In 2018, an estimated 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 63,410 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer. Also, about 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, and it is estimated that 40,920 women will die from breast cancer this year.
If these statistics shock you, you aren’t alone! That is why each year we team together to raise awareness and give back to those who are fighting the battle.
Amare teamed with Capital Healthcare Services to host our 4th annual Pink Out Day for Breast Cancer Awareness on Friday, October 26th. Our employees had a great time getting “pinked up” from head to toe for a great cause! This year, the Core Values Team donated $5 for each employee who dressed up to Look Good Feel Better, a nonprofit dedicated to improving the quality of life and self-esteem of people undergoing cancer treatment!
With the participation we received, plus a matching donation, we were able to raise $400! It’s such a simple way to do some good for those in need, and we hope that we inspire other individuals, groups, and organizations to continue to pay it forward!
We’d like to thank everyone who participated this year! We’re already gearing up for Pink Out Day 2019!
