Five Weeks of Giving 2014 – The Breast Cancer Research Foundation

December 8, 2014 in Appaman News

Kathleen would like to donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for Appaman’s Five Weeks of Giving tradition.

Kathleen says:

“The Breast Cancer Research Foundation was founded by cosmetics executive Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993. Donations are used to fund clinical and genetic research on breast cancer, including trials for new drug treatments and research projects in vaccine development. This is an important charity to me because my great-grandmother & my grandmother from my mother’s side both passed away from breast cancer and there is a high risk of development for all females in my family.”

This donation will be made in memory of Kathleen’s grandmother, Mildred Behen Loehr.

For more information on this charity, please visit bcrfcure.org and consider them when giving this season.

Every holiday season, Appaman employees each get to select a charity of their choice to receive a donation. View all of 2014’s Five Weeks of Giving selections here.
