SAVE THE DATE! We are having a huge, fabulous event on August 17 for the Ellen Hermanson Foundation, better known as “Ellen’s Run.” This year it’s called “The Pink Apron.” We have 21 female chefs from NYC and The Hamptons PLUS a rocking DJ that will keep you dancing all night long. All this fab food and fun for a great cause!
On August 18, we then have our “Ellen’s Run,” which helps you burn those calories that you ate the night before! That’s a true double header and a complete weekend of festivities.
The Ellen Hermanson Foundation is continuing Ellen’s work by focusing on three areas, primarily to serve breast cancer patients on the East End of Long Island.
-Educational outreach about the importance of mammography and early detection to medically under-served communities of women;
-Psychosocial support services that address the broad range of issues facing breast cancer patients, survivors, spouses, families, and friends; and
-Funding research on improving understanding of pain management and methods for treating pain.
This year, the Foundation has pledged to underwrite the tomosynthesis system for The Ellen Hermanson Breast Center at Southampton Hospital. Without getting too technical, this machine is cutting edge and revolutionary because of its ability to take a 3-dimensional picture of the breast highlighting any abnormalities.
