When you take care of yourself, you’re taking care of your family.

[Women's Health]

The Adelphi New York Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program is urging women to get mammograms.

“October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a significant time to remind women to be proactive about their health and get mammograms,” says Hillary Rutter, the director of the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program. “Often women will put their own health on hold as they take care of family members; we want send out the message that when you take care of yourself, you’re taking care of your family.”

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 can also get emotional support from the hotline’s specially trained volunteers, most of who are women who have had breast cancer.

The hotline has been in existence for 32 years and is the oldest breast cancer hotline in the country.  It is a project of the Adelphi University School of Social Work on Long Island.  All services are free. The web site is: www.adelphi.edu/nysbreastcancer
