WEST HAVEN, Oct. 22, 2019 — From left, Janine Hoffmann, senior administrative assistant to Dr. Brigid Killelea, the interim director of the Smilow Breast Program at Yale New Haven Hospital; Bethany Larkin, assistant patient services manager at the Smilow Breast Center; and Camille Servodidio, program manager of women’s oncology services at the Smilow Cancer Hospital, receive a $34,000 check from Mayor Nancy R. Rossi and West Haven Breast Cancer Awareness Committee members Anthony Cordone and Beth A. Sabo on Tuesday, Oct. 22, at City Hall.
The funds were raised in part at the committee’s 19th annual Icy Plunge for the Cure in January, which celebrated the 20th anniversary of the West Haven Breast Cancer Awareness Program, and at the Dubel’s Cafe Golf Tournament in October 2018.
The money will maintain funding for the next two years for patient information binders, which are given to each person diagnosed with breast cancer at Smilow.
Since its inception in 2000, the Breast Cancer Awareness Program has collected about $700,000 for breast cancer research and education.
