Pink Aid supports bilingual services at Adelphi Breast Cancer Program

Pink Aid, based on Long Island and Connecticut, presented a grant to the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program to assist their bilingual social workers to provide counseling, patient navigation and support services to underserved women.

Pink Aid’s mission is to help underserved local women survive breast cancer treatment with support and dignity, to provide screening to women in financial need and to empower breast cancer survivors to heal by helping and inspiring others. The Adelphi Breast Cancer Program established in 1980, offers emotional support and assistance to women and men coping with breast cancer.
