"This program is not only innovative, but it is also highly compassionate and therapeutic," said Dr. Seth Resnick, Director of Cancer Supportive Services at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York. "What better way to have a rewarding experience and generate a personal physical product as a form of individual expression that might serve to symbolize and embody some of the growth and meaning at which patients can arrive over their very difficult course with cancer. I know through my conversations with Fashion Fights Cancer, what they have given themselves is really a true gift. We at Beth Israel and CCCNY are pleased to contribute to this gratifying work for patients and providers alike."
"A cancer diagnosis and treatment is often overwhelming and difficult to manage. Support programs such as Fashion Fights Cancer offer a creative way to address and help patients cope with the psychological consequences of the disease. We feel fortunate that FFC has decided to partner with CCCNY, as it has been a well received and exciting new addition to our programming."
