Press release from: Breast Cancer Help, Inc.

/ PR Agency: PRMG
(Bay Shore, New York) — Lorraine Pace, Co-President, Breast Cancer Help, Inc., says the passing of Evelyn H. Lauder means she has lost an ally in the fight against breast cancer. Ms. Pace says her organization will continue Ms. Lauder’s mission to find a cure and eradicate this deadly disease.

Ms. Lauder, who was also a breast cancer survivor, died on November 12 of ovarian cancer at the age of 75. She was the daughter-in-law of the cosmetics founder, Estée Lauder. In 1989, Evelyn Lauder learned she had breast cancer. She later became an advocate of women’s health and, in 1993, formed the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, one year after Ms. Pace formed the West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition for Long Island, Inc. and began her breast cancer mapping project.

Ms. Pace said she had the opportunity to meet with Ms. Lauder on several occasions to discuss the prevalence of breast cancer, adding that the current Women’s Imaging Center and Breast Health Center at Good Samaritan Hospital was inspired by the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center that opened at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan in 2009.

“We are losing a very sincere, compassionate and kind woman who was determined to do something about breast cancer,” Ms. Pace said. “Having met with Ms. Lauder, I was inspired by her sincerity, caring and drive to find a cure and eradicate this insidious disease. We at Breast Cancer Help, Inc. will miss her and will continue her mission to put an end to breast cancer once and for all.”

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.
