Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To assist women undergoing treatment for breast and or gynecological cancers throughout their treatment, by providing support and services. Support includes a one on one volunteeer to work with the patient to help them through their journey. Services to include free transportation to medical appointments, housecleaning, prepared food, financial assistance and more. We also provide educational and advocacy programs including scholarships. We promote the precautionary principle, prevention is the cure, encouraging and educating about a healthy lifestyle.

The Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition (BBCC) has a small staff dedicated to supplying support and services for our clients. We are a grassroots volunteer based organization using volunteers whenever possible. We reach out to the community for outreach, have an affiliation with local hospitals and medical personnel including doctors, surgeons and social workers.

We currently have 2 full time employees and one part time employee. We currently have 3 Advisory Board Members, including the Director of Breast Services at Good Samaritan Hospital, a gynecological cancer specialist and an oncologist. Our board also includes several professionals including an attorney, educators and a CPA. We have an extensive list of volunteers. We own (through a grant from the Town of Babylon) a van to provide transportation services to our clients. We also have a beautiful Vision of Hope Garden to provide comfort and solice for the community. We offer engraved bricks and ribbons for the community to provide a place to honor their friends and loved ones. We supply 2 local hospitals with over 200 of our Gift of Health and Inspiration bags, a tote bag filled with educational and comfort items for the pre-surgical cancer patient. We provide about 1,000 rides to our clients, utilizing our van and volunteers using their own vehicles to ensure our clients are able to complete their treatments in a safe, clean and comfortable vehicle.

We have been able to meet and/or exceed our goals annually, even through the COVID 19 pandemic, through the generosity of the community, governments grants and the directorship of our board members and our award winning staff. Going forward we hope to continue our programs with an emphasis on providing more assistance for the underserved in the community.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
