Years ago, in collaboration with the Susan G. Komen® organization of Northwest Ohio, we established the Shred Cancer program. This program was the first of its kind in the country for a document destruction company. As a participant, you establish a donation amount of your choosing and we’ll match it dollar-for-dollar every time we pick up your bins. All participating customers have the option of choosing a pink shred bin, or any other standard shred bin.
Breast Cancer research is a long and expensive process. It can take well over 15 years and $5 billion to translate a discovery in the lab into a new drug that can be used by patients. At Komen, they have a rigorous review process for selecting research grants, called peer-review. Peer-review is a grant review process used by many organizations, including the National Institutes of Health, to determine which research grants will be funded. By using this rigorous process, Komen strives to fund the very best research – funding projects that have the potential to advance the field and have an impact on patients as rapidly as possible.
To date, their research dollars have helped support more than:
- 2400 research grants in 49 states and 20 countries
- 460 clinical trials
- 300 research advocates
- 60 partnerships and collaborations
- 60 scientific conferences
Like Nancy Brinker’s promise to her sister Susan, our goal is to end breast cancer forever. To date, we’ve raised nearly $100,000 towards breast cancer research. That’s right – one-hundred thousand dollars.
