Last week, the surgeons, staff, and patients of Long Island Plastic Surgical Group participated in an awareness event for the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program. LIPSG brought together 20 original creations for the program’s auction and fundraising event which will take place on March 16, 2017 at Adelphi University in Garden City.
Patients and staff members gathered in the lobby of the Garden City location to display their creations. News12 showed up to cover the event. LIPSG surgeons Dr. Barry Douglas and Dr. Noël Natoli, who both specialize in breast reconstruction after cancer, are taking part and turning in their “art bra” creations for the program. LIPSG is a long time sponsor of this event and a passionate supporter of the Adelphi program.
