Sen. Hannon Reminds Residents of Bilingual Breast Cancer Support Program
During this Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Senator Kemp Hannon wants to ensure that all women are aware of the services here on Long Island that provide crucial support and information for them.
“The key to beating breast cancer is early detection,” said Senator Hannon (6th Senate District). “All women should take the time to get a mammogram and speak with a physician.”
One option for women who may not have healthcare or are seeking a low-cost mammogram in their community is to call the bilingual organization Sisters United in Health, which is part of the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program.
“Sisters United in Health not only help women to detect breast cancer early, they take the extra step to help women live healthy cancer-free lifestyles,” said Senator Hannon.
Too many women of color are being underserved and uninformed about breast cancer. The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program continually reaches out to women in all communities to make positive changes.
For information on where to go for a free or low-cost mammogram in your community, you can call Sisters United in Health/Hermanas Unidas en la Salud at: 1-800-559-6348. You can also visit www.adelphi.edu/nysbreastcancer.
