Much of the donations and more than 900 Breast Chek Kits – the first product developed by the company – were given to the Cancer Support community of Arizona, with additional donations benefiting support charities across the country, including Cancer Support Community Los Angeles, Cancer Support Community Central Ohio and Gilda’s Club Middle Tennessee. In total, Plexus donated more than $100,000 in monetary and in-kind donations.
– Too often we overlook the emotional toll that cancer takes on patients. Cancer Support Community Arizona and other similar charities provide vital services that have a profound effect on the health and well-being of people who have received a cancer diagnosis or are in the midst of treatment – said Gene Tipps, Plexus Worldwide chief executive officer. To date, the company has donated more than $400,000 in monetary and in-kind donations to breast cancer organizations.
