As the West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition for Long Island, Inc. (WIBCC) enters its 32nd year serving the breast cancer community, we are pleased to welcome newly elected President, Donna Marano.
After 16 devoted years as President, Margaret Campise made the decision to not step down but to just step aside and continue as a member on the Board of Directors.
Donna is a highly accomplished professional with more than 30 years of experience in the corporate world and has been actively involved in her community. She brings a unique blend of technical expertise and leadership skills to the role of president and champion for women and men dealing with the diagnosis of breast cancer.
A 15-year breast cancer survivor herself, Donna understands the emotional strength it takes to get through this difficult time in one’s life. She attributes that to being surrounded by her husband, friends, and family when she had to fight the fight. She values and appreciates her new life after cancer and continues to attend support groups to “be there” for newly diagnosed women starting their journey and to forge relationships and share experiences with other survivors.
Donna’s role as President of the WIBCC highlights her passion and commitment to making a difference in the lives of others. In addition to community outreach and fundraising efforts, the organization’s “Lend a Helping Hand” program provides many services to support the
needs of those undergoing breast cancer treatment, including transportation to and from treatment, meals, wigs, protheses, medical co-payments and housecleaning.
A grass roots organization, WIBCC is accredited as a tax deductible 501c3 charity with a Board of Directors comprised solely of dedicated volunteers. Donna is proud of the work it does to making a meaningful impact in the lives it serves and is at the forefront to continue this effort, leading the way with passion and commitment!
