Shop for the Cause
In 2017, over 250,000 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer.
In 2017, more than 40,000 women will die from breast cancer.
Those statistics are scary but they are real. As a community, as a family, and as individuals we must take a stand against the second leading cause of cancer death in women.
Through October 16th, we invite you to join us in the fight against breast cancer. During our Shop for the Cause campaign, when you make a purchase online or in stores, you’ll receive 20% on your purchase of furniture, mattresses, and accessories when you make a $20 donation to the American Cancer Society. Lacks will match donations, dollar for dollar up to $10,000.
Thanks to your support and generosity, last year we were able to present the American Cancer Society with a check for almost $25,000!
Together, We Make A Difference
Time to Zumba!
We aren’t just your average warriors, we’re Pink-a-licious Warrirors! Our annual Zumbathon attracts people of all shapes, sizes, and ages who shimmy and shake in the face of this disease. Two hours of zumba, laughs, and sweat. Take that, cancer! Participants’ registration fees proceed the Relay for Life.
Race for the Cure-Mission Pink
For 3 years, we were proud sponsors of the Mission Pink 5k for Breast Cancer Awareness. Proceeds from this event helped provide free mammograms to women over 40 in our community. Not only did we partially sponsor this event, our Lacks family actively participated in the 5k!
On Fridays We Wear Pink
From blush to fuchsia, pink isn’t just a color we wear, it’s an attitude! Pink Fridays at Lacks is just one way we spread awareness and show solidarity with our community of breast cancer warriors. Support is a team effort here, we are a family and together we take a stand against this disease.
Family isn’t just a word we use, it’s the way we treat each other. When one of us is struggling, we come together and support each other because that’s what family is all about. We are incredibly proud of our breast cancer survivors Ninfa Ramirez, Kelli Salas and Tricia Campos. They have stared this disease in the face and come out victorious and stronger than ever. Their resiliency and advocacy inspired us to take action and with help from the community, we have been able to donate thousands of dollars to the American Cancer Society over the years. These brave women are living proof that there is hope.
