Milford Bridge, Breast Cancer Awareness Day
Online PR News – 27-May-2014 – Milford, NJ – According to the American Cancer Society, about 1 in 8 women in the US will develop breast cancer during their lifetime. For Jon Letko, owner and CEO of US Healthcare Supply, this is a health issue that hits very close to home. After a long and painful battle with breast cancer, Letko lost his mother at a very young age to this devastating disease. Letko has since made it a goal to help the cause and has joined the fight against breast cancer. His brothers, Edward Letko and James Letko, also share his passion and dedication to the cause, and they have teamed up together to raise money and awareness for the breast cancer fight.
US Healthcare Supply has participated in several fundraisers over the past 3 years to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research. The fundraisers have included many different activities to get employees, as well as other local businesses in Milford, NJ, involved and engaged. US Healthcare Supply employees and local clerks have held raffles and tricky trays in order to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research.
Following each fundraiser, US Healthcare Supply has matched the amounts raised, which has resulted in a doubling of the amount being donated. Since 2011, the team at US Healthcare Supply has raised over $9,500 for breast cancer research. All proceeds were donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, www.bcrf.org, an organization dedicated to cancer research and awareness programs. This is an organization Jon Letko is proud to contribute to annually, as they spend 91 cents of every dollar raised on research and public awareness.
US Healthcare Supply will continue their fundraising efforts in 2014. Jon Letko and his team will strive to raise more money and awareness this year for breast cancer research.
