MIAMI and PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. — Regional pharmacy chain Navarro Discount Pharmacy, which operates 31 locations in south Florida, is supplying pink prescription bottle caps on all prescriptions filled during the month of October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, the company has announced.
“As a community pharmacy, we are focused on supporting activities that educate women, families and children about a variety of health issues,” stated Albert Garcia, EVP pharmacy operations at Navarro Discount Pharmacy.
The company supports and participates in several major breast cancer awareness charitable organizations, including the Susan B. Komen Foundation and the Liga Contra el Cancer (The League Against Cancer).
“Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death among women of all races, including Hispanic origin populations,” stated Cristy Leon-Rivero, VP marketing at Navarro Discount Pharmacy.
In addition to the pink prescription bottle caps, Navarro is using this as an opportunity to remind women to be aware and proactive in an effort to detect breast cancer earlier by conducting their own self-examinations. Breast cancer affects 1-out-of-8 women during their lives. It is the second-leading cancer killer of women in the United States, next to lung cancer. Thanks to screening and detection, breast cancer often can be found early, when the chance of successful treatment is highest.
