The Staten Island Yankees Take On Breast Cancer

The Staten Island Yankees are taking on Breast Cancer this morning with a little help from Staten Island University Hospital and you guys, the fans. The whole program is to honor breast cancer survivors and raise awareness for this disease by giving out information and free mammograms through an appointment. Here is the official press release from Jillian Wright of the Staten Island Yankees. I urge everyone who can attend this to do so because this is a great cause for anyone affected by this cancer and is a great cause overall.
