It was Pink Aid’s honor to present Dr. Richard S. Zelkowitz with our first Pink Heart Award at our 7th Annual Luncheon & Fashion Show on October 5th, 2017 at Mitchells of Westport. An esteemed and treasured breast cancer oncologist at Norwalk Hospital’s Whittingham Cancer Center, “Dr. Z” lives the Pink Aid mission each and everyday.
After experiencing his mother’s breast cancer journey and hard fought battle, Dr. Zelkowitz, who considered cardiology switched his focus to oncology, and then furthered his interest in breast oncology. He made it his life’s mission to provide not only the best, cutting edge medical care, but compassion, love and a personal relationship to help breast cancer patients survive and thrive.
Thousands of patients and families have been helped and supported by Dr. Z’s inimitable strength, wisdom, positive attitude, sense of humor and unmatched bedside manner.
Join us in continuing to celebrate Dr. Z’s compassionate heart by writing a tribute and/or making a donation in his honor!
