On October 1, 2011 we saluted breast cancer survivors everywhere. Our Fashion Show took a look back at the beautiful women you have known on stage and screen, who all heard the words, “you have breast cancer.” They are, Bette Davis, Myrna Loy, Greta Garbo, Ingrid Bergman, Jean Simmons, Jennifer Jones, Hattie McDaniel, Julia Child, Vivian Vance, Rosalind Russell and Paulette Goddard. The Warrior Angel Survivor Models wore vintage clothing from the Edwardian Era, the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and 60’s.
Thank you, to our beautiful models - All survivors- all magnificent- all Warrior Angels!

Dr. Ron Israeli, our Honoree, is the recipient of the Alice Roosevelt Longworth Award. A plastic surgeon practicing in Great Neck, he is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and specializes in post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. He provides women diagnosed with breast cancer as well as women that carry the breast cancer genetic mutation a comprehensive array of options in breast reconstruction tailored to their needs.
A leading advocate for breast cancer patients, he is currently on the advisory board of the Adelphi University New York State Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program and was honored by the American Cancer Society with their 2007 Physician of Distinction Award.
Dr. Israeli completed his plastic surgery training at the Massachusetts General Hospital-Harvard Medical School, and his surgery residency at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. A Clinical Assistant Professor at Hofstra University Medical School, Dr. Israeli actively teaches his techniques to plastic surgery residents at North Shore University Hospital and Long Island Jewish Medical Center.
In his spare time, Dr. Israeli enjoys clay sculpture and has had training in classical European sculpture techniques. He is currently completing a life-cast sculpture project with a number of his breast reconstruction patients for an exhibit of his work entitled ‘Breast Reconstruction – Restoring Wholeness.’ This exhibit is being coordinated with the Osler Medical Society at North Shore University Hospital this October.
The No Surrender Breast Cancer Foundation is honored to present Dr. Israeli with the Alice Roosevelt Longworth Award for his achievement in medicine, his artistic ability and, above all, the personal care he gives to each woman who walks in his door frightened and is able to leave as a confident, strong, beautiful survivor.
