On Friday, October 20th Investors Trust employees from around the globe participated in the Wear it Pink campaign, a worldwide movement highlighting the importance of breast awareness, education and research.
Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women at some point in their life. It is the second-leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer. We all know someone whose life has been cut short by this terrible disease. It is excruciating to endure and heartbreaking to watch. The uplifting news is that numerous ladies can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. Therefore, it’s important to encourage women to get regular mammograms.
With a commitment to healthy living, Investors Trust Cares is invested in the health of their employees and families. We encourage everyone to follow through with annual checkups and pay special attention to any health concerns or warning signs. Learn more by reading our healthy living blog post.
We would like to say a big thank you to our staff at Investors Trust for getting involved in this special event. It’s all about research – let’s find a way to eradicate breast cancer as a terminal illness. We encourage all women to check their breasts regularly and go to the doctor if anything unusual shows up.
