The Valley Hospital Foundation Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement with a Radiothon
Ridgewood, New Jersey November 14, 2016 – For the 2nd consecutive year, The Valley Hospital Foundation has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.
Occurring this year on November 29, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
Throughout the month of November, in honor of Men’s Health Month, The Valley Hospital Foundation has been encouraging the community to learn about and support Valley’s men’s health programs, in particular those within the Urologic Oncology Center which treat prostate cancer.
Additionally, The Valley Hospital Foundation is working with the radio station Q104.3FM to help spread the word about Valley’s Urologic Oncology Program and prostate cancer. On that day, radio personalities Jim Kerr and Shelli Sonstein will be broadcasting the “Rock and Roll Morning Show” from 5:00AM until 9:00AM, airing interviews with Valley clinicians and touting the many benefits of Valley’s prostate cancer services.
The Valley Hospital has established the Urologic Oncology Center at the Blumenthal Cancer Center. Designed for those who have been diagnosed with prostate, bladder, or renal cancer, or those seeking a second opinion, this multidisciplinary center will provide the most up-to-date information regarding all aspects of urologic cancer care.
