Some 200 guests moseyed over to the Mendham farm of Sol and Meri Barer, longtime supporters of Overlook, to enjoy a good old barn dance and dinner to benefit advances in breast cancer surgery at Overlook Medical Center.
Hosted by the Overlook Foundation, the October 5th Boots & Bow Ties event featured the inspiring words of breast cancer survivor Virginia Cepeda, a young wife and mother from Summit, who was surrounded throughout the evening by family, friends, and many of her Overlook care team.
Dr. Louis Schwartz, chair of radiation oncology and medical director of the CyberKnife Center at Overlook, received the foundation’s 2019 Medical Marvel award. For nearly four decades, Dr. Schwartz has been caring for patients at Overlook and was the first radiation oncologist in the state to treat patients with radiosurgery technology starting in 1995.
