Westchester Fit is raising awareness for colorectal cancer in support of one of its members, Ryan Droege, a colorectal cancer survivor. Ryan was diagnosed on January 16, 2017 with stage 3 colon cancer. From February 6th, 2017-October 23rd, 2017, Ryan underwent rigorous chemo and radiation treatments, as well as tumor removal surgeries. Fast forward to the present day, Ryan, now 43, is cancer free, and has jumped back into his CrossFit workouts with a new sense of purpose. He is now dedicating himself to raising colorectal cancer awareness through fitness.
Your contribution to White Plains Hospital will support the Center for Cancer Care in its efforts to introduce a Digestive Cancer Navigator program. Within our community, we have seen an increase in patients diagnosed with digestive cancers. To better serve and care for our patients, White Plains Hospital has invested resources in physicians, surgeons and specialists to treat these complex cases. In addition, we believe our patients would greatly benefit from the support of a Digestive Cancer Patient Navigator, guiding patients through diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. The role of the navigator may include:
Support patients in need of assistance with one-on-one contact with treatment providers
Provide seamless care through their patient experience
Decrease barriers in accessing treatment
Coordinate care throughout the White Plains Hospital system
Connect the patient to all ancillary services available to them
The event will begin at 9AM, there will be heats running every 30 minutes, with the last heat scheduled for 12PM. Please arrive early to fill out a waiver and warm-up!
