Promoting Breast Cancer Awareness in Hayward

Of the more than 175,000 new cases of cancer expected to be diagnosed in California this year, nearly 30,000 will be breast cancer. This is especially troubling for our community because the incidence of breast cancer in Hayward is significantly higher than the state average.

Carlson & Associates Insurance Agency is leading a campaign to help improve the life quality of breast cancer patients and promote cancer awareness in the Alameda County area.


Supporting Women At Risk for Breast Cancer

As East Bay Regional Ambassadors in the #AgentsofChange movement, the Carlson & Associates Insurance team is committed to safeguarding the health of families in our community. During this campaign, we will be supporting efforts to provide mentoring, counseling, and emotional support for affected families, assisting in efforts to promote and provide breast cancer screening services, and channeling resources toward research into cutting-edge breast cancer treatments.

There are thousands of women in our area at risk of breast cancer, and we can’t reach them alone. We need your help.


Join Our Team!

Being a part of this campaign is as easy as inviting your friends and loved ones into their nearest Carlson & Associates office for a free insurance consultation. While they’re here, we can offer them details on our campaign to promote breast cancer awareness. For each person you invite, we will send out a contribution IN YOUR NAME to a local breast cancer program that works to provide information or services to our community.


Help Us Make a Positive Difference

This campaign gives you the chance to help make a positive difference in the lives of thousands of women in our community who have breast cancer or who are at risk. Please join us, and let’s reach out to as many as we can.
