  • Dr. Kathleen Toomey-Medical Director  Steeplechase Cancer Cntr, at RWJ Somerset Somerville, N.J.

  • Ellen Levine - LCSW, OSW-C Program Director. Cancer Support Community
  • Frank Barbosa - Cancer Hope Network - Support Volunteer.

As the compiler, publisher and illustrator of Surviving Cancer: Our Voices & Choices, Behr was invited by Raymour & Flanigan to do a presentation of her now highly acclaimed book which has received three medals – two golds, for a best in health publication. The book contains 70 articles by doctors, oncologists, survivors and more, including top cancer professionals from the Somerset Area.

Rather than doing another book signing or individual talk, Behr decided to present this panel discussion. The concept for the book began with a panel discussion held at the Center for Contemporary Art during a show entitled “Image Early” containing Behr’s sculptures, made from restructured radiation cradles. The shapes depict many feelings and experiences expressed by cancer patients.

Raymour & Flanigan is in our community. RWJ Steeplechase Cancer Center, Sisters Network, Cancer Support Community, Cancer Hope Network and Surviving Cancer: Our Voices & Choices are all an important part of our environment as well. Come support us – we are here to give support when we are needed.

This promises to be a special evening. Come join us!
