Mineola, NY – To raise awareness of early detection for breast cancer and to celebrate the lives of those impacted by the disease, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and breast cancer survivors will gather for a “Glow of Hope” program on Wednesday, October 5th at 6:00pm in the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building in Mineola. When there is sufficient darkness, all in attendance will gather outside for the official “Pink Illumination” of the building’s dome. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an initiative to increase awareness of breast cancer issues, especially the importance of early detection.
“Glow of Hope serves not only as a tribute to those who have been affected by breast cancer, but also as a reminder for each and every one of us to carry the message of the importance of early detection,” said County Executive Mangano. “Early detection is the key in fighting this disease – not only in October but throughout the entire year.”
Guests are invited to arrive at 6:00 p.m. for light refreshments, followed by a brief program in the Ceremonial Chambers. The illumination will take place at approximately 7:00 p.m. All are invited to attend.
