On October 11, the Jefferson Breast Care Center unveiled the Jefferson-Philadelphia Eagles Breast Health floor with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The speakers were Jefferson President and CEO Tom Lewis, Director of the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson Dr. Richard Pestell, Eagles owner Christina Lurie, Eagles safety Kurt Coleman and breast cancer survivor Caity Buck.
Earlier this year, renovations were completed on the 3rd floor of the Jefferson Breast Care Center, thanks to the $1.04 million raised through the Philadelphia Eagles’ “Tackling Breast Cancer” campaign. Because of the team, its fans and partners, Jefferson patients can now benefit from a true multidisciplinary clinical team in this newly renovated space.
The Center gives the patient a comprehensive experience where surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, radiology, pathology risk assessment/genetics, social work and a breast care navigator are all working together with the patient at the center of care.
Fox 29 and Comcast SportsNet covered the dedication event.
