Hauppauge, NY –On September 6th, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker honored Stefanie Taylor, the Senior Regional Manager for the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition Northeast Region, for her work on raising awareness about ovarian cancer and connecting those fighting it with resources. 

“According to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, an estimated 1 in 78 women will develop ovarian cancer in their lifetime,” said Legislator Anker. “Despite this, there are no diagnostic tests or screening tools for early detection. We must continue to raise awareness about ovarian cancer, and recognize the women who are leading the way, like Stefanie Taylor.”

In her work, Stefanie cultivates strong relationships with the public, healthcare, and corporate communities and to provide educational materials and resources about ovarian cancer. In addition, she promotes programs and local initiatives that help improve the quality of life for those affected by ovarian cancer. Stefanie, a Mount Sinai resident, is also a member of the Suffolk County Department of Health Services Cancer Prevention and Health Promotion Coalition and the Cancer Access Consortium, organizations that promote information and resources to individuals and communities affected by cancer. 

In addition, during the General Meeting, legislation introduced by Legislator Anker was approved to recognize September as Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in Suffolk County. In honor of those battling the disease, the William H. Rogers Building will light up teal on the evenings of September 22nd through the 24th.
