Firm will make a donation to Holy Cross Hospital’s Partners in Breast Health program for photos posted to Berger Commercial Realty’s Facebook page
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Berger Commercial Realty, a Fort Lauderdale-based commercial real estate firm, is launching a fundraising campaign for Holy Cross Hospital’s Partners in Breast Health program.
The firm will donate $5 to the program for every person who posts a picture of themselves wearing pink to Facebook.com/BergerCommercialRealtyCorp between now and October 31st.
Additionally, the firm has placed pink ribbons on its for-sale and for-lease signs throughout the tri-county area, and will donate $5 to Partners in Breast Health for every person who takes a photo in front of a sign and posts it to the firm’s Facebook page. The firm will donate up to $5,000 total.
Properties featuring the pink-ribbon real estate signs include the Courthouse Law Plaza at 700 S.E. 3rd Ave. in Fort Lauderdale, Harbor Place at 1600 S.E. 17th St. in Fort Lauderdale, Plantation Technology Park at 1700 N.W. 66th Ave. in Plantation, and the Vista Center at 2005 Vista Parkway in West Palm Beach, among more than 50 other locations.
“Breast cancer is a disease that touches so many right here in our local community,” said Berger Commercial Realty President Lloyd Berger. “We are donating to Holy Cross Hospital’s Partners in Breast Health program to help reduce cancer deaths among Broward County’s most vulnerable and in-need populations.”
Established in 2011, Holy Cross Hospital’s Partners in Breast Health program aims to improve early cancer diagnosis and access to treatment among underserved communities in Broward County. Since 2011, the program has provided more than 1,500 free diagnostic procedures for women who are at the federal poverty level, and 15 women have been diagnosed and treated for breast cancer.
“Many of the clients we serve have never had a screening mammogram and may not practice preventative healthcare. Often, breast cancer diagnosis is made late and treatment options are limited especially in uninsured and minority populations,” said Holy Cross Hospital Community Outreach Director Kim Saiswick, RN. “The Partners in Breast Health program works to remove many of the barriers individuals may have to accessing health care by providing healthcare in the community at convenient times and locations.”
