Pink Tourniquets Created To Support Breast Cancer Awareness : Press Release


Breast Cancer Awareness – With Pink Tourniquets

Medical Supply Company Goes Above & Beyond, Creating New “Pink” Products To Help Raise Money And Support During October… Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

DALLAS, TX—October 1, 2014: Avcor is proud to support Susan G. Komen in the fight against breast cancer since 2012. Avcor has taken a big step in making a difference by producing a special pink tourniquet and Ice Right product, to help raise awareness in the fight for a cure for Breast Cancer. Avcor donates 10% of the sales of these products or $25K annually (whichever is greater) to Susan G. Komen.


Breast Cancer Awareness – What Companies Are Doing

“If we’re going to win this fight against breast cancer, companies need to do more than just donate money,” said Bruce Cheatham, COO of Avcor. “It’s really easy to donate money to the charity of your choice. Here at Avcor, we saw a big opportunity to improve breast cancer awareness by creating the Pink Tourniquet. Each time it’s used it creates a unique chance to raise awareness about the research for breast cancer. It was a company decision by every employee. Many of us have been touched in one way or another by cancer and we are excited to help make a difference and offer support in seeking a cure for breast cancer.”


Breast Cancer Awareness – Health Care Providers

Dr. Stanley Franklin, medical director of Lewisville Gynecology, is one of many healthcare providers utilizing the pink tourniquets in his office to serve as a reminder to his patients of the Susan G. Komen foundation incentive. Dr. Franklin stresses that until there is a cure, education is the key! In his well-woman visits, he includes a thorough family history evaluation, genetic blood testing (if indicated), and he highly recommends the new 3D mammography, which has a higher sensitivity for detection.
