Frisco, Texas-based Le-Vel Brands recently presented the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) with a donation from the proceeds of its limited-edition NBCF Derma Fusion Technology (DFT) DUO, of which $5 from every purchase in October was earmarked for the NBCF. This is the third consecutive year that Le-Vel has partnered with NBCF to promote breast cancer awareness; the company has donated more than $730,000 in total to NBCF during the past three years.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide, but thanks to better screening and early detection, along with increased awareness and continually improving treatment options, death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1990. NBCF, founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor Janelle Hail, maintains a steadfast mission to provide help and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services. The organization has received the highest rating of four stars by Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator, for 12 years.
“Since 2015, Le-Vel has helped NBCF provide thousands of mammograms and patient navigation services for women in need,” said Hail, who serves as CEO of NBCF. “The donations have also allowed us to provide breast health education and early detection services in communities across America. We could not do this without partners like Le-Vel.”
More than 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the United States today, and that’s largely due to early detection and education. NBCF provides free mammograms to women in all 50 states through its network of hospitals, and offers other free services all aimed at empowering women to take control of their health.
“The National Breast Cancer Foundation works tirelessly on behalf of women’s health,” said Le-Vel Co-CEO, Co-Founder and Co-Owner Paul Gravette. “At Le-Vel, we share that passion. We’re absolutely dedicated to doing whatever we can to champion the cause and encourage women everywhere to educate and empower themselves.”
“This is a disease that affects everyone—individuals and families—and it’s touched many of our Brand Promoters and customers directly,” said Le-Vel Co-CEO, Co-Founder and Co-Owner Jason Camper. “The more we can support the National Breast Cancer Foundation in its efforts to spread the word, provide support and better educate people about breast cancer, the more lives we can impact or even help save. Le-Vel is deeply honored to champion the NBCF’s continued efforts to find a cure, and we look forward to the day when every breast cancer story has a happy ending.”
