MAMMOGRAPHY SCREENINGS SAVE LIVES

Legislator Richard Nicolello today joined with the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program in their annual Mother’s Day campaign to urge women to get mammograms.

“Mother’s Day is a significant time to remind women to get mammograms,” says Legislator Nicolello. “I hope that this Mother’s Day women will take the time to make an appointment for a mammogram.”

For more information and to locate an accredited mammography facility nearby, call the Adelphi New York Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program at 800-877-8077. Callers can also get emotional support from the hotline’s specially trained volunteers, most of who are women who have had breast cancer.

The hotline marks its 30th anniversary last year. It is a project of the Adelphi University School of Social Work on Long Island. All services are free.
