Breast Cancer Awareness
Did you know that breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women? 1 in 8 women or about 12% will develop breast cancer during the course of their lifetime. In 2018, almost 270,000 new cases of breast cancer were diagnosed, with an estimated 41,000 women who would lose their lives due to breast cancer.
Each year in the month of October, Newberry Electric Cooperative does a project to promote Breast Cancer Awareness. Our linemen even wear pink hard hats throughout the month.
This year, we are asking you to help us provide funding for breast cancer research. All donations will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This organization guarantees that 91 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to breast cancer research.
We're asking you to please partner with us and help find a cure for this deadly disease.
Since BCRF is a 501 (c) (3) organization, please consider giving a tax deductible donation today at https://give.bcrf.org/newberryelectriccoop
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
