Islip Supervisor Encourages Early Detection

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As a result of earlier detectionthrough screening and increased awareness—and better treatments, a woman's risk of dying of breast cancer dropped 38 percent between the late 1980s and 2014, translating into 297,300 fewer breast cancer deaths during that time.

However, breast cancer is still the second leading cause of cancer death in women, with only lung cancer killing more women each year. Additionally, there remains a large racial gap in mortality, with African-American women experiencing a 42 percent higher death rate compared to whites. Today, the overall chance that a woman will die from breast cancer is about 1 in 37 (about 2.7 percent).

“I encourage all of our female employees to schedule their routine mammograms. You can reduce your risk of breast and other cancers by making healthy choices like eating right, staying active and not smoking. It's also important to follow recommended screening guidelines, which can help detect certain cancers early,” said Supervisor Angie Carpenter.

Islip Supervisor Carpenter Offers Helpful Tips When Making Charitable Donations, In Response to Recent Disasters

Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter would like to remind all Town residents to be cautious when donating to charitable causes, and to make every effort to ensure that their generous donations are being directed as intended.

“It’s human nature in difficult times like these, to want to come together to help, but unfortunately, we also see others trying to take advantage of these sad situations,” said Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “Millions of people in the Caribbean, Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico are in dire need of help, in the aftermath of the tragic earthquake in Mexico, and by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria.
