October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and the Marina Cafe is asking for your help in supporting our local community.
Every Monday during the month, the Marina Cafe is donating 20% of our guests’ total checks (excluding alcohol and tax) to the Florina Rusi Marke Comprehensive Breast Cancer Center.
Located at Staten Island University Hospital, the Florina Rusi Marke Comprehensive Breast Care Center is the first care center in Staten Island to offer a full range of breast-related treatment and to address all breast health needs in one place.
Their multidisciplinary team of world-class medical professionals helps patients and their families with breast cancer education, early detection, treatment, and aftercare. The center offers services that include advanced breast imaging, counseling, genetic testing, leading-edge surgical techniques, innovative reconstruction techniques, medical oncology, and radiation oncology.
Facilities like the Florina Rusi Marke Comprehensive Breast Cancer Center are so important for Staten Island because each year people are diagnosed with breast cancer and there is a lack of hospitals that offer the comprehensive services required to treat all patients at different stages of the process.
According to the American Cancer Society, it’s estimated that 316, 120 people in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017, and 40,6010 people will have died from breast cancer by 2018. The New York State Department of Health estimates that every year, more than 15,000 women in New York are diagnosed with breast cancer and that approximately 2,600 women die from the disease — basically, one in eight women will develop breast cancer during her life.
As a long-standing and beloved business having served Staten Island for more than 35 years, the Marina Cafe believes we can make a positive contribution to spread awareness of breast cancer.
Come join us on Monday, and we will donate 20% of your check (excluding alcohol and tax) to the Florina Rusi Marke Comprehensive Breast Care Center. With your help, we can beat the disease that affects our mothers, sisters, daughters, aunts, nieces, grandmothers, wives, girlfriends, friends and neighbors.
