PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Sciton, Inc. is pleased to announce a partnership between its Women’s Health Group division and the Young Survival Coalition. The Women’s Health Group, as part of Sciton’s “Because Results Matter” mission and making a difference in the quality of people’s lives, is undertaking a philanthropic initiative to raise awareness about women’s vaginal health, in particular, those who are recovering from breast cancer therapy. One such group are the young women who can be thrust into early onset menopause. The changes and challenges that occur can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to intimacy. Laser vaginal therapy with diVa treats women that have diminished vaginal health by resurfacing and revitalizing tissue without hormones.
The aim of the campaign is to bring awareness about breast cancer. The Project Pink diVa launch starts with manufacturing new bright pink diVa handpieces for new diVa providers. We will also be donating 5% of each diVa module and each Strengthened Quartz Dilator during October and November 2017 to the Young Survival Coalition. Our initial donation goal is $25,000. We extend this initiative to our customers, prospective customers, and patients by giving a portion of their purchase to YSC. “Throughout this past year, we have been honored to receive unsolicited heartfelt stories from cancer survivors who have had diVa vaginal therapy and told us how it changed their lives. A common message was their desire for others to learn about this option for vaginal health. We decided to search out an organization to partner with who shared our mission and whose programs centered on the needs of cancer survivors. We are proud to become a sponsor partner with YSC and support its various cause initiatives including the upcoming bi-coastal Tour de Pink Bike Ride and annual summit in 2018,” says Kathy Ziegler, Product Manager, Women’s Health Group.
Daniel Negus, President of Sciton, emphasizes: “This year, we celebrate 20 years of designing and manufacturing innovative technology that offer real solutions for our customers’ patients. Our company’s mission is based on the foundation of ‘Because Results Matter.’ Sciton continues to focus and drive research and development efforts to products that provide options that serve people in enhancing their health and quality of life. Sciton established the Women’s Health Group division to further these goals in this market space. The partnership with YSC plays an integral role in the company’s philanthropic mission.”
