Breast Surgery Combined with Tummy Tuck and/or Liposuction
by Charlotte Rhee, MD, F.A.C.S., P.C.
Many of my patients come to me seeking help with the changes that can occur after childbirth. Following childbirth, a woman’s breast can grow to uncomfortable proportions or just the opposite can happen. A woman’s breast can
actually lose volume and shrink, resulting in the breast appearing “deflated.”
Additionally, a large number of women come to me seeking help with the
post partum changes of their abdomen. During pregnancy the skin and abdominal wall muscles are stretched. Following childbirth, the abdomen can
protrude and the skin can be loose or sag. In some cases, the abdominal muscles can be so
weakened that the individual may look like she is still pregnant. Despite daily workouts including
sit ups and crunches, a tummy tuck may be needed to restore these muscles.
ing breast reduction. Both groups of women want to have breasts that are proportional to their
body size with the most natural result possible. In certain situations, a breast lift is also needed
to tighten lax skin. The laxity can be the result of pregnancy or weight loss. When a breast lift
is needed, I utilize the lollipop scar technique. A breast lift procedure is very similar to a breast
reduction. The only difference is that with a breast reduction, breast tissue is removed.
Combined Breast/Tummy Tuck and Liposuction Procedures.
Many of my patients who have breast surgery also have other procedures performed at the
same time. This allows for one surgery and one recovery. The most common combined procedures performed by Dr. Rhee are breast surgery, whether it is a breast reduction or augmentation,
combined with tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty. For those patients

One of the Arts Alive Festival’s signature events is
Ephemeral, an exhibition that explores the human
relationship with the transitory and invites visitors
to take part. It takes place at Adelphi University

