Mission

The West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition for Long Island, Inc. (WIBCC) is a non-profit 501 (c)3, volunteer, grassroots organization founded in 1992. It is our mission to reduce the incidences and severity of breast cancer diagnoses, by raising awareness to possible means of prevention and early detection. It is also part of our mission, to provide support services, through our Lend A Helping Hand Program, for those who are diagnosed and undergoing treatment for breast and/or gynecological cancers. After being directly responsible for the first comprehensive cancer cluster survey in Suffolk County, which led to a multi-year, Long Island breast cancer study, mandated by Congress in 1993, WIBCC continues to support research and advocacy as it pertains to breast cancer eradication.
