Pink Truck Project partners with Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Care

DWC/Pink Truck Project has partnered with Mary Jo Cropper Family for Breast Cancer located at Bethesda North Hospital.  DWC had the pleasure of meeting with Dr. Susan Weinberg and the Mary Jo Cropper Family for Breast Cancer staff a couple of weeks ago.  They advised that no person is turned away – even if you don’t have insurance or your scope of recovery is beyond what insurance pays. 

This article was provided by the Spring 2013 edition of the Tri Health Unity magazine…

“Health Care Hero: Susan Weinberg, MD.  Spending the past 15 years as medical director for the Breast Center at Bethesda North – and the last 30 on staff – wasn’t enough for this health care hero.  In 2009, Dr. Weinberg helped establish the Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Care.  And today, she’s turning that passion into a significant gift for the future of breast health, by donating her life insurance policy – 75 percent to the Cropper Center and 25 percent to Hospice of Cincinnati. 

Dr. Weinberg worked with her financial advisor and Bethesda Foundation to make her planned gift possible, and admitted it had never occurred to her to donate that way.  “I had no clue that I could do something like this,” she says.  But she’s glad she did.

“It’s just a feeling that you’re doing the right thing, that you’re helping the next generation and looking out for others.” Dr. Weinberg says.”

It is an honor to work with Dr. Susan Weinberg and her staff….DWC/Pink Truck Project is excited about our partnership.