Meet These Long Island Women
by Vivian Swift
Long Island Style
Brittany Grimes
Barbara Kaplan
Phyllis Levy
For Brittney Grimes, modeling isn’t all about being beautiful on the runway. As a poet, published
author, and spoken-word performer, Brittney says
that being a fashion model is just part of leading an
artful life.
Born and raised in Baldwin, Brittney became a
literary prodigy at the age of eight in 1995, when
she published her first book, Poetry For A Child By
A Child. She then won first place at Showtime at the
Apollo by reciting one of her own verses, Children
of the World.
Network television came calling and Brittney was
featured on Nickelodeon, Good Morning America,
and CNN Person of the Day. Her backlist (four books
in total) earned her the kind of recognition – glossy
magazines and the New York Times – and awards –
from the National Organization for Women, National
Council of Negro Women, and the National Committee for the Furtherance of Jewish Education – that
would have made her Ivy League material when it
came time to apply to college. But Brittney chose to
“stay true to my Long Island roots” and she recently
graduated from Hofstra University with a B.A. in
English and Creative Writing. Brittney often speaks
to local civic and academic organizations about her
range of accomplishments and about her upcoming
young adult novel to be published in 2014.
In building her career as a print and runway model,
Brittney incorporates the skills she’s learned in her
public life as a poet and motivational speaker. She
cites Kathy Ireland (LONG ISLAND WOMAN, August 2013)
as her role model in using the fashion world as a
portal for future entrepreneurial success. She is following Kathy’s advise to stay “grounded and strong
and secure.”
In other words, Brittney just has to stay true to her
Long Island roots.
To fully experience Barbara Kaplan’s definition of
Long Island Lifestyle, you’d need to spend an entire
day dropping into health and beauty seminars,
self- and home-improvement workshops, travel and
wealth management forums, and spiritual and educational gatherings. Lucky for you, she’s made that
easy! She’s the lifestyle visionary behind the annual
Over 50 Fair that brings together Long Island’s choicest purveyors of quality-of-life products and services.
This year’s fair was held on September 29 at the
deluxe Melville Marriott and featured over 80 exhibitors of life enhancing specialties including pop-up
restaurants sponsored by some of Long Island’s most
accomplished chefs.
Barbara’s rise as a lifestyle guru began a mere five
years ago when she organized a large scale event for
a Long Island charity. To her surprise, she discovered
that she had a gift for event planning. It’s a skill that,
even with a Master’s degree in Applied Math from
Stony Brook University, she had never factored into
her career goals. But the proof is in the pudding:
her Over 50 Fair has been a resounding success ever
since she began holding it four years ago. The fair
has become an inspirational life-enrichment resource
for Long Islanders “of a certain age” and of a certain
sophistication and adventurousness.
But there’s more to Long Island lifestyle than this
one fair. So in April, Barbara puts on the All Kids Fair,
a mother and family-centric celebration that brings
together mental, physical, and spiritual resources
from yoga classes to college-planning counselors.
From her childhood in East Meadow to raising her
two sons in the Roslyn school system, Barbara has acquired the expertise to know what it takes to create a
happy and healthy Long Island lifestyle. Find her best
life recommendations at www.over50fair.com and
www.allkidsfair.com.
Phyllis Levy lives for high fashion. As a couture
style consultant who works exclusively on Long Island, she is all about matching exceptional women
to exceptional clothes. She focuses on clothing that
will express and enhance the Long Island lifestyle.
Casual, trendy, but also tasteful and luxurious: the
Long Island look is what Phyllis calls Cool Girl Chic.
For nearly two decades Phyllis Levy has outfitted
her clients a la mode as an independent wardrobe
consultant for the Carlisle Collection. Carlisle is a
high-end fashion house with European-sourced design – their cashmeres and woolens come from the
same Scottish mill used by Chanel. The company
can offer affordable couture by presenting its immaculate fashion-forward garments only through
private showings. In her one-on-one consultations, Phyllis helps women of all ages transform
their fashion aspirations into a wardrobe that
make them look and feel confident, classy, and au
courant.
As a high schooler in Deer Park, Phyllis showed
an early talent for spotting quality style when she
was appointed to the Teen Fashion Board for Macy’s
department stores on Long Island. After graduating
from Hofstra with a B.A. in English, she gave up a
budding teaching career in the Cold Spring school
system in order to launch herself as an entrepreneur, starting with her own fashion consulting
business called We’re Sisters Too. And then she
discovered Carlisle, a house that epitomizes the
esthetic and quality that she most values in couture.
Now Phyllis is growing the Carlisle brand throughout Long Island. By mentoring like-minded fashionistas as Carlisle consultants, Phyllis will bring
impeccable style and design to every walk-in closet
from Great Neck to the Hamptons. Her fashion hot

Long Island Women in History
H
ave you ever driven around Long Island and wondered about the genesis of street names or parks or
the story behind historic homes, museums, gardens,
and other cultural venues? In Natalie Naylor’s fascinating new book, Women in Long Island’s Past:
A History of Eminent Ladies and
Everyday Lives (The History Press,
2012), you’ll learn about many
of the women who helped to
transform Long Island into the
unique place it is today.
Dr. Naylor, a retired Hofstra University history professor, provides
a glimpse into the lives of hundreds of women who impacted Natalie Naylor
Long Island history. Some lived their entire lives here
and others spent time during their formative years,
but all left a lasting impact: religious leaders, aviators, philanthropists, writers, artists, political activists, scientists, entrepreneurs—and four first ladies.
You learn not just about these intriguing and courageous women;
you’ll learn about the history of Long Island, from the very early Native
Americans and Colonial settlers to more recent times. Professor Naylor
gives her readers a passionate account of women who worked for the
common good, fought for women’s rights, paved the way for equality,
and helped to create and foster this wonderful place we call home. As
Dr. Naylor writes, “they are almost invisible in the records and histories of the last four hundred years.” With this book, Natalie Naylor has
changed that.
I recently sat down with Professor Naylor to learn more about the
book and the women who inhabit its pages.
How did the idea for this book come about?
It started more than three decades ago. I was teaching grad courses
in Women’s history and Long Island history at Hofstra and a student
named Loretta asked why there were no women in the textbook. So I
started researching women in Long Island history. The first thing I did
was consult Notable American Women, a standard reference
work

