Shelby Township, MI (PressExposure) August 19, 2009 -- ALL WASTE president and founder, Sherman Rogers, and his family knows all to well what it means to fight the battles against breast cancer. Shermanâs wife, Michele, began her own courageous battle three years ago and won.
It wasnât too long ago when a diagnosis of breast cancer was a death sentence for everyone. Today, nearly 90% of women diagnosed with breast cancer will survive their disease at least 5 years, according to the National Cancer Institute. Yet, with fund raising, community awareness activities and corporate sponsorship of those activities the next five years will see an extension of five-year survival rates and a high percentage figure closer to 100%.
Shermanâs goal in 2009 is to draw more attention of the communities that his company serves than in the past two years. In 2007, ALL WASTE painted its roll off dumpsters, garbage dumpsters and roll containers pink. Last yearâs 3-day, 60-mile walk was supported by ALL WASTE. Shermanâs company supplied all trash pick up services throughout the event. ALL WASTE will join the elite sponsors in this yearâs Breast Cancer Walk such as the âNever say quit spiritâ of the Energizer Bunny, Bank of America and New Balance.
Eighty-five percent of the net proceeds of this event go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Every advancement in breast cancer research, treatment, education and prevention in the last 25 years has been touched by a Komen for the Cure grant. For more information about Susan G. Komen for the Cure, breast health or breast cancer, visit http://www.komen.org/ or call 1 877 GO KOMEN.
