Ridgewood, New Jersey
For the second consecutive year, Abma’s Farm (www.abmasfarm.com) is celebrating “Pink Day” with hay rides and pumpkin picking on Saturday, October 1st from 10:30am to 4:00pm. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Abma’s is again donating a portion of the proceeds towards the Valley Hospital’s Breast Center Fund.
Abma’s Farm, which has been part of the Wyckoff landscape for over 85 years, extends across 32-acres and raises 100 varieties of fruits and vegetables, as well as chickens and eggs. They boast of remaining “Bergen County’s only produce and poultry farm” and pride themselves on the Abma family tradition of hard work, honest values, and selfless service.
Last October, farm owners Judy and Pamela Abma donated $1000 to The Valley Hospital Foundation. “The Valley Hospital is the perfect place to designate these funds”, explained Pamela Abma, “Breast cancer is so prevalent, and we wanted to keep this ‘local’ just like our approach to farming, so this donation to our local hospital’s breast center makes the most sense.”
The Valley Hospital Foundation, the fundraising arm of the Valley Health System, is grateful for this generous donation from Abma’s Farm that will be directed towards the Breast Cancer Fund.
About The Valley Hospital’s Breast Program
The Valley Hospital’s Breast Program integrates state-of-the-art technology and physician expertise with a comprehensive, tumor-specific, evidence-based treatment plan. Valley Hospital Clinicians within the Comprehensive Breast Care Program do not just focus on the disease, but on the patient as a whole. These experienced physicians and clinicians work together to tailor a treatment plan to each individual patient’s needs and tackle complex cases with both skill and compassion. Our multidisciplinary, integrative approach brings together the skills and expertise of many different specialists as well as a full suite of complementary therapies, educational programs and support groups.
In July of 2016, Valley enhanced services within the breast surgery program by opening a new state-of-the-art Breast Imaging Center located at the Blumenthal Cancer Center in the Luckow Pavilion in Paramus. Valley patients can now receive the majority of their breast care services in one convenient location. With this new enhanced space, clinicians who discover an abnormality during a routine office visit can schedule their patient for a diagnostic mammogram, fine needle aspiration or core biopsy on the same day.
