ABMA’S FARM HOSTS 3rd ANNUAL “PINK DAY”

FOR THE VALLEY HOSPITAL’S BREAST CENTER


Ridgewood, New Jersey November 24, 2017
 For the third consecutive year, Abma’s Farm celebrated “Pink Day” with hay rides and pumpkin picking on Saturday, October 14th. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Abma’s again donated a portion of the proceeds towards the Valley Hospital’s Breast Center Fund. Through this annual event, Abma's has collectively donationed $4500 to Valley, and this year's check for $2,500 is the largest one so far.

Abma’s Farm, which has been part of the Wyckoff landscape for more than 86 years, extends across 32-acres and raises 100 varieties of fruits and vegetables, as well as chickens and eggs. They boast of remaining “Bergen County’s only produce and poultry farm” and pride themselves on the Abma family tradition of hard work, honest values, and selfless service.  

The Valley Hospital Foundation, which raises philanthropic support for Valley, is grateful for this generous donation from Abma’s Farm.  

About The Valley Hospital’s Breast Program

The Valley Hospital’s Breast Program integrates cutting edge technology and physician expertise with a comprehensive, tumor-specific, evidence-based treatment plan. Valley Hospital Clinicians within the Comprehensive Breast Care Program do not just focus on the disease, but on the patient as a whole. These experienced physicians and clinicians work together to tailor a treatment plan to each individual patients’ needs and tackle complex cases with both skill and compassion. Our multidisciplinary, integrative approach brings together the skills and expertise of many different specialists as well as a full suite of complementary therapies, educational programs and support groups.

Last year, Valley enhanced services within the breast surgery program by opening a new state-of-the-art Breast Imaging Center located at the Blumenthal Cancer Center in the Luckow Pavilion in Paramus.  Valley patients can now receive the majority of their breast care services in one convenient location.  With this new enhanced space, clinicians who discover an abnormality during a routine office visit can schedule their patient for a diagnostic mammogram, fine needle aspiration or core biopsy on the same day.
