Islip Town Board Honors Islip Breast Cancer Coalition

Islip, NY - Supervisor Angie Carpenter and the members of the Islip Town Board recently honored the Islip Breast Cancer Coalition (IBCC) in recognition of their 20 years of service to the Islip community. The IBCC has helped support and comfort hundreds of victims of breast cancer, and has provided aid to their families as well. The organization has steadily grown, and under the leadership of its current board members, the IBCC has been able to make more of an impact than ever before.

“Thanks to the efforts of this organization, hundreds of residents over the past 20 years have benefited from an improved quality of life during their struggles with cancer,” said Supervisor Angie Carpenter.
