In signaling a major milestone in her fight against breast cancer, Nassau University Medical Center patient Bertha, 25, recently completed her chemotherapy and rang the Bell of Hope in celebration of her victory over the first phase of her treatment.

Lotenberg said that Bertha will be surrounded by the love and support of her physicians and friends at NUMC.

"To Bertha, ringing the bell is a small victory that will give her the strength to continue her cancer treatments in the coming months," she said. "We wish her the best of luck a she enters the next phase of her journey."
