Charity of the Month – The Rose

EatSmart fans will continue to select a Charity of the Month in 2016. Fans will submit short stories about the charity’s mission and why it’s meaningful to them. We began our Charity of the Month donations in 2011.the rose logoWe’ve selected the The Rose as our charity of the month for October to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Rose Mission Statement:

The Rose reduces deaths from breast cancer by providing access to screening, diagnostics, and treatment services to any woman regardless of her ability to pay.The Rose addresses any barrier that might keep a woman from caring for her own needs.  Studies show women often put personal needs on hold while tending to the needs of others. Many women cite cost and lack of access as reasons they delay preventive services. Yet, early detection mammography screenings are the most powerful weapons in the fight against breast cancer – which is 98% curable when detected early. For the woman who puts everyone else ahead of her own care, The Rose encourages her to take care of Me2.

Every service offered by The Rose is available to the uninsured through one of many sponsorship programs. In fact the whole purpose of the Empower Her® Sponsorship Program is to ensure any woman has access to breast cancer screening, diagnosis and care. From the initial screening mammogram, through diagnostic procedures such as ultrasound and biopsies as well as access to treatment — all are part of the “quality breast health care” offered at The Rose.

Same day diagnosis, special programs for young women, on-site physicians dedicated to breast health care, advanced digital technology — all reflect The Rose’s emphasis on quality and excellence. The Rose collaborates with the best medical organizations in Texas and reach women from Matagorda to Shelby Counties.

For every new Facebook Fan we (EatSmartProducts) acquire during the month of October, we will donate 50 cents/follower to The Rose. (So spread the word!)

Charity of the Month – Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation

EatSmart fans will continue to select a Charity of the Month in 2016. Fans will submit short stories about the charity’s mission and why it’s meaningful to them. We began our Charity of the Month donations in 2011.

We’ve selected the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation as our charity of the month for July. Our fan, Nina McHale, wrote to us,

My husband Paul was diagnosed with testicular cancer in the fall of 2015. It was not something the doctors expected since it’s not a common form of cancer nor does it usually occur to men in their 40’s. The good news is it’s highly treatable with a very high cure rate. It’s important for men to do a self exam and that is not something Paul or I were aware of previously. We knew that it was important for women to do monthly self exams but had not heard that men should also be doing them. The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation stresses the importance of these exams and it’s something that I urge men to start doing. This isn’t a disease that only young men experience and early detection is important for improving survival rates.  

The Foundation was established in memory of Sean Kimerling, the Emmy Award-winning anchor of WB 11 sports and pre-game announcer for the Mets. Sean died from testicular cancer on September 9, 2003. He was only 37.

SKTCF Mission Statement:
Raising Awareness of testicular cancer and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment.  Providing Answers, and promoting Action in the fight against testicular cancer.

SKTCF Vision Statement:
SKTCF is the premier organization focused on the importance of testicular cancer awareness, early diagnosis, and treatment. The foundation has successfully positioned itself as the primary resource and destination for TC awareness information, and as a vital resource in the fight against TC.

The foundation seeks an environment:

  • Where conversations about TC are open and without embarrassment or stigmatization;
  • Where health providers routinely perform testicular exams;
  • Where information is easily accessible to everyone;
  • Where diagnosis and treatment are addressed when the disease is in its earliest stages;
  • Where those impacted by TC are equipped for success;
  • Where opportunities to join the fight against TC are abundant;
  • Where no man needs to die from this disease.

For every new Twitter Follower we (EatSmartProducts) acquire during the month of July, we will donate 50 cents/follower to Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation. (So spread the word!)
