Holy Name Medical Center's MS Center to Host Second Annual Awards Dinner, November 29 Mr. Chris Cimino, WNBC-TV Meteorologist to be Honored
The Holy Name MS Center is pleased to hold its Second Annual MS Center Awards Dinner and Dance which will be held on Thursday, November 29 at The Palisadium in Cliffside Park with cocktails beginning at 6:30 pm.
Holy Name Medical Center will present Chris Cimino, WNBC-TV Meteorologist, with the Lawrence R. Inserra Leadership Award for his tireless efforts on behalf of the MS Center and the patients it serves. This award is given in memory of Lawrence R. Inserra, Senior, who had inspired not just patients, families, and staff of the MS Center but the entire Holy Name community in his battle with the disease.
Mr. Cimino has a personal connection with Multiple Sclerosis after watching a dear childhood friend's mother suffer from the disease for many years. His relationship with the Holy Name MS Center began in 2004 when he was an Honorary Chairperson of the MS Center's Spring Fling Fashion Show—a position he currently still holds. In 2006, Mr. Cimino took his commitment public when he showcased the Holy Name MS Center on a special Giving Back segment on News 4.
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.
