This is the second October Fras-Air/General Service Experts has painted two of their vans pink to raise funds for this great cause. In 2015, Fras-Air was able to raise over $7,000 for Komen North Jersey. David Schneider, the general manager and one of his employees both lost their mothers to different forms of cancer and were inspired to help other families.
“The National Cancer Institute said that 107,184 women in New Jersey faced breast cancer in 2016,” Schneider explained. “While the quantity of cases is actually decreasing each year, that still leaves a large number of families who are dealing with this disease, and there is still an urgent need for research and support.”
The General Manager of Service Experts of Raleigh, Chris Overton, echoed Schneider’s feelings. “As stated by the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, breast cancer is the most prominent type of cancer in North Carolina – for women and men.”
