The Zabbia Insurance Agency, a family owned insurance firm with offices serving communities throughout the greater Long Island region, is initiating a charity drive to raise funds in support of Terese McCarthy, a local wife and mother of two who is currently battling leukemia.

Not only does Terese look after her two daughters, she cares for her nephew, elderly father, and ill sister, all of whom live in her home. Since her recent leukemia diagnosis Terese has begun what will likely be a long and grueling chemotherapy campaign. The Zabbia charity drive is intended to raise funds that will ensure she is able to continue caring for her family for the duration of her fight with cancer.

“Terese is a strong and courageous woman and I have no doubt she’ll win her fight against cancer, but she will need help to ensure that her family is properly cared for while she recovers,” says Robert Zabbia, owner and manager of Zabbia Insurance Agency.

Zabbia and his team of professionals have created an online social media portfolio and initiated an email update bulletin to share Terese’s story and raise support from families, business owners, and community leaders all across Long Island. The Zabbia team will also be writing up a full page article to be featured in the next issue of “Our Hometown,” the firm’s monthly community webzine:

Zabbia Insurance Agency has recently joined the ranks of the national “Agents of Change” movement. As part of this program, Zabbia and his team will be selecting and working with a new Long Island area charity or non-profit every other month from here forward.

Readers interested in standing with Zabbia Insurance and assisting the McCarthy family during this charity event are asked to visit the firm’s website and make a personal donation from this page: Readers that want to review the growing list of non-profits and charitable causes supported by Zabbia Insurance Agency can bookmark the firm’s Community Causes page here:
