This year we exceeded our goals and efforts to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
First, we exceeded our donation goal to Breastcancer.org and are pleased to announced a $32,000 donation to BreastCancer.org!
Merit’s facilities and employees around the world all participated enthusiastically in charitable awareness events, education efforts, and recognition activities, which encouraged employee engagement and raised awareness in our communities. In total, 121 photos were shared with us from employees around the world!
Please join us in celebrating a successful Breast Cancer Awareness month with a look back at the photos and memories from the month.
BREAST CANCER “FIGHT CLUB” WALL AT MERIT HQ
The Breast Cancer “Fight Club” wall at our Salt Lake City, UT HQ, was a place to acknowledge the bravery it takes to battle breast cancer and honored our sisters, mothers, daughters, friends, and even ourselves. We had one wall in each of two buildings and they filled up quickly throughout the month. It’s amazing to see how many people are affected by breast cancer.

Each year in October, organizations, companies, and people around the world demonstrate their support for breast cancer, the most common cancer in women worldwide, and work to raise awareness about treatments and detection as part of International Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM).
Merit Medical, with a long-standing commitment to women’s health and products that support the diagnosis and treatment of early-stage breast cancer, enjoys taking time in October to raise awareness in the community as well as among our employees.
Last year all global Merit facilities participated in breast cancer awareness month (take a look back at last year’s BCAM efforts). And this year we will do the same with many education and awareness events planned!
In September, we announced a partnership with Breastcancer.org, an organization that shares Merit’s commitment to reducing the burden of breast cancer and to providing information and choices, so women can make the most informed choices. For the months of September and October, we are committed to donating $1,000 for each SCOUT® console purchased worldwide to Breastcancer.org.
