Broadway Best for Breast Cancer
Join co-hosts Caroline Kohles, JCC senior director of Health and Wellness, and Broadway performer Beth Kirkpatrick to learn about the dramatic impact that music and music therapy can have on healing. Dr. Alison Estabrook returns to introduce her colleague Gabriel Sara, M.D., medical director of the Infusion Suite at Mount Sinai West. A brilliant oncologist, Dr. Sara created The Helen Sawaya Fund to reframe clinical treatment for cancer, and has partnered with The Louis Armstrong Department of Music Therapy at Mount Sinai to bring the healing power of music into the hospital to help those being treated for cancer.

Music therapist Christopher Pizzute, from The Louis Armstrong Department of Music Therapy, will open the show with a mindfulness music meditation and demonstrate how music is used in all aspects of treatment. Experience yoga with Whitney Chapman, accompanied by live harp music performed by breast cancer survivor Amy Camie. Be sure to stay until the end to hear Beth sing one of her favorite numbers from a Broadway show—all without leaving your sofa!

Beneficial for everyone, but geared specifically to those living with or recovered from breast cancer, this special program is cosponsored by the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan and Dr. Alison Estabrook, a nationally recognized breast cancer surgeon, currently Professor of Surgery at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. She was founder and chief of the Comprehensive Breast Center, Mount Sinai West, in New York City, and co-founder of Breastlink New York, an affiliate of Radnet. It is endorsed by JCC community partners Sharsheret, The Nia Technique, and the American Cancer Society
