Flower Mound, TX, Oct. 1, 2019 – In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Hitachi Capital America Transportation Finance team will make a monetary donation to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. In an effort to help spread additional awareness, members of the team also plan to wear pink to all customer visits during the month of October.
“We were inspired to act because many of our business partners have been impacted by breast cancer. Our offices are near Susan G. Koman’s corporate headquarters and helping a local organization with such an incredible and impactful mission is something our team is excited to do as many of us have personal experiences with friends and family who have been affected by the disease,” says Dave Herring, Vice President and General Manager of Retail Division, Transportation Finance.
Susan G. Komen is the world’s largest breast cancer organization, funding more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit while providing real-time help to those facing the disease. The organization has set a bold goal to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the U.S. by 2026. According to their website, in 2019, an estimated 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 2,670 new cases in men.❮ Back to Previous
