Retail Minded To Donate To Brain Cancer Charity
In 2005, the father of Retail Minded’s founder Nicole Leinbach Reyhle passed away after a long, courageous battle with brain cancer. This year marks the five year anniversary of his passing and in honor of his memory, Retail Minded will be donating a percentage of all sales in 2010 to the American Brain Cancer Association.
Because symptoms of brain tumors mimic that of many other diseases and conditions, brain cancer can be very difficult to diagnose. There are more than 120 types of brain tumors and it is estimated that more than 62,000 primary brain tumors will be diagnosed in 2010. In addition, many more brain tumors will develop as a result of cancer metastasizing from other parts of the body.
The American Brain Cancer Association is dedicated to supporting the advancement of medical treatment for brain tumors, including earlier diagnosis options. Because the cause of brain tumors are still unknown, this is such an important health battle to raise awareness to. Sadly, they often result in death and are the leading cause of solid tumor death in children under 20 years old. Retail Minded is proud to support their research by contributing to their organization and it is our hope that in time, more knowledge will help prevent the untimely deaths of so many people.
If you are a client of Retail Minded, you can be proud to know that a percentage of your project fee or consultation rate will be donated to the American Brain Tumor Association. Learn more about this fabulous charity by visiting their website at www.ABTA.org.
In memory of Paul Bitzer Leinbach III.
Good for you! I have a close family member going through cancer as well. Even though prognosis looks good, it’s still such a worry. So cancer-related charities have become more important to me, now, too. It’s great that you are remembering your father in such a helpful way.
