Hoda Kotb, NBC "Today" Show co-host and breast cancer survivor, delivered the keynote address at Beth Israel Medical Center & St. Luke's and Roosevelt Hospitals Breast Service Luncheon at the Pierre Hotel in New York on April 18.
Her hilarious and inspirational speech was followed by an exclusive fashion show by designer Zang Toi. The event, now in its 21st year, raised $600,000 to benefit breast cancer programs. Proceeds from the luncheon will benefit the Appel-Venet Comprehensive Breast Center at Beth Israel Medical Center and the Comprehensive Breast Center at St. Luke's and Roosevelt Hospitals.
These programs are two of the largest in New York City, providing diagnosis and treatment, educational programs, screenings, genetic counseling, clinical research, support groups, and wellness programs for thousands of women and their families.
