Join AdvantageTec in donating and helping women with breast cancer and look for our ad in Automotive News in October.
In the United States and around the world, October is the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During this annual international health campaign, many breast cancer organizations arrange local charities to raise funds for research of breast cancer, but also to increase awareness to its cause, as well as prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure.
The pink ribbon
Additionally, many organizations offer information and financial support for people affected by this disease. BCAM campaigns first started back in 1985 when American Cancer Society partnered up with Imperial Chemical Industries – pharmaceutical division which produces several anti-breast cancer drugs. From the very start, BCAM promoted mammography as the most efficient weapon in the fight against breast cancer.
The pink ribbon – the symbol of BCAM – was established in 1993 by Evelyn Lauder, founder of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (although this was not the first time the ribbon was used to symbolize breast cancer).
During this month, many events around the world are organized to raise awareness about breast cancer, including runs, walks, and even to attach the pink ribbon to their logos and other brand marks.
Join the fight against breast cancer
Not only women get affected by breast cancer, but men as well. During their medical leave, bills tend to pile up, and many breast-cancer affected families also suffer. Mortgage, rent, car lease, credits – these all need to be paid, and luckily some organizations have decided to assist patients in paying the bills during their medical leave.
We would like to invite you to join the fight against breast cancer and financially support those brave women and men during their recovery. There are many funds in the US and around the globe which you can donate to, such as the Pink Fund, the Breast Cancer Charities of America, Cancer Care, and much more.
Because we care and believe we can help.
