Adelphi Breast Cancer Hotline receives donation

Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, PC, and New York Breast Reconstruction Associates, located in Great Neck, has made a donation to support the work of the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program. “The mission of the Adelphi Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program is to advocate for and support breast cancer patients through their journey to recovery,” says Dr. Ron Israeli, MD, FACS, a founding partner of the plastic surgery practice. “As a plastic surgeon specializing in post-mastectomy breast reconstruction, I see first-hand how the Adelphi Program is able to genuinely help patients diagnosed with breast cancer” he says. “ I am proud to be a member of the Adelphi Program advisory board and to continue to support the great work that they do.”

Says Hillary Rutter, executive director of the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program, “Our program educates, supports and advocates for breast cancer patients and we rely on the support of grants, funders and community based organizations to provide free services. We are so very grateful for the generous donation by the doctors at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, PC for allowing us to empower consumers to take control of their health and recovery.”
