On Oct. 1, Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology began a month-long campaign at Roosevelt Field Mall with the goal of raising awareness for breast cancer. Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology is teaming up with Simon Malls and will Paint the Mall Pink to encourage women to get their annual mammograms and protect their health.
Zwanger-Pesiri locations are throughout Long Island and offer advanced breast imaging systems, such as 3D Mammography with C-View software and 3D Automated Breast Ultrasound System. Representatives from the company will be at Roosevelt Field Mall to answer questions, and present mall patrons with educational materials on exams offered, as well as distribute special giveaways promoting the importance of breast health.
Mall visitors will also have the opportunity to donate money and pin a ribbon on the Wall of Hope, offering words of encouragement to those fighting breast cancer or in memory of loved ones lost to the disease. All donations will benefit Mondays at Racine, an organization that provides breast cancer patients with complimentary services and supportive therapies every Monday.
At a time when few were addressing the mental and emotional impact of being diagnosed with cancer, Mondays at Racine set out to attempt to offset its ravaging side effects and provide solace, integrity and support to its community members stricken with this disease. In that time, the program has grown to become a safe haven for patient’s emotional well-being, as well as an important supportive resource center within our community. It has also helped hundreds of women deal with their affliction in a gentle and proactive way.
