Swedish Institute Joins Making Strides Against Breast Cancer



Last Saturday we found ourselves surrounded by supporters, survivors, care givers, family, and friends of more than 30,000 walkers in last Sunday’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer at Central Park in New York City.

Students, faculty and staff from Swedish Institute walked and raised almost $800 plus for the American Cancer Society. “I will wear pink with pride in celebration of those who have won their battle” says one student. Special thanks to Ms. Wendy Pagan, Theresa Robbinson, Monique Thompson and Maria Sebastian, to name a few for their bright ideas in drumming up the fund raising campaign and dedication to this cause.

Initiated by the CAMA Swedish Pulse of New York, the Surg Tech students also supported the fund raising campaign through the sales of various pink items such as ribbons, pens, wrist band.

Thanks to all of our staff, faculty and students who participated! 

 – Dr. Joe Balatbat
