September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month for families, caregivers and charities alike. In co-observance of this, The Breslow Center for Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa in Paramus launched a Teddy Bear Collection effort for Valley Hospital’s Butterflies Program. This amazing program is for infants and children who have been diagnosed with life-threatening or life-limiting illnesses, and offers the special care they need in their home where they are most comfortable.
“It is heartbreaking to hear about children suffering with illness. Teddy bears have a unique ability to put smiles on their faces and I hope that this can bring them some comfort”, states Gary D. Breslow, MD.
The Breslow Center collected 67 teddy bears to Valley Hospital’s Butterflies Program, and plans on making it an annual event. For more information on the Butterflies Program call 201-291-6335.
