Holy Name Medical Center's MS Center Announces First MS Awards Dinner, October 13
Larry Inserra, Jr. and Susan Zurndorfer To Be Honored
Teaneck, NJ - The Holy Name MS Center is pleased to hold its first MS Awards Dinner and Dance which will be held on Thursday, October 13 at the Rockleigh Country Club in Rockleigh, NJ.
Holy Name Medical Center is proud to present Larry Inserra, Jr. and Susan Zurndorfer with the Lawrence R. Inserra Leadership Award for their tireless efforts on behalf of the MS Center and the patients it serves. This award is named after Larry Inserra's late father, Lawrence R. Inserra, who inspired not just patients, families, and staff of the MS Center but the entire Holy Name community in his battle with the disease.
"It is our privilege to honor Larry Inserra, Jr. and Susan Zurndorfer at our inaugural MS Awards Dinner," said Kevin P. McCarthy, Executive Director, Holy Name Health Care Foundation. "We recognize their steadfast commitment, support and leadership to the Holy Name MS Center. These two exceptional individuals have given tirelessly to all of the patients and families affected by multiple sclerosis."
Multiple sclerosis strikes individuals most often in the prime of their life - between the ages of 15 and 40. It is estimated that 400,000 people in the United States live with this debilitating disease, with a new diagnosis every hour. The effects of MS challenge people in unique ways and reverberate through families, friends and communities.
The MS Center at Holy Name Medical Center has been confronting this disease head-on since 1985. For more than 25 years, the MS Center has become a beacon of hope providing individualized care for MS patients and their families at Holy Name; investigating modalities that modify the disease; helping to reduce symptoms; improving overall function; preventing progression; and promoting independence. Holy Name's MS Center is the only nonprofit center in Bergen County offering this level of service and expertise.
