"Early detection followed by prompt treatment saves lives. It is that simple," said Mr. Bergman. "We are proud to partner with the American Cancer Society to raise awareness and support individuals undergoing treatment, and proud to provide health screenings to our own team, underscoring our deep belief in the importance of wellness and prevention, a fundamental pillar of Henry Schein Cares, our global corporate social responsibility program."
Through 'Think Pink, Practice Pink,' Henry Schein helps the Society raise awareness of breast cancer and other cancers, and supports care provided through Hope Lodge. Hope Lodge is a network of free temporary housing services throughout the country where cancer patients and their loved ones are given a comfortable and supportive place to stay during their treatment and are provided with information to help them make decisions about disease treatment. The Henry Schein Cares Foundation dedicated the Henry Schein Cares Welcome Center at the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge Jerome L. Greene Family Center in New York City in 2010.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, during which the Society and many national public service organizations, professional associations, and government agencies spread the message that early detection of breast cancer followed by prompt treatment saves lives. As part of the 'Think Pink, Practice Pink' program, Team Schein Members will celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a number of activities at Henry Schein's world headquarters in
Melville, N.Y. Team Schein Members will wear pink on
October 11, and be provided with essential information about breast cancer detection. Team Schein Members also contribute their own funds on
October 11, to be donated to the Society.