Social History at Hofstra in 1968. I retired from Hofstra in 2000, but I continue to be closely involved with
a number of Long Island historical organizations.
How did you choose the women you included in
the book?
They had to have lived and worked on Long Island
during their years of accomplishment. In addition to
notable women, I also wanted to include ordinary
women whose names haven’t made it into the history books, but whose accomplishments are important. I cut off the book around 1970 because it’s
hard to view the recent past in perspective.
Which story was your favorite?
My favorite—and I plan to write more about her—
is Rosalie Gardiner Jones. She was known as “General Jones” in the suffrage movement. She led a hike
to Albany in December 1912 through snow and rain
to present a petition to the Governor and another to
Washington, DC in 1913 for the Wilson inaugural.
She was a little eccentric but a real maverick.
Any plans for a sequel?
No sequel is planned, but certainly more articles. After the book was
written, I learned how many Long Island women have been key to the environmental movement. Women not only donated land for many of the
preserves on Long Island—named in memory of their husbands—they
were also instrumental in starting environmental organizations and garden clubs and fighting for clean water and against the use of pesticides.
How will women of the future view the history of our time?

Catching Up with Carol
by Carol Silva
“I’m the Luckiest Guy I Know”
O
ctober 4, 1980, Manhasset’s Frank Bice was Captain of the Siena College football team. Frank was having a good game against St. John
Fisher in Rochester. He’d just grabbed his fourth interception of the
season when a St. John receiver split. Frank hit him as hard as he could.
“I didn’t get my head up in time. I landed on my back. I couldn’t feel
anything. I broke my neck. They called an ambulance.”
A priest got in the ambulance and prayed Hail Marys on the way to
Strong Memorial Hospital. Emergency room doctors removed his helmet and jersey. They took X-rays. Then they told Frank he was paralyzed. The priest gave him the Anointing of the Sick – the

Three months later Frank was flown to Manhattan’s

yourself.”
A family priest from St. Mary’s, Manhasset also visited. “It
was a little strange. He didn’t talk. He just whispered in my ear, ‘Thank
you Jesus. Thank you Jesus.’ But it was what I wanted from a priest. I
had enough friends.”So Frank started repeating it. “It helped me focus
on what I had to be grateful for. I’m alive. I have a great family, friends, a
bright future. I started to become grateful for my new life.”
“I’m the luckiest guy I know. Because God has taken me to places I
wouldn’t have gotten if I didn’t have this injury.” He worked on Wall
Street for 14 years, but found a better fit teaching and coaching Lacrosse and football at his Connecticut boarding school. “The kids carried me on and off bus.” Frank got his Masters at Yale and now teaches
and coaches at Sacred Heart Academy in West Hempstead. He delivers
online life’s lessons, ministers as a Deacon back at St. Mary’s and his
first book is titled Your Cross is Your Gift.
Frank says we can’t control whether we get a cross to carry, but we can
choose our attitude. “First, ask God ‘Where’s the gift in this?’ And when
we’re going through a tough time the best way out is to help someone
else! It forces you out of yourself. You’ll be rewarded 10-times over!”
Frank’s attitude? “It’s 33 years later and I still
consider myself the luckiest person who ever
lived.” He means it. O

