Elite MD to benefit Mommy and Me Cancer Foundation for October.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and while there are many superficial awareness campaigns, Elite MD commits to doing our part in encouraging people to seek out & support organizations that truly support breast health education, awareness and treatment. Elite MD is proud to support the work of Mommy and Me Cancer Foundation and the National Breast Cancer Coalition.
In 2018, it is estimated that 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among U.S. women and approximately 2,550 new cases among U.S. men. In addition to invasive cancers, 63,960 new cases of in situ breast cancer will be diagnosed among women in the U.S. in 2018.
A breast cancer diagnosis can destroy the financial health and well-being of the patient and their family. Founded in 2013, Mommy and Me Cancer Foundation worked hard with the help of our members and volunteers to support mothers with cancer who raise minor children. While in active treatment, many moms are unable to work and experience a loss of income that can result in catastrophic financial losses and the need to rebuild financial health; in addition, they have trouble managing childcare and general day-to-day Mom duties because of treatment. Mommy and Me Cancer Foundation (MAMCF) provides financial and patient support to help meet basic needs, decrease stress levels and allow breast cancer patients to focus on healing while improving survivorship outcomes, and most importantly, ensuring their young children are supported through the process.
The mission and work of MAMCF inspires us to take action, raise awareness and do all we can to support men and women fighting the good fight, as well as the health providers and caregivers that care for them.
This month, we’ll be sharing many survivor stories from our friends, family and staff, that celebrate their journeys and triumphs. We’ll also be donating 10% of all proceeds of our skincare line to MAMCF. So follow along with us, feel free to share your experiences, and join us in making sure no woman, man or family has to fight alone.
All proceeds from our skincare sales this month using the MAMCF10 code at check out will go to MAMCF.
