To the Editor:

I would like to share my experience with your readers about Evan Lerner, who is running for a seat on the Bridgewater-Raritan Regional Board of Education.

For the past six years I have served as the Chief Executive Officer of the Young Survival Coalition (YSC), the premier organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer.

I have known Evan for these past six years, as he is a committed supporter of YSC. Evan is not a supporter in the typical sense, he goes above and beyond writing us a check from time to time. For the last 13 years, Evan has ridden in our annual 200+ mile East Coast bicycle ride, called the YSC Tour de Pink, benefiting young women affected by breast cancer. During this time he’s raised over $60,000 for YSC. This past year he even flew to Florida to ride in our South ride and raise additional funds, and I understand he signed up to do so again in April 2018.

Evan brings a unique and special passion to the YSC Tour de Pink. Rather than simply pedaling from point to point, he goes out of his way to help survivor riders who may be struggling or talk about YSC’s important work to new riders.

I have little doubt that Evan would bring a similar level of passion and commitment to his duties as a member of the Bridgewater-Raritan Regional Board of Education, as I believe that helping others is part of his fabric.

I highly recommend that you elect him as your representative on Tuesday.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Merschdorf

Chief Executive Officer, Young Survival Coalition

To Borrow or Not to Borrow?

If you are like me, you have debt. Whether it’s your mortgage, student loans, or credit cards – or all of the above – most people carry debt. It helps us pay off important but high cost expenses over time and makes them affordable and it helps us through difficult times when perhaps our cash flow isn’t what we need it to be. However, sometimes it just feels ...

The (Wrong) Advice Your Doctor Gave You

It's all too often that a patient comes to my clinic afraid to squat because their Doctor had told them "it's bad for your knees."

Patients seem confused when I smile back and ask, "How did you just sit down and stand up out of that chair if you aren't able to squat?"

You see, advice like this is handed out all too often, and I'm on a mission to have ...