THE LONG ISLAND WOMAN INTERVIEW
Wanda Sykes
What a Wandaful World
On TV, she’s one of the funniest sitcom ensemble
players of recent years (Curb Your Enthusiasm,
The New Adventures of Old Christine). On film,
she’s a kid-friendly voice in the animated
Over the Hedge to Ice Age: Continental
Drift and a sassy presence in such
grown-up comedies as Pootie Tang
and Evan Almighty. And onstage in
front of a microphone, well, she’s
Wanda Sykes, brave, honest and
funny.
Born in Virginia and raised in
the suburbs of Washington DC,
Sykes wasn’t exactly cracking
jokes from an early age. She
was simply mouthy and blunt
– perhaps too much so for her
army dad and banker mom.
“When I was younger, I talked a
lot,” Sykes confessed during our
recent conversation. “I would say
funny things that would get me
in trouble. It was being outspoken
rather than being funny.”
But the approach, perspective and
delivery would shift in junior high
school. “That’s when I knew I could make
my friends laugh, my teachers and all. I don’t
think there was `a moment’ I knew I was funny. I
started making my peers laugh, and I thought, `Okay,
I have something here going on.’ But I was a good student. I
didn’t want the title `class clown’ because I knew my parents would not
be happy about that. They would just think I was at school goofing off.
So I remember asking my classmates not to vote for me for class clown.”
Sykes did perform during her school years – but it was behind a drum
kit. “I was in a band. Yeah, I used to play a lot,” she recalls. “I still have the
drum set; it’s somewhere in a storage unit right now.” The comedienne
doesn’t remember much about her school performances except that she
began playing in fifth grade and that one high-school production she
was in was set in a nightclub, so her band was the actual group playing
in the club. Asked if she ever thinks of getting the snares out for a bash,
Sykes, the mother of two children with her partner, chuckles, “With kids?
That would be dangerous to have a drum set around. They would drive
me nuts with that – the same way I drove my parents nuts.”
But music would not become Sykes’ calling. In fact, like many teens, she
was fairly rudderless after high school. “I knew that I had to go to college,”
says Sykes, who attended Hampton University in Virginia. “But I had no idea
what I wanted to do or wanted to be. My plan was to be a college graduate,
really! So I just picked marketing and got a B.S. in that.” When I joke that
“b.s.” is a rather appropriate term for most marketing, Sykes chuckles but
notes that the degree did get her a job with the National Security Agency as
a contracting specialist. “That was as close to marketing
as you can get for the government, I guess,” Sykes
says. “And I bought stuff.”
Since we were chatting just days after news
broke that former NSA contractor Edward
Snowden had leaked classified documents
and was shuttling through international
airports looking for asylum in places
like Russia or Ecuador, I couldn’t resist
asking Sykes what she thought
about the whole government leaks
issue. “I think the NSA does a great
job,” she replies. “They’re a good
group of people keeping our
nation safe. And I think Snowden
is a criminal. He should be tried
for treason. `Cause when you
sign the agreement, it says you’re
going to protect our information.
He broke that.”
She’s black, a lesbian
and a breast cancer
survivor.
“I can’t be the poster
child for everything!”
If it seems surprising that a black lesbian woman would take such a
pro-government stance, keep in mind that Sykes will speak her mind,
whatever political side that happens to be on. In 2009, she became
the first black woman, as well as the first openly gay person, to be the
featured entertainer at the annual White House Correspondents’ dinner –
an occasion she used to lambaste right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh.
Although that appearance caused some controversy, it was nothing
compared to the worst – and creepiest – gig of Sykes’ career. “I was at
a club in New Jersey,” she recalls, “doing a little one-nighter. It was me
and two other comics. We get there, and the place is just really seedy.
And I remember this guy; he bent over and a gun fell out. The gun was
just spinning around in the middle of the floor. And the scary thing of it
was, that everyone checked to see if it was their gun! (mimics) `You have
yours?’ Oh, is that your gun?’ `Yeah, it was my gun.’ And I was thinking,
`Okay, everyone here has a gun but me.’ So I did a really quick set and
got out of there. Maybe five minutes, and I was out.”
Hell-gigs are par for the course for comedians paying their dues,
although Sykes’ very first attempt at stand-up comedy – a talent show
sponsored by a local radio station – went really well. She figured, “Okay,
this is cool. I have a bunch of strangers laughing, and it feels great. I
by David Lefkowitz
wanna keep doing this.” Of course, ignorance can be a kind of blessing.
Sykes’ second gig was at a comedy club, and suddenly, there was more
pressure and an understanding that the long haul demands more than
a few good jokes and beginner’s luck. “It was my first time ever going
into a comedy club,” says Sykes. “You get up, and there’s a lot of waiting
around to get onstage. And I watched a lot of comics going before me and
just bomb. So fear sets in, and you think, `Oh boy, this could go horribly
