TEAM MITTELMAN

WELCOME TO TEAM MITTELMAN 2018!! IF YOU ARE SIGNING ON TO JOIN TEAM MITTELMAN THEN IT IS MOST LIKELY THAT YOU KNOW ME. I HAVE WORKED AS THE ONCOLOGY NURSE PRACTITIONER, NEXT TO DR. ABRAHAM MITTEMAN, FOR THE PAST 28 (ALMOST 29) YEARS. WHEN I FIRST DECIDED TO START TEAM MITTELMAN WITH ACS AND MAKING STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER, CHOOSING THE NAME WAS EASY. . . . . .TEAM MITTELMAN. WHY?? BECAUSE I WAS GOING TO REACH OUT TO MY PATIENTS WITH BREAST CANCER AND THEIR FAMILIES TO JOIN ME AND ASK THEIR FRIENDS FOR DONATIONS. SIMPLE, RIGHT??? GUESS AGAIN. OUR PATIENTS ARE TIRED, PSYCHOLOGICALLY, AS WELL AS PHYSICALLY, GOING THROUGH TREATMENTS AND DEALING WITH THE INHERENT TOXICITIES, ATTEMPTING TO KEEP THEIR JOBS, KEEPING THEIR FAMILIES TOGETHER, MAINTAINING FRIENDSHIPS, FIGHTING INSURANCE COMPANIES. I WISH I HAD A NICKEL FOR EVERY TIME I HAVE SAID, "YOU GOTTA HELP ME! WE ARE DOING THIS FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, SO THAT YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN WILL NEVER HAVE TO HEAR THE WORDS, 'I'M SO SORRY YOU HAVE BREAST CANCER,' " OR, EVEN WORSE, "I'M SO SORRY BUT THE BREAST CANCER HAS RETURNED AND SPREAD TO YOUR LUNGS, YOUR LIVER, YOUR BRAIN."

THIS HAS BEEN AN EXCEPTIONALLY DIFFICULT WEEK FOR ME. I LOST A CLOSE FRIEND/PATIENT AND IT SIMPLY REINFORCES HOW VERY MUCH WE NEED YOUR HELP TO RAISE MONIES. IT IS THE RARE OR EXTREMELY YOUNG PERSON WHO HAS NOT KNOWN A PERSON WHO HAS DIED FROM BREAST CANCER. I NEVER IMAGINED OR DREAMED THAT I WOULD STILL BE REACHING OUT AND REQUESTING DONATIONS TO SUPPORT BREAST CANCER RESEARCH IN THE 2018 WHEN I BEGAN MY CAREER AS AN ONCOLOGY NURSE PRACTITIONER OVER 35 YEARS AGO!

JOIN US, PLEASE! JOIN TEAM MITTELMAN AND REACH OUT TO YOUR FAMILILES AND FRIENDS FOR THE MUCH NEEDED DONATIONS. TELL THEM YOUR STORY. MAYBE ITS TIME TO TELL THOSE PEOPLE WHO DON'T EVEN KNOW YOU HAVE BREAST CANCER. WE ARE KEEPING PATIENTS WITH BREAST CANCER ALIVE TODAY BECAUSE OF NEWER TREATMENTS. WE NOW HAVE UMMUNOMODULATING AGENTS THAT WORK WITH A PATIENT'S VERY OWN IMMUNE SYSTEM, VERSUS CHEMOTHERAPY. THIS WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE IT WEREN'T FOR THE GENEROSITY OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU, MY FRIENDS, MY PATIENTS, MY TEAM MEMBERS!!

WELCOME TO TEAM MITTELMAN AND I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT MANHATTANVILLE COLLEGE ON OCTOBER 21!!!!

Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.

There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.

Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.
