Founded in 2005, the Firefighter Cancer Support Network (FCSN) is a group of cancer survivors, caregivers and volunteers that was formed with one goal in mind: to provide timely support to fire and EMS employees and family members diagnosed with any form of cancer.
During a moving ceremony that involved several former cancer survivors/firefighters, the FCSN donated a bell to the North Shore-LIJ Health System’s Monter Cancer Center in Lake Success. In a symbolic gesture of “ringing in the good news,” patients will ring the 60-pound bell when they complete their courses of treatment. The ringing of the bell symbolizes leaving cancer in the past and looking towards the future. The bell was donated by the Smithtown Fire Department.
If you are a parent, you should watch for the key signs of type 1 diabetes in your children, including frequent urination and excessive thirst, and seek medical attention right away if you notice these signs in your children or in yourself.
This life-threatening affliction can appear to be other simple ailments. Therefore, awareness is all the more crucial.
Thanks to the generosity of two local families – Diana and John Colgate of Mill Neck, and Robert McLane of Locust Valley – Glen Cove Hospital’s Don Monti Cancer Center has been updated and redesigned to provide patients with a tranquil and spacious atmosphere while undergoing treatment.
“We are passionate about Glen Cove Hospital,” said Mrs. Colgate, a member of the hospital’s Advisory Council and the North Shore-LIJ Health System’s Board of Trustees. “Once I saw the oncology unit I knew that patients could benefit from a calmer and healing environment.”