wrong.’ So I wasn’t as loose the second time. And even the third or several
times after that. It wasn’t like the first time; it took time. It took a little
while for me to go, `Oh, I see how this goes.’ But I knew I wanted to do it
because I didn’t stop. I just kept going on.”
Luckily, Sykes had a mentor or two to guide her out of the pitfalls and
into professional work. The emcee of the radio station contest, Andy
Evans, “showed me where the comedy clubs were and worked with me
as far as material. He was my first coach.” Soon, Sykes was writing for
The Chris Rock Show, which was where “everything started for me,” the
comedienne told Las Vegas Weekly. “I learned a lot from Chris and HBO.”
For Sykes, the most important lesson – and the dividing line between
comedians who killed and those who got killed – is gaining confidence.
“Of course, you have to have the material,” she allows, “but you have to
be confident and not just rely on the material. And you have to be into it.
You have to be likeable and make the audience feel comfortable so that
they will laugh.”
Asked which performers influenced her work and desire to be a standup, Sykes, 49, cites television of the 1960s-70s as a comedy classroom.
“Growing up, we watched all the variety shows; there were so many
of them. We used to watch the Smothers Brothers all the time. I loved
watching Sanford and Son, All in the Family – pretty much anything
Norman Lear did. There was Moms Mabley, Flip Wilson, Bill Cosby. And as
soon as I got older, of course, Richard Pryor and George Carlin.”
That said, Sykes avoids watching current comics, simply because she
doesn’t want to be thrown off her game. “When I’m out working,” she
admits, “I just don’t want to hear another voice in my head.” Still, Sykes
recently produced and hosted a comedy showcase of female comedians
for the Oprah Winfrey Network. “I had to go through all these tapes and
pick the comics that I wanted to be on the show,” Sykes says. “I really
enjoyed the process, and the girls were all really funny. So I guess, when
it’s work, and it’s something I’m producing, yeah, I can watch a lot of
comics. But other than that, I’m not doing it.”
SYKES IN SNIPPETS
Favorite Books as a Child: I read pretty much
everything by Octavia Butler.
Recent Book Read: Tracy Kidder’s Mountains Beyond
Mountains.
Songs Now on your iPod: I love that Robin Thicke
song, “Blurred Lines.” And I always listen to Bob Marley
– especially the Legend album.
Favorite Snack: I love salt-and-vinegar anything.
Potato chips.
Favorite Pastime: I love to bowl.
Gym Routine: I don’t go to the gym. I have a treadmill
and elliptical in my house that I’ll use maybe two or
three times a week. But I love to walk my dogs, Riley
and Simon.
Favorite Comedy Routine of Yours: I used to love
doing that bit, “Drink Man,” although I haven’t done it in
a long time.
What Sykes will do is make sure her material stays fresh by constantly
adding to it or changing it. “I’ll think of something I think is funny,” says
the comedienne of her process, “and I’ll make myself a little note – either
on my phone, or I’ll write it down on a piece of paper. (Now it’s more by
phone, because I’d be losing the piece of paper!) But the next time I’m
about to do a show, I go through my little notes and just try it out. I’m
always trying out new material. The best part is when I’m the middle
of a show, and something just hits me. I build on that piece or think of
something onstage, and I do it right there.”
Spontaneity has also been a mark of Sykes’ personal life. Famously, she
came out as a gay woman at a Pride rally. “That was after the passage of
Proposition 8 in California,” recall Sykes. “And from then on, it was also
in my comedy. I mean, I was probably talking about it in my comedy
beforehand, but people weren’t really catching on.” Asked if she realized
she was gay during her seven-year marriage to record producer Dave
Hall, Sykes said, “No, I was a married woman. I mean, I knew, probably,
as a kid that I was gay. But that’s not how you’re supposed to live. So you
just push all that aside and live how society says you’re supposed to live.
So I did that. I wanted to fit into it, so that’s who I was. It wasn’t until
after that, that I said, `Okay, why aren’t my relationships working? What’s
going on?’ And then it was like, `Okay, I know. I know what’s going on.’”
What’s been going on with Sykes in recent times is more film roles (this
summer’s The Hot Flashes), tons of talk-show appearances on everything
from Ellen to The Tonight Show, and, of course, stand-up gigs across
the country (she’ll be at Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center
on October 5th). Health-wise, she’s doing fine following her double
mastectomy in 2011. Since breast cancer ran in her mother’s side of
the family, Sykes chose to be proactive. As for sharing the news with
the public, Sykes joked with Ellen Degeneres at the time, “I don’t know,
should I talk about it or what? How many things could I have? I’m black,
then lesbian... I can’t be the poster child for everything!”
Though the big 5-0 looms for her in March, Sykes says she’s not obsessing
about age. “I’m way behind on trying to plan a party or celebration for the
50th, but that’s pretty much what I’ve been thinking about, not the age
itself. What do I wanna do? How am I going to celebrate?” No doubt, as
she always does, she’ll think of something. X

