On Saturday, October 17, 2020, Mayor Alberto G. Santos and Councilmembers Albino Cardoso, Marytrine De Castro and Peter Santana joined Emma Quintana, members of Mujeres Valientes (Brave Women) and Minette’s Angels Foundation for the annual Breast Cancer Awareness Tie a Pink Ribbon event in front of Kearny Town Hall. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the pink ribbons are meant to send the message that “Mammograms Save Lives.” Mujeres Valientes (Brave Women) is a support group, founded 16 years ago by Kearny resident Emma Quintana, for women and families battling breast cancer. Over the years, the members of this organization have supported each other and increased public awareness about the importance of early detection. The kick-off event in the Town of Kearny is co-sponsored by Mujeres Valientes and Minette’s Angels Foundation.
