Maine Breast Cancer Coalition representatives were honored to meet many of the Fisher employees at a presentation at Fisher Engineering in Rockland, and to learn about the company’s strong commitment to community service.
In conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Fisher Engineering made available a special limited-edition pink lift arm kit. This kit was available for purchase through FISHER® snowplow dealer locations. For every kit purchased, Fisher Engineering made a $50 donation to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition “in support of” or “in memory of” a person of the retail customer’s choosing. Fisher Engineeering also donated the proceeds from sales of "Find the Cure" pink hats to MBCC.
All of us at Maine Breast Cancer Coalition greatly appreciate the generosity of Fisher Engineering!
Currently, Medicare and many private insurance policies fail to cover the costs of the daily compression supplies people with lymphedema need to control their swelling. People who can’t afford these supplies are left with worsening lymphedema, which can lead to infections and even long-term disability.
MBCC President Bethany Zell wrote,
"Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® is the National Breast Cancer Coalition's global initiative to know how to end breast cancer by January 1, 2020. As leaders in the breast cancer movement and supporters of Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®, we are committed to being a part of this important work.