Breast Cancer Awareness News
Blood pressure drug may raise breast cancer risk
W
tible portion is now being treated.
Because radiation only travels about a centimeter, this new procedure will
limit the amount of damage the treatment inflicts on healthy tissue. In the
new procedure, probes are used to help deliver the radiation directly into the
patient’s incision site. Instead of treating the entire breast, the radiation is targeted at the area where the tumor was located prior to being removed.
Typically, patients would receive monthly chemotherapy for a year after surgery, followed by daily radiation treatments for three to five weeks. The intraoperative treatment, which takes about two and a half hours, cuts out radiation treatments for many patients, and recovery time is faster. Many patients
are discharged the same day as the surgery. Chemotherapy treatment depends
on the size and type of tumor.
Aesthetically, the results leave little to no burning or scaring. Because this treatment requires one dose of radiation at one time, it is a huge improvement over
the inconvenience of repeated trips to the hospital for standard radiation therapy.
omen taking a type of blood pressure drug for more than a decade may raise
their breast-cancer risk, a study found. This is the first potential link between
long-term use of the popular medicines, also called calcium channel blockers,
(like Pfizer’s Norvasc) which may more than double the risk for breast cancer.
The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, is
the first time these drugs, which include verapamil, gallopamil, and fendiline,
have been associated to increasing women’s risk for breast cancer, but the
researchers stressed that the finding needs to be confirmed by other studies
before any action is taken to avoid these drugs. The study shows a link, but
does not prove a relationship between the drugs and breast cancer.
Medications for treating high blood pressure, called antihypertensives, are
the most commonly prescribed drugs in the United States with an estimated
678 million prescriptions filled in 2010, including 98 million prescriptions for
calcium-channel blockers.
In the study, more than 1,900 Seattle-area women diagnosed with
breast cancer were studied to determine which medications they

