It’s important to know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, but it’s even more important to know that when breast cancer is detected early, the survival rate jumps to 100%
Cape Coral, FL (PRWEB) September 21, 2016
Swaney Insurance, a Cape Coral-based insurance and financial planning agency that provides services to families and business owners in the southern Florida Gulf Coast region, is embarking on a charity event to promote breast cancer self-examinations and gather donations for local breast cancer patients.
Current research reveals that nearly 40% of all breast cancer diagnoses are the direct result of women performing a regular breast self-exam and detecting the cancer early, and the Swaney charity event plans to offer real world education to the local public on how important and effective it is for women to establish and maintain a regular self-check regimen.
“It’s important to know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, but it’s even more important to know that when breast cancer is detected early, the survival rate jumps to 100%,” says Patrick Swaney, owner and acting manager of Swaney Insurance.
To offer information to the public on the importance of breast self-exams, and to gather donations that will be used to assist local breast cancer patients, Swaney and his team are utilizing social media and email to connect with families and business owners throughout southern Florida. The Swaney team will soon be publishing a full page article on the charity event in their online magazine “Our Hometown”: http://www.swaneyinsuranceagency.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_39.
A number of Florida-based charitable causes and nonprofit organizations have benefitted from the assistance of the Swaney Insurance team over the last few months. Recently, Swaney Insurance became a member of the nationwide “Agents of Change” charity involvement program, and the agency plans to assist a new local charity every other month.
