Chem-Dry has pledged to donate $25,000 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. We are passionate about this cause because we know that millions of people worldwide are impacted by the effects of breast cancer. Chem-Dry has chosen to partner with NBCF because we support their mission of providing programs that give women help for today and hope for tomorrow.
Nearly 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. The National Breast Cancer Foundation is committed to spreading knowledge and fostering hope in the fight against breast cancer. Their mission is to save lives by increasing awareness of breast cancer through education and by providing mammograms for those in need.
Arm yourself and your family with knowledge about the risks of breast cancer, early detection and life after the diagnosis. Hearing the words "you have breast cancer" doesn't always mean it's the end. It can be the beginning of learning how to fight, getting the facts and finding hope.
About 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. The disease impacts mothers, wives, sisters and families around the world. No one is alone in the struggle. Chem-Dry franchise owners and customers share their stories of how breast cancer has impacted them.
Funds donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation will help save lives. NBCF uses donations to promote early breast cancer detection and provide free mammograms to women in need. Their educational programs also provide answers to anyone whose life is affected by breast cancer. Help support the cause and donate today. Every little bit makes a difference.
All across the nation Chem-Dry franchise owners are joining the fight against breast cancer. Each franchise is individually owned and operated and will offer a program to benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
