Glen Cove Cares About Glen Cove CARES
Prior to opening the city council meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 12, Mayor Mary Ann Holzkamp and the council members welcomed representatives from Glen Cove CARES, our city's preeminent cancer awareness and education group, and presented the women with a proclamation honoring the group's service to the City of Glen Cove. The mayor reminded all present that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and October 15 is National Mammography Day, and encouraged women to get mammograms and men to encourage their women to do so, adding that men are not immune to the disease. Mayor Holzkamp said, "Over 216,000 new cases of female breast cancer will be diagnosed this year and close to 40,000 women will die from the disease. Additionally, almost 1,500 new cases of male breast cancer will be diagnosed this year and over 500 men will die from it," adding that early detection and prompt treatment can significantly reduce suffering and deaths caused by this disease. Mammography, an X-ray of the breast, is recognized as the single most effective method of detecting breast changes that may be cancer long before physical changes and physical symptoms can be seen or felt.
