Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano joined with New York State Assemblyman Michael Montesano, Commissioner of the Nassau County Department of Health Dr. Lawrence Eisenstein, members of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC), as well as dozens of survivors and their families at a ceremony on Thursday, September 8th to celebrate National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. The dome of the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building in Mineola was illuminated in teal to commemorate the women who have been threatened by ovarian cancer, as well as those who have lost their lives.

“As we light the dome teal we reflect upon all those battling ovarian cancer, those who have survived and all we must do to beat this terrible disease,” said County Executive Mangano. “Until we have a cure, our best weapons include: knowing the symptoms, early detection and timely treatment. Together, we can and will make the critical difference and save lives.”

The American Cancer Society estimates 22,800 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the United States in 2016 and approximately 14,240 women will die from the disease. Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancers in the United States.

The mission of the NOCC is to save lives by fighting tirelessly to prevent and cure ovarian cancer and to improve the quality of life for survivors. It provides information to assist the newly diagnosed patient, to provide hope to survivors and to support caregivers.
