image004Solomon Katz Breast Center Hosts Authors of “Beauty Pearls for Chemo Girls”

Recently, Sound Shore Medical Center of Westchester’s Solomon Katz Breast Center hosted authors of the book, “Beauty Pearls for Chemo Girls”, at a special Breast Cancer Awareness event

NEW ROCHELLE – November 6, 2009 – – The Solomon Katz Breast Center was the site for the last in a series of Sound Shore Medical Center’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month events. Debbie Kiederer and Marybeth Maida, authors of the newly published book, “Beauty Pearls for Chemo Girls”, were presenters at the October 28th offering. They shared information on how women can look and feel their best while dealing with the side effects of cancer treatment.

During Ms. Maida’s bout with breast cancer, she was devastated with the loss of her eyebrows. When she endeavored to research information on what she could do to improve her appearance, Ms. Maida was unable to find any source that helped. Vowing to make beauty tips and feel better information readily available for others – who may follow in her footsteps, the idea for “Beauty Pearls for Chemo Girls” was borne. With the help of Debbie Kiederer’s retail cosmetics industry experience and the invaluable assistance from many breast cancer survivors, a wealth of helpful techniques are now available in the first-ever book devoted to the subject.

The authors, along with a fashion expert, shared information, offered demonstrations and gladly signed copies of their books. Among the many guests were chemotherapy patients, administrators and staff of Sound Shore Medical Center and the Solomon Katz Breast Center as well as oncology professionals from the area. During the wine and cheese reception, the presenters were given a long-stem pink rose and a free copy of the book was given to each guest.
