The Patrick Collision Center in Schaumburg & Naperville Support Breast Cancer Awareness

 


October 29, 2019 marked Patrick Automotive Group's 1st Annual Employee Breast Cancer Awareness Day.

All Patrick employees were encouraged to wear pink, donate $5 towards the fight against breast cancer, and take a department photo to show their support. We are proud to say that employees at each of our locations participated.

All donations collected were delivered to Gateway for Cancer Research, here in Schaumburg, IL. Gateway's vision is: "To shape a world in which a cancer diagnosis is no longer feared."

Above are some photos collected of our successful day, and we look forward to continuing to show our support.

The Thyroid, Head & Neck Cancer Foundation (THANC)

 

The Thyroid, Head & Neck Cancer Foundation's (THANC) mission is to support the research and education in the early detection and treatment of thyroid, head and neck cancer, to advancing new therapies, and to alleviating the suffering and functional impairment of patients who undergo treatment. The THANC Foundation was incorporated in 2003 and quickly became the largest private funder of research in the United States for these types of cancers.

In 2009, THANC became the first U.S. member of the global Head and Neck Research Network (HNRN) and refocused research funding internally on collaborative initiatives as a member of this organization.

In addition to research, THANC funded continuing professional medical education through sponsorship of the Multidisciplinary Management of Head and Neck Cancer and Thyroid and Parathyroid Disease until 2011, when the 20th Annual Course was held. The Foundation supports the Head & Neck Oncologic and Microvascular Reconstructive Surgery, and Thyroid/Parathyroid Surgery Fellowship, a program accredited by the American Head and Neck Society.

THANC's resources also focus on community awareness and education as well as patient outreach and support initiatives. Under the medical direction of Dr. Mark Urken, THANC is housed within the Institute for Head and Neck and Thyroid Cancer at the Phillips Ambulatory Care Center at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center.

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF)

 

 Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra "Alex" Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying her legacy of hope.
