October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and an ideal time to learn more about this disease and the effect it has on the community. By showing your support to breast cancer charities and learning more about breast cancer, you can lend a hand to the community. Here is some information about breast cancer and how Total Fire Protection is making a difference with its breast cancer fundraising initiative.
Breast Cancer Awareness
Statistics show that 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. And in 2023, it’s estimated that 297,790 women and 2,800 men will receive a diagnosis of invasive breast cancer. However, there is hope with regard to breast cancer. If this type of cancer is caught in the earliest stages and it’s localized, there’s a five-year relative survival rate of 99%. With early detection and treatment, people can engage in a good fight against breast cancer. Currently, there are more than 3.8 million breast cancer survivors within the U.S.
Fortunately, there are many organizations, businesses, and individuals who are lending a hand to raise awareness about breast cancer and offer fundraising access to offer funds for research, treatment, and support. Total Fire Protection is one of these businesses.
Extinguishing Breast Cancer
Total Fire Protection lends support in the fight against breast cancer with its Extinguishing Breast Cancer initiative. The company is selling fire extinguishers with pink tamper seals on top. A portion of the proceeds of all fire extinguishers sold with this pink tamper seal will go directly to the American Cancer Society as part of the company’s Extinguishing Breast Cancer campaign. The proceeds will help to fund breast cancer research which helps to find more treatment options for those diagnosed with breast cancer.
Another way that Total Fire Protection helps to raise awareness about breast cancer is to participate in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. The TFP team, along with family, friends, and partners, participates in this walk every year in Central Park and is an Official Mile Marker Sponsor.
