Assemblywoman Jean-Pierre (D-Babylon) announced that she has introduced legislation to help combat breast cancer by promoting early detection and intervention (A.6731-A).
The resolution that was recently adopted by the Assembly declaring July 6, 2017, as “Got Checked Day” in the town of Babylon (K.251). The campaign is sponsored by First Company Pink to educate and inspire young women on breast health and the risks of breast cancer and coincides with an array of workshops and seminars being held in school districts throughout Suffolk County.
“Far too many women battle breast cancer each and every day, courageously doing everything they can to beat it,” Jean-Pierre said. “This legislation is absolutely vital to ensure that more women have the ability to get diagnosed sooner and doctors can safely treat this disease, because early detection does save lives.” – Assemblywoman Jean-Pierre
