Siuprem Donates $42,000+ to American Cancer Society
For The Fight Against Breast Cancer
ATLANTA (January 13, 2011) – Siuprem Inc, a full-service independently owned premium finance company, today presented the Atlanta-based American Cancer Society with a check for more than 42,000 for its breast cancer research and programs. The donation of $42,080 came at a presentation ceremony at the company’s Alpharetta offices as part of its Siuprem Cares program.
The donation was based on a contribution of $5 for every commercial premium finance agreement funded by Siuprem from March 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010.
John LaMay, president of Siuprem, said the company chose to support the Society’s fight against breast cancer because the disease affects so many women and their families. He said the company made the decision to contribute to the Society because of its “commitment to eliminate breast cancer as a major health problem throughout the United States.”
“Our Siuprem Cares campaign has been successful due to the support of our customers and partners, said LaMay. “On behalf of them, we are very proud to contribute to the American Cancer Society in an effort to help find a cure for breast cancer. We look forward to continuing our campaign in 2011.”
Randal Redner, the American Cancer Society’s Vice President for Georgia, said, “We are deeply grateful to Siuprem for its generosity. Breast cancer is a devastating disease that strikes more than 200,000 women in the United States every year, including 6,130 women in Georgia. While we are making progress against breast cancer with improved detection and treatment, there is much more work to be done to create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays for more women. The donation from Siuprem will help us make progress toward a cure.”
LaMay pledged that in 2011, Siuprem and its independent insurance agent partners will continue their commitment to breast cancer awareness and research by expanding the timeline of the campaign. With the goal of maximizing future donations to the cause, Siuprem Cares’ commitment of donating $5 of the proceeds of every commercial contract funded will be effective with contracts dated January 1 through December 31, 2011.

As the nation’s largest nongovernmental investor in cancer research, contributing more than $3.4 billion, we turn what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, more than 11 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.
