Poly (NYSE: POLY) today announced a limited edition pink Poly Sync 20 speakerphone in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which will be available in October while supplies last. For every pink Poly Sync 20 sold, Poly will donate $10 to National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Poly is partnering with National Breast Cancer Foundation in support of their fight against breast cancer which focuses on early detection, education, and support services for those affected by breast cancer.
Research shows about one in eight U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. In 2021, over 280,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women and about 2,650 in men. While we don’t have a cure to end breast cancer, raising awareness surrounding breast cancer is crucial as early detection often means less invasive and debilitating treatments are required. 63 percent of breast cancer cases are diagnosed at a localized stage, for which the 5-year survival rate is 99 percent, according to Cancer.net.
“As a breast cancer survivor, I am proud to work for a company that supports this cause and aims to help raise awareness of breast cancer,” said Tamara Lane, Director, Product Marketing, Personal Solutions, Poly. “I strongly believe that early detection is key to becoming a cancer survivor and Poly’s initiative will raise funds that support services for those affected by the disease.”
