This is a cause near and dear to me, for professional and personal reasons
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) May 04, 2015
Each year, the Susan G. Komen organization hosts 5K races throughout the country to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer. This year, Dr. Mark Deutsch and his staff at Perimeter Plastic Surgery will be featured as the entertainment sponsor for the 25th annual Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta “Race for the Cure” on May 9 at the Lenox Square Mall.
The Komen organization hopes have 10,000 participants in this year’s Atlanta race, and to raise $1.2 million. Perimeter Plastic Surgery has not only taken on the role as event sponsor, but Dr. Deutsch and his staff have formed a team called “The Breast Team” to participate in the race themselves.
“This is a cause near and dear to me, for professional and personal reasons,” relates Dr. Deutsch. “I perform many breast reconstructive procedures every year, and am often in contact with women who have had breast cancer. On a personal level, my mother is a breast cancer survivor.”
The Komen organization will use the proceeds from the race to conduct public educational programs to improve awareness and understanding of breast cancer, help fund screening to detect breast cancer early, and fund research towards finding a cure.
Dr. Mark Deutsch’s support for the Komen organization is not limited to his support of the Atlanta “Race for the Cure.” A portion of the proceeds from all breast surgeries he performs at Perimeter Plastic Surgery will be donated to the Susan G. Komen organization.
