In March of 2003, Breast Cancer Help, Inc. opened its Long Island Cancer Help and Wellness Center in Lindenhurst with the goal of increasing cancer awareness to promote early detection, while providing patients and survivors with needed support.
Since then it has held numerous lectures to increase early detection and inform Long Islanders about medical advances and how to live healthier. It has also developed ongoing programs to provide cancer patients and survivors with the assistance they need to overcome cancer through complementary integrative modalities that meet their psychosocial needs. These include a monthly support group, art therapy, massage therapy, and yoga.
The Center has established one of New York’s most active cancer support and wellness programs.