If you have a family history of breast cancer,
you are likely to develop breast cancer too.
The Truth
While women who have a family history of
breast cancer are in a higher risk group, most
women who have breast cancer have no
family history. Statistically only about 10%
of individuals diagnosed with breast cancer
have a family history of this disease.
If you have a first degree relative with
breast cancer: If you have a mother,
daughter, or sister who developed breast
cancer below the age of 50, you should
consider some form of regular diagnostic
breast imaging starting 10 years before the
age of your relative’s diagnosis.
If you have a second degree relative with
breast cancer: If you have had a grandmother or aunt who was diagnosed with
breast cancer, your risk increases slightly,
but it is not in the same risk category as
those who have a first degree relative with
breast cancer.
If you have multiple generations diagnosed with breast cancer on the same
side of the family, or if there are several
individuals who are first degree relatives
to one another, or several family members
diagnosed under age 50, the probability
increases that there is a breast cancer gene
contributing to the cause of this familial
history.

Intraoperative radiation therapy also has fewer side effects than traditional radiation therapy including redness, rashes, irritation, fatigue, swelling, tissue stiffness,
and scarring.
Since this procedure is still being studied, doctors are only using it for patients with
early stage breast cancer who are age 60 or older. The cancerous growths have to be
less than two centimeters and they must be hormone receptor positive. However, experts expect that as more studies are conducted, over time, the minimum age will drop.
Breast-Feeding May Reduce Breast Cancer Risk
A new study by the Journal of Clinical Nursing has discovered that breast-feeding
for six months or longer may delay or reduce the risk of breast cancer. New research
has found that the act may delay the start of cancer by 10 years, as long as women
breast-feed for more than six months and do not smoke. The study was carried out by
a group of researchers from the University of Granada in Spain, to assess the relationship between breast cancer and breast-feeding.
The study involved 504 female breast cancer patients between the ages of 19 and
91 diagnosed with breast cancer and being treated in San Cecilio University Hospital
in Granada. The researchers discovered that non-smoking women who breast-fed
their child for six months or longer were not diagnosed until, approximately, age 68.
Whereas both non-smokers and women who either did not breast-feed or did so for
less than six months,were diagnosed at an average of age 58.
Despite patient’s family history of cancer, female non-smokers saw a lower breast
cancer risk if they breast-fed, while smokers saw no benefit. While experts have no
concrete evidence explaining why breast-feeding helps lower breast cancer risk, they
believe, the most probable reasons is the hormonal changes that take place during
pregnancy and lactation.
Age of breast cancer diagnosis, length time of breast feeding, family history of cancer, obesity, alcohol consumption, and smoking habits, were all included in the analysis of the patients.
The authors of the study added the incidence of this disease could be reduced from
6.3% to 2.7% if women were able to breast-feed their children for more than six
months. They added that the move away from breast-feeding is a big factor in the
increase in breast cancer cases.
Research suggests that breast-feeding has only a slight effect on
breast cancer risk and that effect is only among women who
have breast-fed for a long time. Breast-feeding seems to
be more protective against the most aggressive types of
breast cancer, including tumors in women with mutations in the BRCA1 gene, basal-like cancers, hormone-receptor negative, and possibly triple
negative tumors.
The findings confirm the results of previous studies on
the topic. Both breast-feeding and pregnancy are
thought to help protect
women against breast
cancer by reducing estrogen levels.
While it is not
clear just how much
breast-feeding may
impact cancer risk,
it has many other
health advantages
for mothers and babies. O

Island Memories

Memories of Those Who Left Long Island and Some Who Returned
J
ust like Dorothy discovered in the Wizard of Oz, there’s no place like home,
or in this case, no place like Long Island to grow up. For those fortunate
enough to have been raised here, Long Island offered young women an
idyllic world. It allowed them a safe, uncomplicated place to pursue an education, hang out with friends and prepare for their futures. Many young
women grew up on Long Island, went off to college, but returned to raise
a family. Others left and never came back. Still, others left and did return
to the place “where everyone knows your name.”
Establishments like Nunley’s Amusement Park in Baldwin; Lollipop Farm
Jones Beach
in Syosset and the Oceanside Kiddieland were just a few of the places that
brought back sweet memories. Almost everyone spoke of the Jericho Cider
Mill and Eisenhower Park with great affection. Roosevelt Field,

