The new lending library at University Medical Center at Princeton's Breast Health Center has been named in honor of Christina S. Walsh, whose foundation provides financial assistance and comfort to breast cancer patients and their families.
Christina S. Walsh was 32 when she passed away in August 2004.
She and her family were on a trip to Walt Disney World in June 2004 when she became very ill. Insurance would not pay for a private medical jet that was needed to transport Christina from Florida to New Jersey for treatment. Family members and friends pooled their resources to cover the cost.
In her final weeks, Christina was determined to provide relief to other breast cancer patients and their families. The foundation was established to carry out her wishes.
