The big C word has taken many beautiful lives and left many loved ones shattered by its wrath. Despite major advancements in cancer treatment, one in eight women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in their lives; eighty-five percent of those women will have had no prior family history with the disease. As tragic as a cancer diagnoses can be, it is only half the battle. According to a survey conducted by ACS and the Kaiser Family Foundation, 20 percent of people with health insurance could not afford the cancer treatment necessary to save their lives.
The good news is, 93 percent of women with early breast cancer diagnosis survive beyond 5 years. Early detection is critical in saving the lives of the mothers, daughter and wives of our society.
This is why Alto Health Care Staffing is proud to be a sponsor of the Walk for Women’s Wellness, founded by Kettering Medical Center since 1995. The Wellness Fund provides breast imaging services to women within our community, to ensure cost is no obstacle for any women battling cancer. Over 15,000 women in the greater Dayton area have benefited from this special event, and you can be a part of it too!
As a sponsor, Alto is proud to give back to the community and invites all clients, employees and their families to join us in this amazing cause. Participation is free, but individuals are welcomed to organize individual fundraising.
