Nurse Practitioner Association Walks for Beauty, Life

Members of the Nurse Practitioner Association of Long Island, based in Hauppauge, N.Y., participated with cancer survivors in the Stony Brook University Medical Center and Ward Melville Heritage Organization annual Walk for Beauty, Walk for Life.

Proceeds from the 2010 Walk for Beauty, Walk for Life support breast and prostate cancer research at Stony Brook. The NPALI members who participated in the walk raised $500.

“We had a wonderful time and we are grateful that we were able to support this very important event,” said Linda Aumock, RN, NP, and Debbie Deierlein, RN, NP, co-chairs of the community service committee of the NPALI.

Walk for Beauty, Walk for Life began in 1994 as a community effort to raise awareness about breast cancer and establish a boutique for people with cancer. The Unique Boutique — a collection of shopkeepers who provide products and services for patients with cancer — and The Walk for Beauty Fund enable patients with cancer to purchase wigs, prostheses and other special products. Since 1996, the Walk for Beauty has supported breast cancer research at Stony Brook. In 2002, the Walk broadened its scope to include prostate cancer.
