Breast Cancer Awareness Month: October 2017
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of a disease that affects 1 in every 8 women in the United States. All over the country, companies like Antis Roofing & Waterproofing are showing their support for those affected by the disease and survivors of the disease, as well as to raise awareness of breast cancer risks, the value of screening and early detection, and treatment options available to women and men who are diagnosed with one of the many forms of breast cancer.
"One in eight women will be diagnosed each year, and even men can be affected by breast cancer, so I am fortunate enough to work for a company that takes time away from profit to the company to help to spread awareness and make a difference in the community." – Aaron Antis, Director of Sales
Antis Roofing & Waterproofing started honoring the month with good friends at Seabreeze Property Management Company, Inc. by visiting their offices in our festive pink hats! The former CEO of Seabreeze, Lisa Dale, is a breast cancer survivor, and in her honor we donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a cause Lisa is active with. Our suite at the Honda Center will be highlighting the Susan G. Komen Foundation all month, donating suite tickets for the foundation’s staff, volunteers and other stakeholders. The Susan G. Komen Foundation, founded in 1982, has transformed how the world treats and talks about breast cancer and has helped turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.
Antis Roofing & Waterproofing employees support Breast Cancer Awareness month by sporting pink, which has long been the official color of the movement, across the company for the entire month of October! The Antis sales and marketing teams will be wearing pink while visiting customers and giving away our pink hats, and our techs will be in the field in pink hats all month to show their support.
"Breast Cancer has touched each and every one of us in some way, so it’s amazing to work for a company that supports the fight against this devastating disease and impacts the lives of those around us." – Cori Vernam, Marketing Manager
Together, we can fight a disease that has become the leading cause of cancer death among women ages 20-39 in the US.