for graduate school. After that, the warm winds of Florida beckoned and
Kohn settled in Lake Worth. What she liked about Glen Cove was the
small town atmosphere and diversity, something she didn’t come to appreciate until she was older. “There were five elementary schools, but only
one junior high and one high school, so you pretty much knew everyone in Glen Cove before you graduated,” she said. Her favorite memories
were Pryibil Beach and Morgan Park for July 4th celebrations and school
outings. “I remember going to the Old Brookville Diner with friends and
scouring the Roosevelt Fields flea market.” When asked if she still had
family in the area, she replied no. “My parents and brother followed
me here.” Kohn, who owns a medical fitness company, misses the
change of seasons and the green scenery. She also misses the strong
work ethic up North. “In New York, people have careers. In Florida,
they have jobs.”
“Like most girls in Roslyn, I led kind of a charmed life,” said Carole
Wagner Grauer, a Certified Financial Planner, who has lived in Denver for 35 years. “It was easy. We had everything we ever wanted or
needed and it was the only life we knew. I hung out with friends at
West End Beach and Sands Point.” Carole feels people are different
in New York. “Once you make a friend in New York, you have that
friend for life. In Denver, people are friendly, but it’s hard to get to
know them. That’s what I miss.”
Another Colorado transplant is Ellen Hinton, who grew up in Jericho and now lives in Loveland, Colorado. She felt that Jericho was
“tight knit.” “Everyone looked out for each other. We were able to
play after dark and not worry about anything. Our neighbors watched
out for all of the neighborhood kids and we felt safe.” Ellen misses
being able to go fishing off the piers or on the party boats. She admits
that nothing compares to living on Long Island. “The community here
is not as friendly. People are nice, but the safe feeling you’d get in
Jericho isn’t the same here. I’d go back to Jericho in a heartbeat.”
Pamela Lopez has fond memories of growing up in Jericho, but made
her home in Los Angeles, where she freelances as an associate TV director.
Her experiences with the Oyster Bay Teen Repertoire Theater and upstate
drama camp fueled her desire to be in the entertainment business. She also
remembers enjoying cruising in her dad’s boat on the Long Island Sound
and square dancing in Cantiague Park. Over the years, family brought her
back to Jericho. One of the things Pamela liked best about living on Long
Island was being just a train ride away to New York City. Pamela said she
misses the fall in Long Island as well as New York’s pace and sophistication.
“I’ve never stopped missing New York,” Pamela said.
Stacey Goldsmith, also a Jericho native, relocated to Highland Park,
Illinois in 2003 where her husband got a job. She loved growing up in Jericho because it was so small and welcoming. She recalls hanging out with
friends at Tobay Beach and going into the city with her family for dinner
and a Broadway show. Stacey feels that children on Long Island are given
a lot more independence. “There,” she says, “kids go off to sleep-a-way
camp at 3rd and 4th grade for the whole summer. If you didn’t go, there
was no one else home.” Stacey said that if her and her husband, from Dix
Hills, hadn’t come to Chicago, they would have chosen to raise their family
on Long Island.

SPOTLIGHT
Rita Wilson
Rita Wilson will take us on a musical journey with a
Gala concert performance that will be followed by a
glamorous Hollywood-like Party. Although Wilson
is well-known as an actress and a film producer, her
early show biz ambitions were actually musical. Her
debut album, AM/FM, is an intimate and beautifully
sung collection of classics from the ‘60s and ‘70s that
together make up the soundtrack to her life. And as
The Huffington Post declares of her elegant renditions
of songs, “Rita Wilson’s performance on this debut CD
is tasteful, classy, and reverent -- a songwriter’s dream.”
When: Saturday, November 9
Where: Landmark on Main Street, 232 Main St., Port
Washington
Tickets: Gala tickets begin at $300. Concert-only
tickets are available in the balcony and are $65.

DESIGN: FRAVER
With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David
Sedaris is one of America’s pre-eminent humor
writers. He will read from his work in an evening that
promises to be both hilarious and original on Sunday,
October 20 at 7 pm.
In his new book of essays, Let’s Explore Diabetes with
Owls, the humorist turns a wry eye on his adopted
home in rural England, his childhood, and the
annoying people he comes across in airport lounges.
With readings made up of well-worn material,
works-in-progress, and even diary entries, every
public reading by Mr. Sedaris is an event.
