Bronx, NY (PR Web)– The United Breast Cancer Foundation is thrilled to be working with the world-famous Major League Baseball team, the New York Yankees, during Women’s Health Month this May. Together, they will “batter up to fight breast cancer”. The Yankees have made it a tradition during Women’s Health Month to highlight extraordinary organizations in the fight against breast cancer, and this year, the platinum-rated nonprofit United Breast Cancer Foundation was chosen to be a part of that tradition.
For select games during Women’s Health Month, the Yankees will donate a portion of every ticket sold to the United Breast Cancer Foundation! Fans that purchase tickets through this special offer will receive a limited edition New York Yankees Hat with a pink Yankees logo co-branded with a pink ribbon. Each Special Event Ticket will also include a regular-sized hot dog and your first drink. Tickets are currently available for home games on May 12th, 13th, and 14th against the Tampa Bay Rays.
“UBCF is very excited about working with the New York Yankees, our hometown heroes!” said Executive Director, Stephanie Mastroianni. “Thanks to our work with the Yankees, we will bring more awareness to UBCF’s programs. We encourage everyone to learn about breast health. Self-awareness is critical to early detection, visit ubcf.org for resources.”
Women’s Health Month is a special time to raise awareness. Breast cancer is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. While there is a genetic link to breast cancer, only 5-10% of breast cancers are linked to inherited gene mutations, and while rare, men can develop breast cancer too.
“The United Breast Cancer Foundation has helped save my life!” said UBCF client Taylor W. “Last Fall, I began experiencing breast pain, and my sister suggested a thermography exam. I looked into it, and it was out of my price range. Fortunately, the woman told me that I might be able to get help through UBCF, and to my great relief, they covered the entire cost of this exam. Thank you for everything you do!”
Since 2000, it has been UBCF’s mission to make a positive impact in the lives of those affected by breast cancer. We provide resources as well as educate the public by offering various programs to support women, men, and families battling breast cancer. We also assist those in need of early detection services. Be sure to download a free self-breast exam from our website. To learn more about our organization and services, please visit www.UBCF.org.
