Once again, Long Island Plastic Surgical Group partnered with Adelphi Breast Cancer Hotline, Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition, and Manhasset Women’s Coalition Against Breast Cancer to adopt three families in need. The Adopt a Family program focuses on helping members of the Garden City, Babylon, and East Hills communities who are coping with breast cancer and financial hardship. After being assigned three families, we received a “Wish List” including information about each family, their genders, ages, clothing sizes, and holiday wishes.
Thanks to many generous donations from our physicians, staff, and patients, all three families received an abundance of holiday gifts. In addition to donating $1,640 in gift cards, LIPSG employees donated blankets, pajamas, socks, sweat pants, toys, winter coats, etc.
All gifts were personally delivered by a representative from each coalition the week before Christmas. It was our goal to provide these families with a fun-filled holiday season without the added pressure of purchasing food and gifts. We hope that for some of the families, this effort may have even provided the break needed to start the new year on a better foot.
We would like to thank our amazing doctors and wonderful staff and patients for contributing to the success of the Adopt A Family program. These donations/gifts helped to make three families very happy.
