Cancer knows no


It can affect
at any age


Yet, there is


as the frontiers
of medicine
are extended

every day

The Garden of Hope is a memorial to those who have died of cancer and to those who have survived the disease. Located on the north side of Sunrise Highway just west of Old Mill Road, the Garden of Hope consist of an assortment of flowers and other foliage.

Others that the garden pays tribute to include Marie Quinn, a former guidance counselor at Wantagh High School who died from the disease and Mary Ellen Farrell, a former teacher at the high school. Quinn is one of the founders of 1-in-9, the Long Island Breast Cancer Action Coalition.

The Long Island Planning Council (LIPC) is coordinating the Garden of Hope and would appreciate any donations of money, building supplies, foliage or good-old elbow grease. Please write or call for more information.
