My name is Nicole Dion and I'm fundraising for BIDMC's Cancer Center Fund. I'm passionate about this cause because of my personal experience with BIDMC. I see an oncologist at Beth Israel's Needham location because my family has a history of breast and uterine cancer.
I see my oncologist every 6 months for cancer screenings and tests. Undergoing these tests can be extremely stressful, but I've been fortunate enough to receive attentive care from BIDMC's compasionate nurses and radiologists. I find piece of mind knowing that I'm being proactive against cancer and that BIDMC has best-in-class screening technology. My goal is to raise awareness for breast and uterine cancer and ensure that BIDMC patients have access to the most advanced pre-screening technology.
While sitting in waiting rooms for biopsies and other tests, I have met patients who weren't able to catch their cancer early. I'm fundraising for these patients and so that BIDMC can continue to hire and train the best doctors in New England to help patients in their fight against cancer.
BIDMC's Cancer Center treats our family, friends, co-workers and loved ones and gives them hope in the most difficult situations. I hope you consider supporting my fundraising efforts!
