Local Magazine Recognizes 3 Women For Helping Cancer Patients
(CBS) - Three women who are making strides helping cancer patients in different ways are among two dozen women recognized in this month's issue of Main Line Today magazine for making a difference in their communities.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but Lindy Snider (above) says she looks at cancer as a year-long battle. The daughter of Comcast Spectacor chairman Ed Snider runs Lindi Skin, a line of skin care products for patients receiving chemotherapy, radiation, and other cancer treatments.
The Bryn Mawr mom was recently treated for thyroid cancer:
"I'm no longer an outsider. I'm an insider and coming from that perspective, the fact of the matter is, it's a lonely process and it makes me more committed to reaching out even in more ways."
She says a lot of people give up on cancer treatments because of the effect it has on their skin. The magazine also recognized Robin Cohen and Adriana Way, co-founders of the Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation, which has been working for ten years to find an early detection test for the deadly disease.
