Leonardo DRS Goes Pink at 2022 AUSA

ARLINGTON, VA, October 11, 2022  ̶  Leonardo DRS Inc. (DRS), announced today that it will grant up to $10,000 in contributions to help military families deal with breast cancer. The company’s exhibit stand at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) expo in Washington, DC, will go “pink” Tuesday, October 11, to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month and encourage event participants to join the effort and recognize friends and relatives who have battled this disease.

In partnership with The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine (HJF), DRS is sponsoring a “Stick It to Breast Cancer” fundraiser at the AUSA trade show. The goal is to raise money for the Look Good, Feel Better program in Bethesda, Maryland. The program gives active and retired military women, men and family members affected by breast cancer an improved quality of life as they undergo and recuperate from cancer treatment.

To participate in the “Stick It to Breast Cancer” fundraiser, AUSA show attendees can pick up a copy of the Defense News Show Daily on Monday, October 10th, with a breast cancer awareness sticker on the front cover.  Show attendees can also pick up stickers at the DRS booth.  If attendees place the sticker on the Wall of Heroes recognition wall at the DRS exhibit stand, adding the name of a loved one who has been touched by breast cancer, DRS will donate ten dollars to HJF to support the Look Good, Feel Better program, up to $10,000.

“Leonardo DRS and HJF have partnered on the ‘Stick It to Cancer’ initiative since 2019,” said HJF President and CEO Joseph Caravalho. “This campaign not only promotes breast cancer awareness, but its donations directly support the Murtha Cancer Center Research Program caring for service members and civilians with this disease. HJF is extremely proud to be partnered with Leonardo DRS in this effort to support MCCRP’s ‘Look Good, Feel Better’ program again this year.”

“We are once again honored to partner with HJF and their important work helping members of the military and their families deal with breast cancer,” said Bill Lynn, CEO of Leonardo DRS.  “Our company believes deeply in supporting the men and women of our Armed Services and their families, and the positive response this initiative receives at AUSA reminds me just how much of an impact HJF has in people’s lives.”

The Look Good Feel Better program is a non-medical public service that teaches beauty techniques to people with breast cancer to help them manage the appearance-related side effects of treatment. The program includes lessons on skin and nail care, cosmetics, wigs and turbans, accessories and styling, helping people with cancer to find some normalcy in a life that is by no means normal.
