Connie Dwyer Breast Center Set to Open at Trinitas

In light of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Connie Dwyer, a known philanthropist, will be opening her second Breast Center in early October. The Center is located at the main campus of Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Elizabeth

Just last year, we had the pleasure of previewing the new Breast Center at Trinitas while gaining a great understanding of Connie’s reasoning behind starting the Connie Dwyer Breast Cancer Foundation. Connie herself suffered from breast cancer, which was life changing for her. She was first diagnosed in 1999 and had a double mastectomy. Her own battle caused her to become mindful of the other women out there fighting breast cancer, especially those who come from low-income backgrounds. She feels that EVERY woman who has breast cancer should be able to tell their story just like she has. She believes that they should not be denied proper care due to certain circumstances. 

Often times, women from disadvantaged backgrounds do not have access to the services needed to treat breast cancer, and therefore their stories are never heard. They don’t even have the option to help themselves. This is why the Connie Dwyer Breast Cancer Foundation specifically helps women in need, ensuring that they are receiving the proper care. This includes screening, diagnosis, and treatment, as well as, community outreach and education programs. The Breast Center is state of the art, with innovative technology such as 3D imaging, and highly qualified, bilingual specialists. 

Connie Dwyer’s story is one of determination, bravery, and resilience. Because of her, hundreds, even millions of women will be able to share their journeys and battles with the world, encouraging even more to step up and help others who are in need. We are so excited to see the finished Breast Center next month and even more excited about the fact that more and more women will be able to receive assistance. 

Hip New Jersey & New Jersey Family At SoJo Spa Club

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino headed to Edgewater’SoJo Spa Club one summer morning to shoot a collaboration with New Jersey Family magazine. She spent the day exploring the beautiful spa, and taking in everything it has to offer!

New Jersey Family magazine included SoJo Spa Club in their Bucket List series. Their readers named SoJo the best spa experience in the state, and we can totally see why!

With their luxe amenities, multiple pampering options, a variety of immune-boosting saunas, and a rooftop infinity pool that looks out to breathtaking NYC views, we can’t think of a better place to relax this side of the Jersey Shore.
