Breast Cancer Awareness October 2018

Thank you for your support!

The $49 diagnosis donation campaign has ended, but you can still donate to the Cancer Society.

You may recall our “not just a pink shirt” campaign from last year, but this year we want to make an even bigger contribution to the Cancer Society! We’re doing this by offering all customers a discounted rate on our expert appliance diagnosis services (Regularly $89*) for just $49 and donating 100% of the $49 diagnosis straight to the Cancer Society to assist with early diagnosis and prevention.

Important: The reduced diagnosis of $49 strictly applies to those customers who receive a diagnosis and proceed forward with the technician’s recommendations. Those who elect to receive diagnosis only will be billed at the regular $89 fee.

Step 1: Book Service

Call Us or click Get Service below to schedule a technician to diagnose your appliance issue. Once diagnosed, our certified technicians will present you with options to get your appliances back in no time!

Step 2: Fee = Donation

At the time of service our team will add the discounted $49 diagnosis fee (normally $89) to your invoice. The invoice will state that 100% of the diagnosis fee will go directly to the Cancer Society!

Step 3: Big Check!

Throughout the month, we’ll be shouting out the customers that have helped us support the Cancer Society. At the end of October, we’ll present one big check for all funds raised throughout the month.

FAQ

An appliance diagnosis service is similar to feeling sick and making a visit to the doctor to see what0s going on except that our certified technicians are diagnosing your ill appliances rather than you!  Just like the doctor, our technicians will conduct a series of efforts to check the vital signs of your appliances and then present options to further diagnose serious issues or present solutions for a cure. This service is typically $89 but for the month of October and in connection with the Diagnosis for Diagnosis campaign this fee is reduced to $49.

The month of October is breast cancer awareness month. Accordingly, the promotion will also last the entire month of October.

Absolutely not! You may donate on your own to the Breast Cancer Foundation and/or the Cayman Islands Cancer Society. Your donation to either organization is a donation towards prevention, research, or support for those battling the disease. Donate to one or donate to both. Either way, your donation is greatly appreciated!

To raise awareness, all the Appliance Doctors staff are provided pink polo shirts and are encouraged to wear them as much as possible throughout the month October. We’ve been doing this for a number of years and it helps raise awareness in the fight against Breast Cancer. Join us and wear pink!

Absolutely. For your convenience, we planned to simply add the diagnosis for diagnosis fee to your invoice and later donate the funds to the Cancer Society all at once. However, if you feel more comfortable making the payment directly, we’ll gladly remove the diagnosis fee from your invoice in exchange for a check written directly to the Cancer Society during your service call.

Since this promotion applies to the diagnosis service only; any repairs, upgrades, or advanced tests will be billed separately as normal.

Yes, the normal business hours diagnosis fee is $89. Currently, when Appliance Doctors diagnoses your appliances and you proceed forward with the recommended repairs your fee for diagnosis will be $49 and this fee will be donated 100% to the Cayman Islands Cancer Society. If you do not proceed forward with repair or donation to the Cancer society then the full $89 diagnosis fee shall apply.

It’s more than just a pink shirt to us. Every October, we do our part to help raise awareness and funding for breast cancer research. With one in eight women diagnosed with the disease in their lifetimes, it touches more and more families every year. Here at Appliance Doctors, we choose to help fight in the best way we know how.

This October we’re offering a Diagnosis for Diagnosis. Over 260,000 women are expected to be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 2018. And though their chances of developing the disease is much lower, about one in one thousand men will be diagnosed in their lifetimes as well. The estimated figure of diagnosis in men for 2018 is over 2,500.

Thanks to the collective efforts by concerned individuals like you, and companies like ours, breast cancer rates have been declining for the last 2 decades. Funding education and access to screening and treatment are the keys to shrinking the numbers. However, in 2018, it’s still estimated that nearly 41,000 women will die from an aggressive form of breast cancer. That’s why it’s still so important that we continue our efforts to raise funding and awareness. We can keep shrinking that death toll by increasing awareness of risk factors and access to screening.

It’s amazing what can influence your risk for developing breast cancer. Ethnicity, age, and family health history all can play a role. Younger women, under 45, are more likely to be diagnosed if they are Black, and Black women are the most likely to die of the disease. Asians, Hispanics, and Native Americans are less likely to be diagnosed. Other factors that can influence risk are age, gender, family history, and lifestyle.

Whether you know it or not, it’s almost certain that someone close to you has been touched in some way by this terrible illness. We believe it’s in our power to help reduce the impact of breast cancer as much as it can be. Schedule your Diagnosis for Diagnosis today to help make a difference in someone’s life.
