Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) December 07, 2011
Earlier.org (http://www.Earlier.org) announced today that Market America (http://www.marketamerica.com) and SHOP.COM (http://www.shop.com) have made a five thousand dollar ($5,000.00) donation towards the fight against breast cancer. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Market America & SHOP.COM allocated a portion of each sale of Motives® by Loren Ridinger’s Collagen Core Lipstick in Inspired, Motives Mineral Lipstick in Brilliant and Isotonix® OPC-3 Beauty Blend to Earlier.org to help in the fight against breast cancer. Both organizations remain committed to raising funds to combat this deadly disease, which affect millions of women a year—all throughout the world.
"We want to thank Market America and each person who participated in this promotion. It was a wonderful surprise to our organization. The funds that were generated will be carefully directed to promising research to find a biological test to detect breast cancer earlier than is possible right now, said Martha Kaley, Founder, Earlier.org. “Scientists are working diligently to identify a better method for detection. Thank you to Market America for their generous contribution, and thank you to everyone who made the decision to support this project through their purchase," said Kaley.
Since its founding in 1995, Earlier.org has focused solely on funding research seeking to identify an earlier detection TEST for breast cancer. Earlier detection may prevent invasive surgery, minimize treatment and dramatically increase survival chances. The organization’s single mission is to direct as many funds as possible, as quickly as possible, to research; in hopes to establish an innovative biological test to detect breast cancer earlier. Earlier.org believes identifying breast cancer at its earliest stages is the best way to allow women who’ve been diagnosed with this disease to not just live - but to live longer, healthier, more fulfilling lives.
“It was a pleasure working with Earlier.org and we look forward to a continued partnership in 2012,” said Brandi Quinn, Vice President of Operations, Market America. “Earlier.org is an amazing organization and we love what they are doing. You know their money is going where it needs to go to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer,” said Quinn.
The single mission at Earlier.org, also known as Friends for An Earlier Breast Cancer Test, is the discovery of an innovative biological test to detect breast cancer earlier. Most breast cancer is in the body five to eight years before it can be detected through current methods. Earlier detection may prevent invasive surgery, minimize treatment and dramatically increase survival chances.
