"Be strong and courageous.... Encourage one another and never give up..... Remain positive together and we become stronger."

Founded in late 1994, The South Fork Breast Health Coalition is a nonprofit grassroots organization of concerned citizens, East End Area Office of The American Cancer Society, SUNY Stony Brook, Southampton and other East End Town Officials. The Coalition works closely with the Southampton Hospital Breast Center.

(From L to R) - Barbara Wilson (Town Justice), Peter Daniels (CEO, Southampton Hospital), Kevin McDonald (Vice President of the Group for the South Fork), Fred Thiele Jr. (New York State Assemblyman), and Joseph Romanosky (Southampton Village Mayor).

The Coalition, along with other breast cancer groups across Long Island is committed to finding the answer to the high incidence of breast cancer in our area.

In addition to helping identify the causes of breast cancer, our mission is to help educate women about the importance of self breast exams and annual mammograms as preventative measures. Through various support programs the Coalition is also dedicated to helping relieve the day to day pressures for breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy by helping them to manage family and home commitments during this stressful period.

Our goal is to have 100% of the East End female population, age 16+ performing self breast examinations and 100% of our female population, age 40+ receiving annual mammograms.

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
