BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
According to Cancer.org estimates, this year there will be more than 230,000 new cases of breast cancer and nearly 40,000 deaths in the United States alone. However, there is some positive news – breast cancer rates continue to decrease likely due to early detection and better treatment. Today there are more than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. And for that, we say ‘thank you’ to all of our friends at the universities, small private labs, and large pharmaceutical companies across the globe, for your hard work and dedication to helping our families live longer, healthier lives.
While ALT has been providing premium refurbished lab equipment to the life sciences community for more than 14 years, we recognize that this is just one small part of finding a solution to an extremely complex problem. Therefore, ALT will once again be supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month by making a financial contribution to The Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale in New Haven, CT and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
