The American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer bring entire communities together to celebrate breast cancer survivors and provide education about reducing the risk of breast cancer.

In announcing the company’s support for the American Cancer Society San Diego event, BIOTONE president and founder Jean Shea said, “While enormous progress has been made to fight breast cancer, there is still work to be done. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer shows the resolve of communities to continue the fight until this devastating disease is behind us. Along with our participation at this inspiring event taking place in San Diego, BIOTONE will continue to lend our support to end breast cancer through company sponsored research and contributions as we have for many years.”
