Breast Cancer survivors and activists Saranne Rothberg, founder of The ComedyCures Foundation, and Geri Barish, who created the Long Island-based 1 in 9 Breast Cancer Action Coalition, will be the featured speakers for Mather Hospital’s 2012 Breast Cancer Victory Day on Saturday, Sept. 29 at noon.
The annual gathering is a day of triumph and togetherness for anyone who has been touched by breast cancer. Hundreds of survivors, family members and supporters will hear inspirational speakers, receive information on treatment and services, and receive emotional support from others who have shared their experience. Some participants will travel to the event via the Long Island Rail Road’s complimentary Victory Train, which makes all local stops from Penn Station to Port Jefferson. There is no fee to attend Victory Day.
The event begins at noon and lunch is provided to all participants following the event. Registration is required. To register, visit www.matherhospital.org/victory or call 631-686-7878. Breast Cancer Victory Day is sponsored by the Mather-St Charles Health Alliance and Astoria Federal Savings. The Fortunato Breast Health Center at Mather Hospital will be among the participants offering information at Victory Day.
