19 September 2019, at 12:16pm

Aquaculture and water monitoring company, Precision Measurement Engineering (PME), has pledged to donate 2.5 percent of sales of key products to breast cancer research in October and November.

“I am excited to help provide funding for breast cancer research,” said Kristin Elliott, CEO of Precision Measurement Engineering. “Many of our customers have been impacted by breast cancer, and I have personal experience with loved ones suffering from this terrible disease. It’s important to all of us at PME to support not only the environment, but other causes that affect us as well.”

Approximately 1 in 8 women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer at some point during their lifetime. Researchers estimate that in 2019 alone, more than 268,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and another 62,000 will develop non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer. Over 40,000 women are expected to die from breast cancer in 2019.

PME will donate 2.5 percent of its sales of miniDOT loggers, miniDOT Clear loggers, or miniWIPERs during October or November to METAvivor.org. The charity is dedicated to the specific fight of women and men living with Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer (MBC), with the goal of making MBC, right now a terminal diagnosis, into a chronic but manageable disease with a decent quality of life.

“It is our hope that this donation will aid important research that will extend and improve the quality of life for metastatic breast cancer patients,” said Elliott.
