Review for WEST ISLIP BREAST CANCER COALITION FOR LONG ISLAND INC, W Islip, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became involved with this wonderful group after I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. They were there to support me and provide direction and help answer questions. I felt I needed to give back and be helpful to anyone else who was going through what I went through. This volunteer group works so hard to raise funds to use to help people with our Lend a Helping Hand program. Our concern is to help our neighbors right here and try to ease any issues they are going through. We are here for you!!

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?

Definitely

How much of an impact do you think this organization has?

Life-changing

Will you tell others about this organization?

Definitely

How did you learn about this organization?

I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and did not know where to turn. I was scared and ignorant and they were there to comfort and help me.

What is this organization's top short-term priority?

Raise money to purchase needed items for women in chemo who need wigs, camisoles, housekeeping, transportation and food because they cannot do it at this time.

What is its top priority in the long run?

To have enough funds to help every person in need in our neighborhood and the surrounding areas.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2011

Role:  Board Member & I walked the LI2Day Walk to raise money for Long Island recipients. I worked the Clam Shucking Fundraiser in August on Fire Island. Worked information tables at various functions.
