Current Initiatives

Breast Cancer Help is proud of our accomplishments. However, after we achieve a goal we set our sites on the next. There is much work to be done and together we are working to improve breast cancer education, care, and prevention. Please contact Breast Cancer Help to assist in any of our projects.

Every year Lorraine Pace, a breast cancer survivor and a founder & co-president of Breast Cancer Help, makes breast cancer awareness presentations to schools, corporations, and other organizations interested in learning more about breast cancer in both men and women. If your high school or company would like to arrange for a breast cancer awareness program and/or for a mammogram van to come, please call Breast Cancer Help at (745) 520-3075

Curves Weight Loss Marathon to Benefit Breast Cancer Help
Breast Cancer Help and local area Curves have joined forces to initiate the 2004 Breast Cancer Help/Curves Weight Loss Marathon. Beginning on January 1, 2004 members of Curves at over 60 Long Island locations are participating in a weight loss marathon to benefit Breast Cancer Help, Inc.

Cancer Help and Wellness Center
On March 28, 2003 Breast Cancer Help opened its Cancer Help and Wellness Center in a unique partnership with the Village of Lindenhurst and Stony Brook University Hospital. The Center provides increased cancer awareness to promote early detection, while providing patients and survivors with needed support. The center is dedicated in Memory of Maureen McGrory, a life-long resident of Lindenhurst who lost her gallant fight against breast cancer.

clothingcheckNovalis Radiosurgery
To help fulfill our goal of ensuring that Long Islanders have access to the best possible medical care and diagnosis available, Breast Cancer Help makes monthly lease payments for the Novalis Radiosurgery Equipment at Stony Brook University Hospital. The technology is used for the non-invasive delivery of a precise dose of high-energy radiation to a tumor located within the skull. It is available in the radiation oncology department of Stony Brook University Hospital and Medical Center.

Cancer Registry
The Cancer Registry is a database of over 22,000 cancer inpatients and outpatients new to the State University Hospital dating back to 1984. It tracks the cancer location, stage, histology, treatment, survival and epidemiological characteristics of cancer patients. Breast Cancer Help is working to expand the information collected from cancer patients to include data such as occupational and residential history over the previous 20 years.
