New Jersey/NYC/CT/Eastern Pennsylvania ladies
I've seen a lot of postings from women who live not so far from where I live in Central New Jersey. Since I know that many women travel for treatment, I've been thinking it might be helpful to have a thread of our own to share resources - not only doctors but support groups, locations for Reach to Recovery, retail sources for wigs, post-mastectomy products, etc.
I'll start. I'm Joan and I was diagnosed with a Stage 1 IDC in December, 2011. It is my second time with bc, having undergone a lumpectomy for another Stage 1 19 years ago. The first time around, in 1992, I had my lumpectomy at Mt. Sinai Medical Center with Dr. Tartter and chemo with Dr. Ana Ferari, formerly of Mt. Sinai and now of NYU (I think). This time, I had a bilateral mastectomy with Dr. Gendler at Morristown Medical Center, my PS is Dr. Isaac Starker and am undergoing chemo with Dr. Fein in Somerset, who is affiliated with St. Peter's.
Anyone out there for whom this might be a useful thread?
