Cohen Seglias participated in the National Denim Day on October 7th, a fundraiser supporting Lee Jeans in their fight against Breast Cancer. The firm was pleased to match contributions from attorneys and staff to raise money for cancer research, testing, education and patient/family support.
Since its inception in 1996, Lee National Denim Day has adhered to a simple philosophy: one day, one cause, one cure®. Net proceeds from Lee National Denim Day benefits the Women's Cancer Programs of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) to:
· Benefit Lee Laboratories nationwide, which work to find more effective, less toxic treatments for breast cancer and increase patient access to some of the most significant clinical trials in the nation.
· Support a multi-year effort led by world-class scientists to develop a blood test for earlier detection of breast cancer when survival rates are the highest, known as the EIF Breast Cancer Biomarker Discovery Project.
· Fund the Cancer Support Community (CSC), an international non-profit dedicated to providing support, education and hope to all people affected by cancer. CSC provides the highest quality emotional and social support through a network of nearly 50 local affiliates, including The Wellness Community and Gilda’s Club, more than 100 satellite locations and online.
