Breast Cancer Support Group Launched in March

 

Breast cancer support group launched at Project Self-Sufficiency

Project Self-Sufficiency announces the launch of a new, virtual support group for breast cancer survivors.  The support group will meet over Zoom at 4:00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every month, beginning March 9th, and will be facilitated by Project Self-Sufficiency breast health program coordinator Haley McCracken.  Participation is free and open to breast cancer survivors who are searching for peer support, connection, information, and access to resources.

 

Since the agency has a long history of providing free breast health education, mammograms, health fairs, and celebratory events for breast cancer survivors, the support group is a natural evolution of the agency’s programming, noted Project Self-Sufficiency Executive Director Deborah Berry-Toon.  “In prior years, Project Self-Sufficiency offered breast health outreach, education, and support to women of all ages through our annual Survivor Events and Health Fairs, in-school education, and free mammograms.  This new support group offers an alternative means to reach women in all stages of breast cancer detection, treatment, and recovery.  We are looking forward to forging new relationships with breast cancer survivors and reconnecting with old friends.”

 

For almost 35 years, Project Self-Sufficiency has offered a comprehensive array of services to individuals and families who are struggling to address challenges in their lives.  Through a combination of case management, job training and education, and family support services the agency has helped thousands to gain self-sufficiency and family stability.  Breast cancer survivors who are interested in participating in the breast cancer support group are invited to call Project Self-Sufficiency at 973-940-3500 to register and receive log-in details.  For more information regarding the comprehensive array of services offered at Project Self-Sufficiency, visit www.projectselfsufficiency.org.

Sussex County Mourns the Loss of Community Philanthropist Beverly Gordon

  Beverly B. Gordon, beloved wife, treasured friend, philanthropist, and longtime Sussex County resident passed away on August 27, 2020.   She will be deeply mourned by her adoring husband of 35 years, Bruce Gordon, and remembered by many not only for her extensive philanthropic work but for her warm, vivacious, and caring personality. Beverly had a deep appreciation for beauty, wherever it could be found. Her passion for architecture and design, her numerous artistic talents from watercolor painting to floral arrangement, and her flawless personal style all reflected this. She was that rare individual who could be equally at home at a racetrack or dancing to the tunes of her favorite local band, Snake Oil Willie, as she was enjoying gourmet food at the most sophisticated events. Those blessed to know her friendship will remember it as an all-encompassing wave that swept over not just that person but everyone in their orbit. Her huge heart extended to animals as well as humans; Bever
