To the Editor:
In Central NJ, nearly 260 people a week are newly diagnosed with cancer; nearly 89 of those individuals have colon cancer, just like Julie Patskin of Bedminster. At Cancer Support Community Central NJ, we want to recognize that March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.
Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death among both men and women in the United States. For every person affected, there are many people in their lives that are also impacted. CSCCNJ serves all people affected by cancer.
Julie, a colon cancer survivor, has utilized many of the free activities offered at CSCCNJ. CSCCNJ offers a menu of options for individuals including support groups led by professional staff, education, nutrition, healthy cooking, gentle fitness, yoga and stress reducing classes.
All of this is available, FREE, to any person affected by cancer. This includes the individual with cancer, their family and friends. “At CSCCNJ, my entire family found the hope and support we needed on our journey with cancer, ensuring we never felt alone,” said Julie.
