On the first day of National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, a ribbon was cut dedicating the new “O” Path and Vision of Hope Garden located near the lake at Town of Hall in Lindenhurst. Supervisor Rich Schaffer, Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez, Councilman Tom Donnelly and Town Clerk Carol Quirk saluted the members of the Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition, the donors and all the volunteers for their dedicated service in creating the beautiful garden that adorns a brick paved “O” Path, angel statues, arbor, benches and engraved stepping stones. The Vision of Hope Garden and “O” Path, which is next to the Breast Cancer Bow Garden, was created to bring comfort and salute all women faced with breast, ovarian and gynecological cancers. The BBCC was also thanked for its efforts in helping to promote awareness and increase education about ovarian and gynecological cancers.
