TEMECULA, Calif. (September 13, 2016) – In the U.S., 15,780 children under the age of 21 are diagnosed with cancer every year with a quarter of those children unable to overcome the disease. Recognizing Childhood Cancer Awareness Month this September, SCRUBBLADE, innovator of the most effective windshield wiper design, announced a long-term partnership with National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF) with a dedication to do its part in fighting childhood cancer. Including a new NPCF logo addition to its packaging, SCRUBBLADE is committing to team together with the nonprofit for the long haul, donating a percentage of proceeds from every wiper blade sold.
“A majority of cancer research focuses on adult treatments and is done within the walls of individual institutions. At NPCF, we fund clinical trials and collaborate with a network of cutting-edge hospitals across the nation to fast track less-toxic, more targeted treatments – all to increase the survival rate of children battling cancer,” said David Frazer, CEO of NPCF. “For 25 years and counting, our nonprofit has been the one shining light for children who are fighting cancer, and we couldn’t be more thankful that SCRUBBLADE has joined us in this fight. We have donated millions of dollars to research and our clinical trials are yielding amazing discoveries that are saving many children’s lives. Now every person who buys a SCRUBBLADE wiper gets to play a part in this amazing journey.”
“As a father myself, my heart goes out to the children and families going through the process of fighting childhood cancer and we want to do everything we can to find a solution to this devastating disease. Joining forces with NPCF is something our team has wanted to do for a while and we are so thrilled it is finally coming to fruition,” said Billy Westbrook, founder of SCRUBBLADE. “This month and in the months ahead, we want to remember the young lives taken far too soon, stand with NPCF to fight with the families facing pediatric cancer today and dedicate our efforts in helping find a cure.”
Since inception, SCRUBBLADE has been committed to innovating design to ensure the cleanest, clearest wipe and keeping its customers safe. Today, a new commitment has developed to fund critical research, support the families of those affected and eliminate childhood cancer altogether.
