The Gyn-Onc Team is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Maxine Rosenblatt (née Shapiro), Honorary Chairperson of Gloria's Girls. Here is the condolence message by the Team:
"Dear dear Gloria’s Girls,
What a sad moment for all of us. Words truly would not make justice to adequately express what Maxine, Gloria’s Girls, Gloria, the family, mean to us …. but for us it will be a moment of silence, to celebrate their lives and all of your commitments and achievements, that are helping so many women and their families.
In memory, in respect, in love,
The Gyn Oncology Team"
