Dr Silverman’s life was changed when she, herself, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 36. She underwent surgery, chemotherapy and returned back to work in November with a completely new outlook on life and breast cancer treatment. Unfortunately, less than one year later, she found out the cancer had not only come back, but that it had spread to her spine. Dr. Diana Silverman is now living with Stage IV, metastatic breast cancer and has thoroughly found a new appreciation for life. She hopes to return back to work soon, until then she still continues to be an advocate for breast cancer survivors, by researching treatments from all over the world to help combat the disease and improve quality of life.
