Meisner Promotes Breast Cancer Awareness

Meisner Electric’s employees showed their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month by wearing bright pink shirts on Thursday, October 29th.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. Each year, approximately 260,000 women are diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in the United States. For every 100,000 women, 125 new Female Breast Cancer cases are reported and 20 women die of this cancer annually according to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control). If detected and diagnosed early enough, the survival rate increases significantly. Meisner Electric supports annual testing for all of its employees and gives generously to all forms of cancer research.
