Thank you, Chevron Phillips, for helping the Gift of Life save lives!
Every year more than 200,000 American women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Early detection is key to fighting breast cancer and saving lives. The Gift of Life, with funding from Chevron Phillips, provided free mammograms for 34 medically underserved Southeast Texas women April 29, 2015 in Port Arthur.
The Gift of Life is a proud recipient of generous funding from Chevron Phillips, a worldwide chemical corporation that believes real benefits can be gained by establishing effective relationships within the community.
Encouraging organizations that promote private enterprise, health services, education and civic progression has been an investment that has paid great dividends, engendering an internationally-respected reputation founded upon the company’s loyalty and goodwill.
Chevron has built an enduring legacy of compassion, donating funds to worthy causes and encouraging employees to similarly make a positive impact. Since the company’s inception, the corporation has invested more than $15 million (and countless volunteer hours) in communities where its employees live and work.
Chevron Phillips has demonstrated a sincere commitment to the Gift of Life through its consistent support of the program’s breast and prostate cancer initiatives. Company sponsorships, including employee donation-matching incentives, have furthered the program’s ability to reach individuals throughout seven Southeast Texas counties. Each year, Chevron Phillips sponsors a UTMB mobile mammography van site, which has provided nearly 150 free clinical breast exams and mammograms for medically underserved women. The company’s commitment to the Gift of Life’s prostate cancer programs has helped the organization provide primary care tests and prostate cancer treatment for medically underserved Southeast Texas men. Through this initiative, the Gift of Life has provided full treatment and support for 67 men diagnosed with prostate cancer at its screenings.
