  • Emergency BC medication & surgical dressings
  • Lymphedema compression garments
  • Housecleaning services, stress-reduction (massage, yoga, etc)

We have helped a numerous amount of Long Island women and their families to cope with the challenges that breast cancer brings. One of the first problems people face is an uncertain test from a doctor. Our office has done a wonderful job helping people to handle the situation and become proactive.
Letter from one of our fabulous students last year, Erin Morrisroe!
Dear Karen and Melanie,
Thank you so much for allowing me to work on your team this year! I learned more than I had even hoped and imagined! You are such inspiring women and the dedication and passion you have for HBCAC is beyond impressive. Without you I would not be where I am today. Thank you for being such a great influence!
