In September, 2012, Moms Who Kick Inc. made a pledge to NS-LIJ to donate $25,000 to the Breast & Ovarian Cancer Studies being conducted by Dr. Iuliana Shapira and Dr. Annette Lee of the Feinstein Institute for Research. While we had five years to pay off the pledge, Moms Who Kick Inc. was able to fulfill it in just five short weeks! As a result of this pledge, the Moms Who Kick name is displayed on the Benefactor’s Wall at the Monter Cancer Center in Lake Success, NY.

The Breast and Ovarian Cancer Specimen Bank Related Investigations
at The North Shore-LIJ Health System
This ground-breaking translational research study, conducted through collaboration between the medical and surgical oncology programs and the renowned Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, is poised to contribute new knowledge and potential treatment alternatives obtained from breast and ovarian cancer specimens being collected through a multi-institutional specimen bank. Aimed at improving survival rates for women with breast and ovarian cancers, the study is the first of its kind to uncover and validate biomarkers for early detection, prediction of disease course and outcome, and treatment response and risk of relapse.
If you or someone in your family has a first generation history of Breast or Ovarian Cancer, you may qualify to participate in this important research simply by providing a blood sample. Contact Mary Keogh-Research Nurse at the Feinstein Institute at (516) 562-3491.

2013 Model Mom Contest Winners
The Annual Moms Who Kick
Model Mom Contest Winners Ceremony
Painting a Picture of Breast Cancer
By Laney Liner
Thursday, April 22, 2012, marked the introduction of the Moms Who Kick Model Mom Contest Winners Ceremony. Moms Who Kick is a public 501 (c) (3) charity dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research and in support of women’s health. Funds are raised through various events and the sale of a yearly calendar. Each of the contest winners will appear in 2013 calendar, which will be available in October 2012.
The location of the event, Seasons 52 Restaurant, was a perfect setting. A single item on their menu does not exceed 475 calories. Their strong nutritional focus supports the healthy vibe that Moms Who Kick members express on a regular basis. Seasons 52 is located in Garden City, NY.
All of the contest winners smiled with excitement as their names were called. Each winner has their own story around how they or someone close to them has been personally touched by cancer. This information accounts for 80% of the contest judging criteria. Please visit MomsWhoKick.com to learn more about this contest.
An addition to the evening was Model Mom, Ms. February 2012, Deborah Adler who is a licensed Art Therapist and a five-year breast cancer survivor. She took the audience on a journey of her experience with this disease. As an Art Therapist, she used her skills to aid in her own healing.
She used a journal to capture the grueling days of her cancer fight. It included words and colorful drawings to depict what it looked and felt like to be weak, nauseous and bloated – characteristics of one’s self that does render them whole.
Having had breast cancer myself, I could relate to Deborah’s imagery and feelings. When you have a double mastectomy with reconstruction, you cannot hide the fact that doctors are ripping off your femininity in order to save your life. That fact is accompanied with so many emotions that it is hard to express, but Deborah did an excellent job explaining just what was going on with her and kept the audience glued to her presentation.
Deborah explained that she used a technique called Reiki (the use of universal energy) during her treatments. “It made me feel incredibly relaxed, at peace with my body, and feeling overall very centered. It allowed me to focus on my inner self through meditation and positive visual imagery. It was energizing and uplifting to my spirit and overall being,” Deborah said.
This night was filled with such strength, motivation and kindness. I want to send a BIG SHOUT OUT of THANKS to all the attendees, our continued strong supporters and the following companies who supported this event with their attendance: Glaceau Vitamin Water, Stella & Dot, Theresa’s Home Cleaning, Krystal Blue International and Cathy Albergo, R.M.T.
We feed off each other’s energy and thank you for spreading the word about our efforts to kick cancer’s butt.
