J.E. Ber­gasse & Com­pany Com­mits More To Breast Can­cer Re­search

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

J.E. Ber­gasse & Com­pany Ltd (JEB) is, once again, a Gold Spon­sor of the Massy Stores Yo­plait Walk for Can­cer for a third con­sec­u­tive year. It is the com­pany’s be­lief that there is a crit­i­cal need for expert re­search on breast can­cer and this com­mit­ment, it strongly feels, will, one day, have a pos­i­tive im­pact on breast health care and aware­ness.

“We un­der­stand breast can­cer can take an in­cred­i­ble emo­tional and fi­nan­cial toll on its vic­tims, so we are proud to as­sist a cam­paign that will pro­vide sup­port, cre­ate aware­ness and sus­tain re­search to find a cure for this po­ten­tially fatal dis­ease,” said An­thony Ber­gasse, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, J.E. Ber­gasse & Com­pany Ltd.

This year, J.E. Ber­gasse is giv­ing more to those in need. As part of the com­pany’s ac­tiv­i­ties for Breast Can­cer Aware­ness Month, one per­cent of on­line (www.shop.je­ber­gasse.com) sales for the month of Oc­to­ber will be do­nated to the Saint Lu­cia Can­cer So­ci­ety. The on­line cam­paign also pro­vides cus­tomers with a chance to win a din­ner for two at the Buzz Restau­rant.

Through­out the year, J.E Ber­gasse as­sists Faces of Can­cer with free print­ing of all the col­lat­eral ma­te­rial for their fundrais­ing events through its Doc­u­ment Cen­tre and, in Oc­to­ber, has pro­vided do­na­tions to­wards clin­i­cal breast ex­ams in sup­port of the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s early de­tec­tion mea­sures.

The J.E. Ber­gasse & Com­pany staff all wore pink on Oc­to­ber 21 in recog­ni­tion of help­ing to pro­vide life-sav­ing early de­tec­tion ser­vices for those in need.

The com­pany also spon­sors the reg­is­tra­tion of their staff to en­cour­age their par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Massy Stores Yo­plait Walk for Can­cer to be held this year on Novem­ber 6. This year forty-one em­ploy­ees of the com­pany will take part in the iconic walk.

JEB is mak­ing a spe­cial plea to mem­bers of the pub­lic to show their sup­port by join­ing them in find­ing ‘So Many Ways To Help Fight Breast Can­cer’.
