Recognizing the need for a community network in support of women’s cancers, The Coalition for Women’s Cancers at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital was formed. The local, volunteer-driven group is comprised of professionals and concerned friends with varied backgrounds and talents. This group has come together to create and sustain a supportive network for women affected by breast, ovarian and uterine cancers. The organization focuses on early detection and empowerment to bring about better health care and an improved quality of life.
The CWC is headed by Susan Barry Roden with Stacy Quarty as the group’s Vice President, Lee Alleluia as Secretary and Wendy Scheerer as Treasurer.
