After her four children graduated from college, she earned degrees in physical therapy psychology, and exercise physiology. While attending college, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and when she recovered, spent ten years as a member of the Living with Breast Cancer Program, organizing and maintaining the lending library and teaching breast self-exam. She has been a breast health educator, speaking at colleges, factories, stores and community centers and for 10 years she taught the exercise program for the Arthritis Society.

Barbara Ehrenpreis was referred to the Adelphi Breast Cancer by the hospital where she was receiving chemotherapy. She joined a support group and her life took a different turn. After completing the group, Barbara volunteered to be a hotline volunteer. That led her to the decision to attend the Adelphi School of Social Work and completed a Masters Degree in Social Work.

Today Barbara is a Licensed Clinical Social Work, working for NorthWell Health Hospice Care Network, providing support to hospice patients on the Palliative Care Unit at NorthWell Manhasset, as well as in their homes.

Cindy Kaye-Fink was 36 years old with two young children and a full-time job as a court reporter when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She reached out to the Young Women’s Support Group at the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program where she met with others in her situation and gained the support she needed to go on. In 2010 breast cancer returned. After a mastectomy, reconstruction and more chemo, today she is in remission and giving back by becoming a volunteer with the Adelphi program. She still meets monthly with the group of women from her original support group.
