ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
For many years the Chairperson of the Madeline Fiadini LoRe Foundation for Cancer Prevention, Madeline LoRe, spearheaded major projects in her community, Bayonne, for the health and well being of its citizens. She has brought desire and innovation to the cause of ensuring that the people of Bayonne will always avail themselves to the highest quality of health care services. As a result of her volunteer efforts, two major centers were opened at the Bayonne Hospital in 2006: The John Fiadini Outpatient Oncology Center and The Madeline Fiadini LoRe Women's Center.
When the Bayonne Medical Center, (formerly Bayonne Hospital), became a for profit institution, Madeline looked to the community once again to identify their needs. The state of the economy coupled with the high unemployment rate quickly brought a group to the forefront. This group is the working poor, (our constituency), uninsured people over the poverty level. Once again, with the focus on cancer prevention, Madeline rallied her supporters behind the plan to bring much needed cancer screenings to those who could not access those tests. The result was the establishment of the Madeline Fiadini LoRe Foundation for Cancer Prevention in June 2008.
As we have grown and extended our affiliations, so has our demographic base. We offer services to anyone in the surrounding areas who can access the hospitals that have partnered with us: Jersey City Medical Center/RWJ/Barnabas Health, CarePoint Health, Metropolitan Family Health Network, Hudson River Radiology, and Bayonne Dermatology Associates.
"Our Mission is to make cancer prevention programs available to the community we serve. Our Focus is to grant access to the tests and/or screenings necessary to those individuals who may otherwise be denied. Our hope is to enrich the Life of every individual in need, one at a time."
It is our hope to make Cancer tests and/or screenings available to this underserved constituency. These individuals are uninsured and above the poverty level with no access to the costly tests and/or screenings. It is the Foundation's goal to make these tests available to those individuals. The cancer tests and screenings we have identified are: Mammography, PSA, Oral Cancer, Skin Cancer, Cervical Cancer, Colonoscopy. Colposcopy, and Anoscopy.
