Senator Bonacic today has joined with the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program in their annual Mother’s Day Campaign to urge women to get mammograms. 

“Mother’s Day is a significant time to remind the women in our lives to get mammograms,” said Senator Bonacic.  “I hope that this Mother’s Day women will take the time to make an appointment for a mammogram; it is important for each and every one of us to be proactive about our health. We have all learned that early detection provides the best chance for successful treatment.”

For more information and to locate an accredited mammography facility nearby, call the Adelphi New York Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program at 1-800-877-8077. Callers can also count on emotional support from the hotline’s specially trained volunteers, most of whom are women who have had breast cancer. 

The hotline marked its 30th anniversary last year. It is a project of the Adelphi University School of Social Work on Long Island. All services are free. The web site is:
