(Phoenix, AZ) October 10, 2016 – Valley Sleep Center is dedicating the month of October to breast cancer awareness. They will be donating 10% of their profits in October to the Provision Project, a local nonprofit whose mission is to provide financial relief to women in active treatment for breast cancer.
While Valley Sleep Center does not diagnose or treat breast cancer, it is a subject that has impacted them tremendously. Lauri Leadley, the owner of Valley Sleep Center, was diagnosed with invasive ductal HER2+ breast cancer in February of 2015. After a double mastectomy and 15 months of chemotherapy, Leadley was pronounced cancer free.
“My struggles with cancer while being a business owner have taught me about love, hope, and how to succeed in this amazing and short little journey called life. In honor of the survivors in our organization, we will be donating 10% of our profit for October to the Provision Project,” says Leadley.
According to the Provision Project website, “Breast cancer changes you. It changes your body. It changes your emotions. It changes your family. It changes your friends. It changes your finances. It changes your life.
We have united here against our common enemy because we have seen what the pressures of breast cancer do to the decision-making process of a woman in the middle of a fight for her life.
- Should she pay her co-pay to get chemo, or should she keep the electricity on at her house?
- Should she pay for her pain medications or buy food for her children?
- Should she find a way to pay for a PET scan recommended by her oncologist even though it’s not covered by her insurance?
These questions aren’t fair. But breast cancer is an equal opportunity destroyer.
Provision Project wants to help women who face difficult financial decisions as they are actively being treated for breast cancer. “We are here to bridge the gap when we can. We are here to give help.”
Lauri Leadley says that she is excited to help other women who are struggling with breast cancer, because so many people were there to help her when she needed it. It was the support of her friends and community that made all of the difference to Lauri and helped her to keep fighting.
Leadley says, “Together we will make a difference. Let’s all stay in the fight until that final round!”
To get involved, Leadley urges people who suspect they have a sleep disorder to contact Valley Sleep Center to set up a consultation with one of their Board-Certified Sleep Physicians. Most insurance companies do not require a referral to go to Valley Sleep Center.
