every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer

Once again, American Pest is thrilled to announce that they will continue their partnership with Breast Care for Washington, a local nonprofit that provides breast cancer screenings and care to women in D.C.—where the highest breast cancer mortality rate in the country exists. While the reasons for this alarming statistic vary, access to breast cancer screening is a prime factor.

American Pest has pledged to donate $1 for each residential program service completed during the month of October. Donated funds will go to Breast Care for Washington, a community-centered screening organization that assists medically underserved women by providing no-cost mammograms, healthcare education, clinical breast examinations and patient navigation services.

“With the help of American Pest, its employees and customers, Breast Care for Washington continues to serve the women in our community in greatest need with lifesaving breast cancer screening services,” Says Beth Beck, President & CEO of Breast Care for Washington. “Thank you for standing with us these past five years and allowing us to provide care to over 5,000 women.”

Along with observed “Pink Friday” attire for the corporate office in Fulton, MD and pink personal protective equipment (PPE) and hats for the technicians in the field, American Pest will also schedule various office activities to raise awareness for breast cancer screening throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Breast Care for Washington was founded in 2012 by Dr. Regina Hampton, a breast surgeon, and Beth Beck, M.A., CHES, former executive director of Capital Breast Care Center. The organization’s mission is to reduce breast cancer mortality in the Washington, D.C. area by promoting access to breast cancer screening, diagnostics, and treatment to all women regardless of their ability to pay.
