Bluehost is committed to Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Above, some of our dye-hard admins, Aaron Barrus, Jason Earl, and Paul Matthews.
Did you know one out of three women and one out of two men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime? It’s true. More than 562,000 Americans are projected to die of cancer this year alone, with over 40,000 of these deaths due to breast cancer.
These numbers aren’t just faceless statistics, these are people we know. Our friends, family members, neighbors, and colleagues are those who struggle to overcome this tragic disease. Fortunately, thanks to the regular support given over the years to increase awareness and find a cure, breast cancer incidence rates in the U.S. have been steadily decreasing by about 2% per year.
At Bluehost, we want to do our part to help continue and even speed up this trend, so for the entire month of October we pledge to donate a portion of the proceeds we receive from every new customer to the Huntsman Cancer Institute.
The Huntsman Cancer Institute is one of the world’s leading cancer research facilities. They maintain the largest, most comprehensive population database used for biomedical research, consisting of over 12 million records. At any given time, 215 or more clinical trials are underway, pushing the medical envelope of progress. Thanks to their research, dozens of new treatments are now available as a “best, last hope” for those battling late stage cancers. Last year, through Phase I clinical trials, HCI was able to offer dozens of new cancer treatments to patients who had been told their prognosis was terminal.
We at Bluehost are excited to be able to make a contribution to the fight against breast cancer. If you’d like to make a difference, consider a personal contribution today. 100% of donations are directed to research (not towards overhead or operating expenses.)
