Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Last Sunday, October 21, Dr. Judith Okun joined thousands of “walkers” in the “making Strides Against Breast Cancer” event at Manhattanville College.  The “nationwide event unites millions of walkers with a common purpose: to end breast cancer forever.” By walking we help make the world aware of the need for research to find cancer treatment and we raise funds for the American Cancer Society of NY and NJ.  This organization not only invests in breast cancer research to find, prevent, treat, and cure the disease, but it also provides free lodging and rides to treatment for breast cancer patients who need it, improves access to mammograms, and provides support for cancer patients and their families.  To learn more about the many ways you can fight back against breast cancer year-round, visit www.cancer.org/stridesonline. Donations can also be mailed to American Cancer Society, Westchester Region, 2 Lyon Place, White Plains, NY 10601 (Information in this statement was taken from the “making strides” brochure.)
