Playing to Win for Breast Cancer Research

On October 31, more than 130 Women’s Division members and friends gathered at the Harmonie Club in Manhattan for the division’s annual “Cards for a Cause” event. The Halloween-themed afternoon featured lunch, shopping, mahjong and canasta while raising funds for cancer research. In her welcoming remarks, Women’s Division president Carol Roaman highlighted recent national news about Einstein and Montefiore that exemplified the world-class research and patient care they offer. She spoke about the McDonald twins, separated in October at Montefiore by a multidisciplinary team of physicians led by Einstein and Montefiore’s James T. Goodrich, M.D., Ph.D., an expert in craniopagus surgery, and Oren Tepper, M.D., a renowned plastic and reconstructive surgeon and the director of the craniofacial surgery program. The surgeons shared 3-D imaging models with the group; the guests then saw a video that explained the groundbreaking 28-hour procedure. Ms. Roaman and executive vice presidents Jackie Harris and Helen Radin served as event co-chairs, alongside honorary chair Andrea Stark.
