AmeriCU Proud Supporter of Breast Cancer Research in CNY

ROME, NY – OCTOBER 3, 2017:  AmeriCU continues its partnership with the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund of CNY, which has to date, raised more than $3.5 million in support of local breast cancer research. The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund of CNY, Inc. supports the work of surgeons, oncologists, and radiologists at SUNY Upstate Medical University. All proceeds raised in Central New York remain in the local community.

This year, AmeriCU is a proud supporter of A Run For Their Life, the only breast cancer run held in Syracuse, NY; the 9th Annual Syracuse Bicycle Breast Cancer Awareness Ride; and a leisurely, two-mile Paddle for the Cure held on Moose River.

To show your support, breast cancer pin-ups can be purchased at all 19 AmeriCU Financial Centers during the month of October. Members and the public can donate as little as $1 to purchase a pin-up in support of the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund of CNY, Inc.

 About the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund
The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, Inc., supports both new and established researchers investigating the causes, prevention and treatment of breast cancer. This research will include—but not be limited to—studies of the genetic, molecular, cellular and environmental factors involved in the development and progression of breast cancer; application of the knowledge thus gained to educate medical professionals and increase public awareness for the prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer; and studies of the outcomes of breast cancer detection and treatment on the patient, their families and society.
