As Depo International was planning its October marketing campaign, Patricia Carl, Founder and President of the company, politely interrupted all of her staff. She informed us that the coming month was October. Met with many blank stares, she elaborated. “October is a special month to me. As you may or may not be aware, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. This cause is the most near and dear to my heart.”
Being a new employee, and still being intimidated by “The Boss,” I didn’t exactly know what to think, let alone how to respond to her statement. After a moment of curious silence, she continued. “My mother passed away from breast cancer more than thirty years ago. I made a promise to her that I would make a difference. I promised that I would support finding a cure for this deadly disease. I promised that I would turn her story of tragedy into a story of survival for women generations to come.”
While many people view Breast Cancer Awareness Month as a chance to raise awareness about this terrible disease, Patricia views this month as a chance to uphold her promise to her mother. There has been great progress made in the fight against breast cancer but there is still more to do. During the month of October, Depo International will be donating $5.00 for every deposition scheduled to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. We at Depo International, and especially Patricia Carl, sincerely appreciate all of our loyal clients who, during the month of October, are helping us fight this terrible disease. Together we WILL find a cure!
