We are proud to be a supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We pledge to donate $25.00 for every new case received in the month of October which settles before the end of November 2013. The donation will be given to the Fearlessly Pink fundraiser hosted by Tigerlily Foundation founded by Maimah Karmo. Visit the Tiger Lily Foundation Website
