Delivering to Those in Need

October 27, 2009

It’s no secret that in these times, more families are facing financial struggles. As the unemployment rates soar more of our friends and neighbors are in need of help to get through the difficult times. Not every family has a kitchen stocked with food, and some people have already laid their plan for the month where every dime will go. In these times, giving back is more important than ever before.

The people at Reliable Delivery have come together to have a Thanksgiving Food Drive. All of our Michigan delivery and Ohio delivery offices will be utilized as drop-off locations. We are reaching out to our friends, vendors and customers to assist us in collecting food for families in need, because no one should have to go hungry.

OCTOBER IS NATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

October 1, 2009

“Please have a seat.  The doctor will be in to discuss your test results shortly.”  Almost all of us have someone we care about who has faced those fearful moments before receiving a good, or sometimes, a bad report.  This was my year to have a loved one face the bad news.

She is one of the more than 200,000 women in America that are diagnosed with breast cancer every year.  Over 40,000 will lose their fight.  Happily, with improved treatment and early diagnosis, those numbers are decreasing. 

calendarReliable Delivery is proud to be part of the fight against Breast Cancer.  Every October, our medical couriers hand out annual planners filled with wellness tips designed to educate and encourage women to make lifestyle changes or remind them to schedule recommended health screenings.  For example, women in their 20’s and 30’s should be screened for Breast Cancer every three years, and annually after age 40.  Those who are at risk or have a family history of Breast Cancer should be screened more often.

I mentioned that I have a loved one fighting Breast Cancer.  I know how critical accurate lab results are for my family member.   As Michigan Couriers, it is our mission to transport every specimen and every medical delivery as if someone’s life depended on it.  And many times, it does.

Please encourage the women in your life to take charge of their own health and remind everyone to support the fight for a cure!  If you have been involved in any activities to support the cure for Breast Cancer, we would love to hear about it.
