Moloney Family Funeral Homes Donates Funds to Fortunato Breast Health Center
November 28, 2012
Moloney Family Funeral homes today presented a check for more than $5,300 to the Fortunato Breast Health Center, the result of an effort in October to highlight Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Peter Moloney, Dan Moloney and the staff offered pink bracelets to the public in return for a donation. The bracelets brought in more than $2,500, which was matched by the Moloney brothers.
“We realized from the start that it was extremely important to us all that the funds raised would stay local and benefit those in our community,” said Peter Moloney, noting that breast cancer affects everyone in the community, directly or indirectly.
“We are very grateful and appreciative to our staff as well as those in the community who contributed to this important cause and helped us in raising the awareness of this terrible disease,” said Dan Moloney.
“We appreciate the efforts by the Moloney brothers and their staff to raise awareness of breast cancer in our community and their generous donation to our Center,” said Joseph Carrucciu, MD, Co-Medical Director of the Center.
Peter and Dan Moloney own and operate Moloney Family Funeral Homes with locations in Port Jefferson Station, Lake Ronkonkoma, Hauppauge, Holbrook, Bohemia and Central Islip.

This recognition is given only to those centers that have voluntarily committed to providing the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous review of their performance. The Center is one of only four on Long Island to have earned this prestigious distinction.
