Making Strides, In Honor Of Our Dear Friend And Colleague

We have always believed in the importance of supporting the community and giving to those in need.  But this year, we have a very personal reason to champion a particular cause – the Fight Against Breast Cancer. 

We  lost a treasured member of our practice’s family to this deadly disease, our fantastic team member Tina, and we know that so many of our patients miss her warmth and dedication as much as we do.  She was truly a blessing and we feel her loss every day.

Since October has traditionally been dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness, we couldn’t think of a better way to honor Tina than by contributing to the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign through Making Strides of Syracuse, Presented by Upstate Cancer Center.

We know that many of our patient’s lives have also been touched by breast cancer in one way or another. So, as part of our commitment, we would also like to offer our patients an opportunity to help us support this great cause.  That’s why we will be matching any donations our patients make, dollar for dollar, throughout the month of October.

For convenience, we have set up a donation box in our office, and anyone can contribute online by visiting our Making Strides team site:

Right now, there is no cure for breast cancer, so every dollar given to find one represents the hope that in the future, we can save more of our loved ones from this terrible disease. So please, donate if you are able, and we will do our part by matching what you give.

We are truly grateful for your kind support.

 Sincerely,

Dr. Pearce and the team at Baldwinsville Gentle Dentistry.
