Assemblyman Bill Reilich (R,C,I-Greece) today called for women to remember themselves this Mother’s Day. Assemblyman Reilich has joined with the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program, in reminding constituents about the importance of mammography.
“This Mother’s Day, I urge my constituents to remember the importance of your health,” said Reilich. “Breast cancer is a growing epidemic that can be treated best through early detection. You give to your families and your communities each and every day; on this day, remember to give the gift of health and peace of mind to yourself.”
The program offered by Adelphi reaches nearly 4,000 women and men a year in New York State. Adelphi states that, “Many women are so fearful of a breast cancer diagnosis that they avoid getting a mammogram. And, yet, the reality is that the vast majority of women do not have breast cancer.
