Precision Therapeutics will sponsor the Pittsburgh Chapter of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition's 'Walk to Break the Silence' on Sunday, September 12, 2010.
The walk, which takes place at the North Park Boathouse, is an optional 1 or 5 mile hike to benefit ovarian cancer awareness.
Hoping that a great number of its employees will unite to help fortify the partnerships it has forged in supporting the very cancer patients that it helps physicians treat, Precision has offered to cover the registration fee for any employee who wishes to help make this event a success.
'It is of utmost importance for Precision to support the promotion of ovarian cancer awareness,' says Sean McDonald, CEO of Precision. 'Our alliance with local and national cancer advocates demonstrates our dedication to the advancement of personalized cancer treatments and offers our employees the ability to support these important organizations.'
