The Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition does such wonderful and meaningful services for women who are probably going through the hardest time period in their life. From my initial diagnosis they were there from day one with a goody bag explaining how they could help me with services and emotional support from all their volunteers who mostly are breast cancer survivors themselves. From helping with meals, to transportation to helping with housecleaning they were always available. In my particular case at the end of my reconstruction my insurance changed and my new policy wouldn't allow my Doctor to finish his reconstruction with a tattoo that they actually stepped up and paid for my nipples to be Tattooed! Amazing !!!!! They are just an incredible organization !

It almost goes without saying that the love and compassion that comes from BBCC far surpassed my expectations. The support I received during my illness from the volunteers helped me get through a time in my life that changed me forever and restored my faith in humanity through their kindness and generosity. Keeping their mission alive is important and necessary for our community.

A friend referred me to BBCC after hearing how they helped another friend of hers going through breast cancer also. I didn't call right away because I was overwhelmed but when I did I spoke with the director, Tess, who took the time to reassure me of their local support and assistance. She personally delivered a gift bag of donated items that would help me with my surgery, treatments, and recovery. One of them was an informative book that was so valuable to me!! I wish I had called earlier as it was a such a needed resource. I was also assigned a volunteer (who had been through bc) and was able to speak to her on a regular basis about my treatments and recovery process. She was so kind and generous with her time and it was reassuring to know I could talk to someone locally as opposed to an 800# or call center. BBCC also donated other services and meals to my family through their Lend a Helping Hand program. It was so appreciated and helped relieve some of the stress we were all going through. I fully support this organization and the wonderful staff who are always friendly and willing to help their clients in any way they can (transportation, referrals, resources, etc.). I am so thankful for them. Terry still continues to keep me informed of their local activities and programs. and I continue to recommend them to anyone going through breast cancer as well as others who may be able to support their efforts.

The BBCC is a blessing!! They have helped me so much within my journey. They not only offer support for breast cancer patients, but other gynecological cancers like ovarian cancer. I honestly don't know how I would have done it without there generosity and support. Before people both inside and out!! Love you guys.

I don't know what I would have done without them. I got food from them when I was too dick to cook for my family. They sent people to clean my house during all the months I had chemo. They paid bills so I didn't fall too behind being out of work. They are generous and kind. My family and I are forever grateful

BBCC goes above and beyond.... A volunteer steps up and is assigned to every client and walks them through their journey. The volunteer is there for them every step of the way if the client wants them there. They paid some quite a bit of my financial needs, sent prepared delicious homemade food for the holidays and prepared food when I was going through treatments. House cleaning service was also supplied to me when I couldn't do it myself. My volunteer is now a life long friend and pink sister. I have never met such wonderful and caring people in my life........

The Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition is wonderful. Just speaking with them on the phone was always calming and reassuring. They helped me with meals for my family, contributing toward my wig, and the housecleaning (which I had to say was my favorite thing!) The gentleman that came to clean the house was just that, a gentleman. He was kind and thoughtful and did a great job! I am very grateful for everything they did for me to get thru this awful time in my life. When I hear someone going thru this, I always tell them about the BBCC. They helped me tremendously!
