Kaeser Compressors Inc.’s Compressor for a Cure has raised over $20,000 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. While many companies use October to increase awareness for breast cancer screening and prevention, Kaeser believes that what we really need is research to find a cure. Accordingly, Kaeser auctioned off a one-of-a-kind M59PE portable unit — calling it our “Compressor for a Cure.”
The auction began on National Mammogram Day, October 21st and concluded on October 31st with 25 bids raising $21,700 which will be added to individual employee donations for a total of $23,120. Kaeser will donate 100 percent of the proceeds.
“While great strides have been made, too many of our family members and friends are still impacted by breast cancer,” said Frank Mueller, president of Kaeser Compressors, Inc. “We believe meaningful progress towards a cure can be made with more funding for research and want to be part of that effort.”
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide with approximately 2.3 million women diagnosed in 2021. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in American women, and tragically, incidence rates are on the rise.
