Today, all Danella companies are acknowledging those affected by breast cancer, as well as raising awareness of the need to be proactive with diagnosing breast cancer before it is life threatening. Throughout the company, employees are wearing pink as part of a continued effort to bring attention to this disease, which can affect one in eight women. Below are several photos of our employees taking part in raising awareness.
As the second most common cause of cancer deaths among women, early detection is an important factor in surviving this disease. To help our employees and their families with self-screening, reusable breast self-examination aids are being distributed throughout the company. Information sheets, including the warning signs, were also handed out to educate employees and their families.
When it comes to breast cancer, there are some important tips:
Remember, breast cancer is not a one gender disease, and can affect both men and women of any age—whether there is a family history or not! It is important to visit your doctor regularly and follow these tips, stay healthy, and reduce risk factors for cancer.
It is hard to find someone who has not been affected or knows someone who has been affected by breast cancer. We hope everyone takes advantage of these tools and information, sharing it with friends, family, and the community. We at Danella proudly support those individuals who have, had, or have passed from this horrible disease, as well as their love ones who have been with them every step of the way.
