Raia Joins Adelphi In Mother’s Day Mammography Campaign

May 7, 2007

Assemblyman Andrew Raia (R,C,I,WF-East Northport) joined with Adelphi Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program in their “Peace of Mind” Campaign to urge women to get mammograms.

“Early detection is the key to fight breast cancer and I commend the men and women at Adelphi for their good work. I hope that this Mother’s Day people will urge their loved ones to get a mammogram,” said Raia.

The hotline has been in existence for 27 years and is a project of the Adelphi University School of Social Work on Long Island. The program is funded by the New York State Legislature, Department of Health, and through grants and contributions. All services are free.

For more information or to locate an accredited mammography facility, 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 whom are women who have had breast cancer.
