The month of September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and more than 15,000 children under the age of 21 are diagnosed with cancer every year within the United States.
Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) September 23, 2016
Uniform Advantage (UA), a multi-channel retailer of uniforms for healthcare and hospitality industries partners in designing a scrub top and jacket with the I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation to raise funds and awareness for better treatments for childhood cancer. UA has been a sponsor of the I Care I Cure Foundation since 2012, contributing more than $11,050 to the organization to help make a difference in the lives of children with cancer.
I Care I Cure is based out of Davie in South Florida and was founded by Beth and Brad Besner, in honor of their son, Ian Besner who was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) just shy of his eleventh birthday. After four months of intensive and excruciating chemotherapy, Ian unfortunately passed away. The Besners established the I Care I Cure foundation after their devastating loss to honor their son’s life and help others by raising awareness of targeted therapies and milder cures to childhood cancer that would be easier for children to endure.
Being a uniforms and medical scrubs supplier in the healthcare industry, UA understands and supports the Besners and their foundation in raising awareness of the growing need for gentler, more tolerable treatments for children with this life-altering disease. Uniform Advantage has launched a new yellow ribbon pattern scrub in support of spreading awareness of childhood cancer. UA will donate $1 from the sale of each “Golden Children White” print scrub top and jacket to the I Care I Cure foundation to help aid in their support of finding better, advanced treatments for childhood cancer.
The month of September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and more than 15,000 children under the age of 21 are diagnosed with cancer every year within the United States.
