For Darcy Doege, R.N., B.S.N., of the Levine Cancer Institute, finding cancer early in patients means hitting the road.
Darcy is the Program Coordinator for the Lung B.A.S.E.S. 4 Life Program for the Charlotte-based cancer center, which launched the first mobile lung screening unit in the U.S. in 2017. This innovative idea was built to increase the early detection of lung cancer for underserved populations across North and South Carolina, thanks to a grant from the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation
Education and screening program for the prevention of breast cancer
Gildan’s annual “Pink Tour” in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness held during the month of October is an initiative aimed at raising awareness of breast cancer at Gildan’s facilities in Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean Basin.
The Pink Tour fosters a culture of prevention and inspires breast cancer advocacy, honoring those affected by the disease. Resident Gildan doctors toured the facilities to lead presentations on the importance of prevention through early detection and intervention.
Mohawk Group and Durkan are committed to the fight against breast cancer and as a long-term partner of Susan G. Komen®, we are helping to make a difference through our corporate donation program, Specify for a Cure®. You can help too: When you specify eligible products within our program, we will make a donation on your behalf to Susan G. Komen.
Celebrating Symantec’s Volunteer of the Quarter Marcelo Oliveira
Symantec’s Volunteer of the Quarter initiative highlights and rewards those employees who dedicate their time and talents to those in need. We have a long and proud history of encouraging our employees to volunteer. While the driving force of our efforts is largely altruistic, there is even more to volunteering than giving back to our communities. Volunteering makes our company a better place to work, so employees are helping both Symantec and the organizations they volunteer for.
Have you ever knitted, crocheted or sewn a hat? How about hand-making more than 500 hats and then giving them to charity?
That’s exactly what the Humana Charity Crafters recently did, hand-making more than 500 hats, breast cancer pillows, blankets and stuffed animals to benefit cancer patients at Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center. The donation was in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October and Make a Difference Day on Oct. 27.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, our A&D Design Director Royce Epstein shares her experience with breast cancer – and how she keeps moving forward. Her insight and outlook are an inspiration.
Last September, I had the honor of addressing the opening crowd at the Komen Philadelphia 3-Day Walk. I looked at my fellow breast cancer survivors and their family members from the stage and spoke humbly from the heart with a quiver in my voice. In May, I led the Komen Philadelphia Survivor’s Parade with two friends and other survivors, all who have recently battled breast cancer.
Across the country, Mohawk Industries employees have been rallying to show support for Susan G. Komen with multi-campus #MohawkGoesPink events and volunteering in the multi-city Susan G. Komen 3-Day series.
