October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, & this year, we are teaming up with The American Breast Cancer Foundation to advocate & bring awareness to early detection, support services, & education to fight this disease. Breast cancer is a global burden & is the most common cancer in the world among women. In the United States, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death for all women. Recognizing these facts promotes us, like many of you, to get involved & make a difference.
To put our fight into action, R.C. Hatton Farms is proud to announce it has established a partnership with The American Breast Cancer Foundation (ABCF) a 501(c)3 non-profit organization headquartered in Columbia, MD to help provide financial assistance for breast cancer screenings, education, & support services to individuals who are uninsured & underserved. Along with the ABCF, we believe that everyone deserves access to diagnostic tests that may detect cancer at its earliest stage.
Each year, both men & women nationwide receive life-saving services provided by The American Breast Cancer Foundation to aid in the early detection, treatment, & survival of breast cancer. These support programs provide direct assistance grants to reduce the financial barriers of individuals regardless of age, race, or gender. However, these grants are only made possible when businesses, like us, partner with ABCF in support of the endeavor to “Extend the Reach of the Rescue” & help those who have nowhere else to turn.
Throughout the month of October, you will notice a pink ABCF sticker on our packages of sweet corn (as seen above). Every time one of our packs of corn wearing this sticker is sold, we will contribute 10 cents to The American Breast Cancer Foundation! We know what we do best – farming, & therefore, what better way for us to help make a difference than to donate a portion of our sales to an organization that is doing what they do best – fighting breast cancer! Pick up your fresh, sweet corn from your local Publix today!
So, join us as we support the American Breast Cancer Foundation to save lives with the power of early detection, education, & support by picking up a pack of your favorite sweet corn with the pink sticker!
