Merit Medical - Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2019 - Partnering with BreastCancer.org

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!

BreastCancer.org - Partnering with Merit 2019In 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.

Follow our journey of commitment throughout the month on this page!
