Cancer Advocate Lorraine Pace hosted a fundraiser at her home for West Islip High School’s Class of 1959 and 1960. The fundraiser raised $2,000 to support "Women & Men Against Prostate Cancer" with their goal in bringing awareness to this curable disease, especially with early diagnosis.
Two years ago, Legislator Steven J. Flotteron was able to get Legislation passed recognizing September as Prostate Awareness Month in Suffolk County. Now, every year, the H. Lee Dennison Building in Hauppauge will be illuminated in blue from September 17 through the 19th in order to increase awareness.
In addition, Men & Women Against Prostate Cancer and Catholic Health Services have partnered in increasing awareness of Prostate Cancer Prevention by offering Free Screenings at six of their campuses; St. Catherine of Siena, Mercy Medical Center, Good Samaritan Hospital, St. Charles Hospital, St. Joseph Hospital and St. Francis Hospital.
Legislator Flotteron was joined by fellow Board Members of Women and Men Against Prostate Cancer organization and classmates of West Islip High School’s Class of 1959 & 1960 in support of the cause.
