(Bay Shore, New York) — In support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month during the month of October, Tropical Smoothie Café in East Northport is hosting “Tropical Smoothie Breast Cancer Awareness Night” on October 27 from 6-9 p.m. to benefit Breast Cancer Help, Inc. The eatery is located at 532 Larkfield Road.

During that time, 20% of all sales proceeds will go to Breast Cancer Help, Inc., the Long Island Cancer Help and Wellness Center and research into the causes and cure of breast cancer. The first 100 customers will receive coupons for a free 12-ounce smoothie. Those in attendance from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win a free combo meal and will also get to try the latest drink from Tropical Smoothie Café — the Cranberry Craze.

“We would like to thank Tropical Smoothie Café for their support of Breast Cancer Help,” said Lorraine Pace, Founder and Co-President, Breast Cancer Help, Inc. “In addition to supporting our cause and raising awareness about the deadly disease, Tropical Smoothie Café provides its customers a number of healthy choices on its menu. However, until there is a cure for breast cancer, the best ways to fight this disease are making positive changes in their lifestyle and early detection.”

Breast Cancer Help, Inc. is a not-for-profit grass roots organization with a focus on action and advocacy to eradicate breast cancer. Founded in 1994 by Lorraine Pace, a two time breast cancer survivor, and Father Thomas Arnao, Breast Cancer Help, Inc. uses a four pronged approach to promoting education and awareness of breast cancer issues. The first of these prongs is the West Islip breast cancer mapping project initiated by Lorraine Pace, which mobilized patients and pinpointed breast cancer clusters. This original mapping project, which spearheaded the breast cancer environmental movement, has now spread to other parts of New York, the U.S. and internationally. Since its inception, the group’s goal has been to raise awareness and promote education for the cause, treatment, and cure of the disease; while maintaining a focus on action and advocacy to eradicate breast cancer. It has accomplished this by mobilizing patients into coalitions leading to breast cancer mapping projects, serving as advocates to change state and local laws to protect breast cancer patients, and working to bring about positive changes in protecting the environment. Breast Cancer Help, Inc. has helped to ensure that Long Islanders have access to the best possible diagnosis and care through the purchase of cutting edge medical and research equipment. It has also supported research at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. In 2003, Breast Cancer Help opened its Long Island Cancer Help and Wellness Center, now located at 32 Park Avenue in Bay Shore to provide increased cancer awareness to promote education and early detection while providing patients and survivors with much needed support.
