Assemblyman Joseph S. Saladino today joined the Adelphi New York Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program in their annual Mother’s Day Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign urging women to schedule a mammogram.
“Early detection and prevention is the best, proven way to combat breast cancer,” said Assemblyman Saladino. “Mother’s Day is a significant time to remind women to schedule and get a mammogram screening.”
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 also can get emotional support from the hotline’s specially-trained volunteers, most of whom are women who have had breast cancer.
A project of the Adelphi University School of Social Work on Long Island, the hotline marked its 30th anniversary last year. All services are free and you can find more information by visiting their website at www.adelphi.edu/nysbreastcancer.
