Support Connection Gears up for Annual Cancer Walk

CORTLANDT MANOR, N.Y. – Support Connection, a nonprofit organization that provides free support services to people affected by breast and ovarian cancer, held a kick-off breakfast last week for its 23rd annual Support-A-Walk, which takes place Sunday, Oct. 1, at FDR State Park.

The free breakfast was held for the fourth consecutive year at the Ashikari Breast Center at NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital. Support Connection staff and volunteers were on hand to answer questions about Support-a-Walk and the organization.

Founded in 1996, Support Connection is based in Yorktown Heights but, through its toll-free services and website, serves people throughout the country. To learn more about Support Connection or the Support-a-Walk, visit or call 914-962-6402 or 800-532-4290.

Vote for Change… in Election Campaigns

I don’t have any proof at hand that fake news has overtaken even town-level politics, though nothing would surprise any ...

Veterans Day is a Teachable Moment

Dear Dr. Linda,

I read your column last year about Veterans Day. I would like to see that same column so that parents and teachers can use it to share with their children.
