Adelphi Breast Cancer Program October Awareness Campaign

“New beginnings” is the October Breast Cancer Awareness Month slogan of the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program. The campaign is urging women to call to find out how to get a free or low-cost mammogram and attend upcoming programs. “And, as always,” says program director Reyna Machado, “talk to one of our trained hotline volunteers or licensed social workers.”

For 40 years, the program, a project of the Adelphi University School of Social Work, has provided New Yorkers with information and emotional support as they battle breast cancer. The hotline, which operates every day of the year at 800-877-8077, is staffed by breast cancer survivors—women and men who have gone through a diagnosis of breast cancer and emerged to help others on their journey.

“We want to let New Yorkers know that we are here and always ready to help”, says Machado. The program can be reached by phone at 800-877-8077 or online at
