Busy Month For The Breast Cancer Hotline

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is also a time to draw attention to the help that is available to people with breast cancer and also a time when local businesses and organizations help the effort by conducting fundraising events.

Here are a few of the fundraising activities taking place during the month to benefit the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program.
