“We are honored to receive this recognition from Komen New Jersey, and proud of our partnership with Susan G. Komen both locally and nationally,” said Matthew Shaulis, Regional President, North America, for Pfizer Oncology. 

Silecchia has been a vital and devoted member of the “family,” for 15 years, volunteering several days a week as an office assistant, working on almost every signature fundraising event, in addition to day-to-day activities.
