Why We Support the American Cancer Society

Saving lives from breast cancer starts one team, one walker, and one dollar at a time. We know that the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end breast cancer. We know that supporting them will ensure that if you need someone to talk to anytime of the day or night, they’ll be there. If your friend is losing her hair from chemo, your mother needs a ride to treatment, or a loved one needs a place to stay when treatment is far from home, they will be there to help.
Join us and together we will walk for a world without breast cancer.

White Plains Hospital Center for Cancer Care

The White Plains Hospital Center for Cancer Care, home to the Dickstein Center and your circle of care during the often overwhelming and emotional time following a cancer diagnosis.

Initially accredited in 1993, we are approved by The American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer as a Community Comprehensive Cancer Program. We are also a repeated recipient of the Commission on Cancer’s Outstanding Achievement Award, one of only 79 hospitals in the United States to receive this honor in 2013.

In 2012, the Hospital also received the prestigious accreditation as a National Breast Center by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance.

As the leading regional cancer facility, the WPH Cancer Program provides patients with the best care available in an easily accessible setting. Your circle of care is complete cancer care—the only kind of care you will find at The Cancer Program at White Plains Hospital.

Our Cancer Services and Resources

Because health and well-being are essential for both cancer patients and families, we strive to meet your physical and psychosocial needs by combining state-of-the-art diagnostic treatment technologies, surgical techniques, and professional expertise with a compassionate, respectful, and personal approach to patient care.

Why We Are Making Strides

Almost everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way, so we've decided to make a difference by walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Westchester.

Today 1 of every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for help and support. The donations Team HOPE raises will enable investment in groundbreaking breast cancer research, free information and services for women diagnosed with the disease, and access to mammograms for women who need them. Our donations will help more than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors celebrate another birthday this year!

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.
