For 3 Sisters Welcomes
Spartan Medical, Inc., and JBH Innovation as Corporate Sponsors
Olney, MD, August 31, 2017 – For 3 Sisters, a national grassroots breast cancer advocacy organization, is proud to announce Spartan Medical, Inc. and sister company, JBH Innovation, as corporate sponsors. The commitment to support those affected by breast cancer hits close to home as one of Spartan’s own, Jamie Bulken-Hoover, passed away after a valiant battle with breast cancer one year ago.
“The executive team of Spartan Medical, and the entire Spartan family, lost our finest in July 2016 to metastatic breast cancer…too early and far too suddenly,” says Vince Proffitt, President, Spartan Medical, and cofounder of JBH Innovation. “Jamie Bulken-Hoover was a model American, an incredible physician, a brilliant biomedical engineer, a decorated U.S. Military Officer, and a cherished daughter, mother, wife, and friend…her loss is incalculable to so many. In her memory and honor, we created JBH Innovation in April 2017 with the mission to proudly lead the way to create real solutions to the surgical problems clinicians deal with daily and to improve patient care in the DoD, VA Healthcare System, and civilian hospitals, nationwide. Part of our DNA has always been to give back and to support worthy causes that we care passionately about, and it took mere seconds to choose For 3 Sisters for all of us. In honor of Jamie, we look forward to partnering with For 3 Sisters now, and for years to come.”
Contributions from Spartan Medical and JBH Innovation will further For 3 Sisters’ mission to raise awareness and improve the quality of life for men and women affected by breast cancer.
“We are honored to have sponsors that are deeply committed to the breast cancer community,” says Shannon Moneymaker, Executive Director, For 3 Sisters. “With the contributions from sponsors, we can help breast cancer fighters and survivors with their needs long after treatment. Financial and emotional challenges faced by breast cancer fighters and survivors is a public crisis that affects an alarmingly high number of people in our nation, including women and men.”
Shannon Moneymaker is the Executive Director of F3S and experiences life in the breast cancer community, not through just her own eyes but through the eyes of others.
