Editor’s note: Our 2018 “Year in Review” series, recapping the year’s top stories in pancreatic cancer research, national news, volunteer contributions and more, concludes with our corporate partners. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the fight against pancreatic cancer this year.
Throughout the year, our Cause Marketing partners generously give back to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN), thanks to every day purchases from our supporters. Many of these companies have deep connections to our mission, and we are grateful for all of their programs. Take a look at the complete list of our Cause partnerships.
Since 2014, UMB Bank has issued its Pancreatic Action Cancer Network Visa® Rewards Card, donating $50 for every new account that is used to make a purchase within 90 days of issuance, as well as a percentage of ongoing net retail purchases. Every swipe supports our determination to improve patient outcomes today.
On Me Therapy Pillowcase was originally created by Megan Moran as support for a friend who was diagnosed with cancer. The pillowcases are 100 percent cotton, 300-thread count with 50 percent of proceeds donated to PanCAN.
Created by pancreatic cancer survivor Dr. Balbir Brar, the Embrace® Totaltooth™ toothbrush is a specially designed, three-sided brush that includes a 360° pivoting head. Brar will donate $20 for each Sonic Embrace sold. Take advantage of the promo code (“PANCAN”) for a 40 percent discount.
Brar discovered PanCAN while researching treatment centers and surgeons. He contacted Patient Services and the Associate’s responsiveness convinced him to make PanCAN the beneficiary of his Cause program.
If your tastes run toward jewelry and artwork, there is plenty to choose from, too. Angel of Grace, Hygge Jewelry Lab, Pura Vida, Faithforward, Mahkana and Connie’s Creations offer awareness bracelets, home accents and more. For Angel of Grace, make sure you add ‘to benefit PanCAN’ in the comments section at checkout.
And, of course, the gift that keeps on giving – AmazonSmile. Make sure PanCAN is your charity of choice and .5 percent of all eligible purchases come back to us.
We extend a heartfelt thank you to all our Corporate Champions. We are grateful for their vision and support of each of PanCAN’s four corners: Patient Services, Scientific Research, Government Advocacy and Community Engagement.
