How you can support breast cancer research this October
Since 2005, Delta has proudly supported 99 Breast Cancer Research Foundation research projects, raising more than $24.75 million.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Delta will once again turn pink to support the cause.
“Because of early detection, I was able to start my fight right away,” said Christine Mannion Taylor, senior vice president of aviation services and a breast cancer survivor. “And by a stroke of luck, I received life-saving treatment and care.” This was through doctors who were funded through our BCRF partnership. Delta’s involvement and annual promotion of the cause is now personal; It means the world to me. The continued generosity and support of Delta employees and customers is amazing, and I could not be more grateful.”
In 2023 alone, an estimated 297,790 women and 2,800 men in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer. The next round of funding – and future achievements – depend on what happens now.
“BCRF has always been a cause near and dear to my heart, but when my mother was diagnosed last year, it took on a whole new meaning. When I stood by her side as she battled breast cancer so bravely, I was I know I would do anything to find a cure.” “I am humbled by Delta’s steadfast presence in this fight as we work together to fund research and support survivors and fighters, knowing that we will not stop, we have ended this disease.”
Each year, our clients play an integral role in our fundraising efforts. Keep reading to find out ways you can support, both at home and on air. Donations can be made year-round at delta.com/BCRF.
