Breast Cancer Awareness
In October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we made a commitment to make a monetary donation to Susan G. Komen San Diego for each new Sponsor. We would like to THANK those that helped kick off this program with new sponsorships in October:
- Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine
- Best Western Black Rock Inn
- Cantor & Burger
- Coastal Connections, Inc.
- College Hunks Hauling Junk
- Poison Ivy Control of Missouri
- Raleigh Gold
- Vallejo Team Superstores
Together, because of these Sponsors we have contributed to programs that provide access to breast health, breast care services to low-income and underinsured women, research grants and support services. This quest to help fight and cure breast cancer is near and dear to our hearts. We are proud to say that we pledge to continue making donations for each new sponsor throughout the year.
Each and every one of us has been somehow, either directly or indirectly, impacted by breast cancer.
- In the U.S., 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
- Since, 1990, early detection and treatment have resulted in a significant decline in breast cancer mortality in America.
- Today, there are more than 3 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S.
It is with these statistics in mind and to honor those near and dear to us that have courageously fought this battle that we at Adopt-A-Highway Litter Removal Service of America, Inc. have decided to make a monetary donation to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for every sponsorship sign sold starting in October.
Susan G. Komen’s mission is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering others, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.”
Susan G. Komen’s mission is achieved through the funding of research, education, screening and treatment programs throughout the world.
Collective efforts can make a huge impact; whether it be cleaner highways or fighting breast cancer, you can make a difference. Consider sponsoring a highway today to help fund a cure for breast cancer.
