“When I was diagnosed for the second time with breast cancer last year, the Rosemary D. Gruner Memorial Cancer Fund was a Godsend for me. With their help and support my life was made a lot easier while going through treatment. I’ve hosted 14 years of Breast Cancer Tournaments at the New Paltz Golf Course where I have worked for the last 17 years. This year a portion of the proceeds benefited the Rosemary D. Gruner Memorial Cancer Fund, let’s say I wanted to pay it forward. Thank You Benedictine Health Foundation for all you do for everyone facing a cancer diagnosis.”
Deborah Bozydaj, Pro Shop Manager, New Paltz Golf Course
“The Rosemary D. Gruner Memorial Cancer Fund helps many of my patients make it through the first two years of cancer treatment. Because of time lost from work and high out of pocket expenses for health care, patients need financial support during treatment. Without this fund, our patients might not go through with radiation and other treatments that allow them to live healthy cancer free lives!”
Dr. Zoe Weinstein
“Thank you to the Benedictine Health Foundation for the financial support through the Rosemary D. Gruner Memorial Cancer Fund when I needed it during treatment. Your contributions to individuals and the community are beyond measure.“
Kristin Flynn, Assistant Professor & Program Coordinator of the Fashion Program at SUNY Ulster
