From Lt. Nick Montagnese, Stamford P.D.
On Saturday October 1st at 10:30 am there will be a breast cancer awarness event in Veteran's Park, PAINT THE TOWN PINK, there will be no road closures for the event, see flyer below. A great event to support, any questions or issues please give me a call, Lieutenant Nicholas Montagnese 203 977 4850Thank You & God Bless You, Lt. Nick & all at the Stamford P.D. for sending this along and for making sure that the 'PAINT THE TOWN PINK' events go off without a 'hitch'!
Anyone who has 'battled' breast health issues--patients, family and their friends--knows just how important the proper support is for one to achieve improved well-being after what can be a 'harrowing experience'.
There can never be too much 'concern', caring, technical expertise, medical brilliance, scientific innovation, top-level diagnostic and surgical equipment, pre-diagnostic, pre-surgical, spiritual and pastoral counseling.
We are grateful for all the 'rehabilitation' and 'wellness' services available to us...before, during and AFTER any breast health crisis!
When we ladies walk into Stamford Hospital's 'Women's Breast Cancer' for whatever procedure our docs may order...it is impossible to convey just how much we appreciate the courteous and compassionate reception we receive there.
It really 'matters' that someone cares.
It really matters that someone informs our nervous husbands and children when we are 'running a little late' and why we are.
It really matters that the staff at Stamford Hospital is always there for us and for those we care about, at a time when we feel so very vulnerable.
Having 'battled' breast problems for the last 41 (forty-one years!), I can tell you that I've seen it all at many different facilities. The 'service' at Stamford Hospital, for me, equals none and I will elaborate in future articles.
Yes, I've sat with you in 'braless misery', waiting for my own name to be called at 'the Tully Center'--many times.
In relative anonymity, I have felt both helpless and hopeless right along with you at times.
And so I say, 'God Bless those who have devoted their lives to helping women and men who are diagnosed every year with some sort of breast malady'.
They make a bad situation 'better' and we never forget them!
May God Bless such as these and shine His Face upon them and upon all those who will be 'PAINTING THE TOWN PINK' this October 2011!
With Love In Christ
