Lend A Helping Hand Program

The LAAH Program is designed to assist breast cancer patients, as well as, patients with other women’s cancers and their families to cope up with major life challenges.

We provide assistance with daily needs such as, housekeeping, childcare, massage therapy, salon services, transportation to medical appointments and financial assistance procuring  wigs and prostheses. This program is offered to patients of breast cancer and other women’s cancers who reside within the township of islip. It is our goal that patients and their families have some relief from some daily pressures while recovering from surgery and/or undergoing chemotherapy/radiation.
