Cancer Support Community Central New Jersey (CSCCNJ) has kicked off their planning for their second annual Embrace Hope Luncheon. This fundraiser/luncheon will feature guest motivational speaker, Dr. Deborah Morosini, sister/sister-in-law of the late Dana and Christopher Reeve. In addition, there will be a basket auction and vendor shopping.
Dr. Deborah Morosoni is a pathologist at AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals working in Translational Medicine Oncology who has been greatly inspired by both Dana and her husband, Christopher Reeve, the late actor who played Superman. Dana, a healthy and vital non-smoker, died from Stage IV lung cancer within a year of being widowed. Following Dana’s death in March, 2006, her sister Deborah became a passionate activist in the lung cancer advocacy movement. Deborah believes that all of us can transform our own personal tragedies into inspired actions for the larger good. By raising lung cancer awareness, she hopes to save lives, and erase the long-held stigma surrounding this illness.
This event will be held on Tuesday, April 24, 2012 at 11 a.m. at Hamilton Farm Golf Club in Gladstone, New Jersey. The cost to attend is $100 per ticket and includes lunch and valet parking.

All proceeds from the event go to support CSCCNJ’s free programs and services for people with cancer and their loved ones.
