Securus Technologies Supports the American Cancer Society through the Company’s eCard Program during October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month | News

DALLAS, Oct. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Securus Technologies is proud to announce the company will be donating fifty percent of proceeds from the company’s “Fight Against Breast Cancer” suite of eCards to the American Cancer Society (ACS) to help in the fight against a disease that takes thousands of lives each year.  According to cancer.org, breast cancer death rates in the U.S. are higher than those for women than any other cancer, besides lung cancer.  Donating financial support to the ACS will help to fund and conduct cancer research, support patients and spread the word about prevention.

The cost to attach an eCard to an email is one Stamp, and the proceeds from all the Stamps used in the month of October for the “Fight Against Breast Cancer” eCard category will be donated to the ACS.  Incarcerated individuals along with their loved ones in almost 40 states can purchase and attach any of the 20 customer-crafted greeting cards celebrating hope for breast cancer survivors and all those touched by the disease. 

“Too many mothers, daughters, sisters and friends are battling this disease – it has to stop,” said Jade Trombetta, Senior Manager, Communications and Social Media for Securus Technologies.  “We have proudly supported this cause for years and thank all other organizations and individuals who prominently wear pink and support the fight against breast cancer during the month of October, and throughout the year.  Together we can beat this.”

“We envision a future where our daughters –our children –will no longer live with the threat of breast cancer,” said the National Leadership Team for the American Cancer Society. “Unfortunately, that future is at risk. The impact of COVID-19 will reduce our ability to fund cancer research by 50% in 2020 –our lowest investment this century if current trends continue. We can’t and won’t allow progress to be put on hold because of COVID-19. At risk are more and better treatments and discoveries that will improve and save lives.”

Veteran’s popular TikTok videos help raise awareness for Wayne County Humane Society

Local veteran is using his platform on TikTok to help get animals adopted from the shelter where he works.

WOOSTER, Ohio — TikTok is the most downloaded app in the world, and has more than 800-million active users worldwide. One of them is Joe Kay of Wooster.

Joe’s TikTok account has over 287,000 followers and his videos have more than ten million likes.

He’s using the social media app to help get animals adopted from the Wayne County Humane Society.

3News Meteorologist Matt Standridge talked to him about how this journey started.

“What made you start thinking, ‘wait, I can start showing off these dogs on TikTok?,’” asked Matt.

“I actually didn’t start off with me in the shelter,” Joe explained. “I started off with my rescue dog and those went viral. So then I was like, well, if they they really like the rescue dogs, let me show them where I work.”

Joe says, his videos took off from there.

The story of how he started working at the shelter is one of bravery.

After serving in the U.S. Marine Corps, he went to college. Joe got a 9-to-5 job but found he wasn’t happy.

That’s when he decided to follow his heart.

“Sitting in a cubicle on a computer all day — I needed something — I needed change. So I just went to the Humane Society. I didn’t think I was going to get hired. I applied and they’re like, ‘well, we only have a cleaning spot open.’ I was like, ‘I’ll take it.’”

Joe was soon named adoption coordinator. Now, he uses TikTok to spread awareness about the shelter and the animals they rescue, who need permanent homes.

“It’s a very stressful place for dogs to be. But I show their process through the shelter. I show us working with them, spending time with them. Getting them ready for adoption and then all the way up to the point, I show them getting adopted.”

Joe’s message is being heard! He’s had people from several states away come to Northeast Ohio to adopt.

“People from Pennsylvania, New York,” says Joe. “I’ve had someone drive from Florida to come to adopt a dog here in Ohio.

Matt also talked to Joe about his fundraising efforts.

“You also have had some other really cool stories. For example, can you tell me about the air conditioner story? That went out in July?,” asked Matt.


“Yes, it was very, very, very hot.” Joe says, “we’re not funded by the county. So the only way we can raise money is either by asking for donations or we put on events.”

“I have never asked for money on TikTok before, so I didn’t know what was going to happen.”

Through his gracious TikTok fans, Joe was able to raise $3,000 to purchase a new air conditioning unit.

Joe’s most popular video has already been viewed nearly 5 million times!

“One night I was getting ready to leave, and I was like,

American Cancer Society Announces Drive-Thru Fundraiser At Jones Beach, Long Island’s Largest Breast Cancer Awareness Event Adjusts To Pandemic

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Thursday marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The usual fundraising events, like breast cancer walks, are going to be much different this year. In fact, as CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez reports, one of Long Island’s biggest fundraisers has become a drive-thru event.

Breast cancer awareness is critical every year and every month, of course. But, many women have been putting off their mammograms, or even cancer treatments, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Cancer doesn’t wait. So, this year, awareness and action are even more important.

The American Cancer Society’s Making Strides of Long Island cancer walks, said to be the largest in the country, have been held annually in October at Jones Beach.

But, these kinds of mass gatherings, especially for cancer patients and survivors, are simply off limits during the pandemic.

RELATED STORY: Doctors Urge Women To Get Breast Screenings Now, Don’t Wait For Pandemic To End

Long Island elected officials, spokeswomen for the American Cancer Society and survivors gathered to make sure breast cancer awareness stays top of mind this month.

“I just want to thank the American Cancer Society for all the things that they’re doing, for having my back and my front in so many ways throughout my fight over the past 16 months,” said Adina Perullo, a breast cancer survivor.

The most interesting announcement: this year’s Making Strides fundraiser will be a drive-thru event.

The fully in-car, rolling pep rally at Jones Beach will be fully compliant with COVID-19 safety guidelines. But, you must make reservations online, ahead of time, for a timeslot on October 18 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
