Dear Newsday reader,
While Long Island has many wonderful attributes, we also have the unfortunate distinction of being a high-risk region for breast cancer. Despite advances in research, preventive care and treatment, far too many of our friends and loved ones have been touched by this disease. That's why Newsday continues using its resources to put a spotlight on breast cancer through our annual Life's Victories program.
Throughout the month of October, Life's Victories will provide you with inspirational stories of hope from Long Islanders who are winning the battle against breast cancer.
We invite you to read their personal profiles in Newsday and on newsday.com/lifesvictories,
If you pass by our Melville headquarters this month, you'll see a special pink hue cast on our building, a very visible reminder of our continued support.
