DIX HILLS - A breast cancer survivor from Long Island is one step closer to her goal of getting what she calls life-saving legislation enacted. Joanne Pushkin has pushed hard for a bill that would have doctors notify women who get mammographies if they have a condition known as dense breasts. The condition essentially whites out tissue on an X-ray, making growths and abnormalities harder to spot. Pushkin had the condition and didn't know that she needed to get further screenings. She was later diagnosed with cancer, and has undergone seven surgeries, eight rounds of chemotherapy and 30 rounds of radiation. The breast density bill was passed unanimously by the state Legislature last month. It is now under review by Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office. A similar law is in place in Connecticut, and after it was passed, the find rate for cancers doubled, officials say.
