MORRISTOWN, NJ - Breastfest New Jersey comes to Morristown on Sunday October 13.

The event will run from 2pm - 8pm.
Two local women, Karen Rosen of Morristown and Lauren (Lolo) Gaffney of Randolph founded Breastfest New Jersey to honor the memory of breast cancer surgeon Dr. Jan Houston who was fatally struck by a vehicle in 2017. The inaugural Breastfest New Jersey 2018 raised $15,000 for the I Love You More Foundation providing mammograms for over 100 patients.

She credits Houston with giving her the strength to face her diagnosis and treatment. Gaffney, a musician and singer with Soular Bone and The Myth and The Legend was also diagnosed with breast cancer at age 35.
The rock n roll fundraiser will include performances by four local bands - Bobby Syvarth Band, Soular Bone, Spare Tire Band and The Thingama Jigs - a complimentary buffet, door prize giveaways throughout the day, a cash bar with drink specials and more.
