EDISON, N.J., Oct. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Every October, Dr. Leonard’s® Healthcare Corp. comes together as a company—and a family—to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This heartbreaking disease is the most common form of cancer for women worldwide. And, in this country, a woman receives the chilling diagnosis every two minutes. That’s hundreds of thousands of mothers, sisters, daughters, friends — and their families —who are touched by the disease each year.
Wear Pink to Work Day
To raise awareness in the workplace and foster a culture of support, Dr. Leonard’s hosts an annual Wear Pink to Work Day. Associates in its Edison, NJ offices are invited to come to work wearing a piece of pink clothing – or entire pink outfit. The participation is always high, and the results are quite inspiring.
Partnering with Susan G. Komen®
This year, Dr. Leonard’s® is partnering with Susan G. Komen® to advance their mission to save lives, ensure quality care for all—and help find a cure. Since its inception, Komen® has raised nearly $1.5 billion and is the largest breast cancer organization in the United States.

Breast Cancer Awareness Bracelet Program
Dr. Leonard’s is honored to support the Komen® Foundation through the Breast Cancer Awareness Bracelet Program.
