Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,I,C-Batavia) today announced that the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program is conducting their annual Motherís Day Mammography Campaign. The organization is reaching out to New York women and asking them to help raise breast cancer awareness by getting a mammogram.
ďAs we celebrate Motherís Day in the coming weeks, itís important that we still remember how adverse a breast cancer diagnosis can be to a loved one,Ē said Hawley. ďRaising awareness about breast cancer is essential for advancing treatment and prevention in our families and community. Even though the medical community has made great strides in breast cancer research, to date, the most effective way to fight breast cancer is early detection. I would encourage all women to help raise awareness for this cause by getting a mammogram this Motherís Day.Ē
