A Mass donation

MassMutual donates to cancer research
The Ennis Relay for Life/American Cancer Society will receive $1,000 as part of an innovative National Breast Cancer Awareness Month program from Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual) in the name of Gary Hayden and Brenda Mahon of Hayden Financial Partners.
“I’m delighted that local women struggling with breast cancer and the agencies that serve them will benefit from our donation and commitment to the cause,” Hayden said. “We look forward to continuing our support of organizations that provide information and hope to women with breast cancer.”
Gary Hayden and Brenda Mahon recently conducted an informative financial seminar geared toward women titled “Pearls of Wisdom.”
Hayden’s efforts are part of a MassMutual program that makes charitable contributions to local breast cancer awareness programs in the names of its local agents who work extensively with women’s groups and women clients. Under the program, MassMutual uses its educational financial seminars for women to also raise awareness of breast cancer.
“We’re very heartened to know that we’re playing a role in educating women about not only their finances, but also their health,” said Beth Wood, vice president of MassMutual’s Women’s Markets. “And we’re especially appreciative of Gary and Brenda’s efforts in such an important cause.”
Hayden said Ennis Regional Medical Center and ERMC CEO Dave Anderson were also a big help by co-sponsoring the “Pearls of Wisdom” seminar.
MassMutual’s breast cancer awareness initiative is one of many ways it supports women personally, professionally and as business owners. For example, MassMutual continues to be a leader in providing life insurance coverage for breast cancer survivors, updating its underwriting guidelines to reflect the positive long-term survival benefits of early detection and new treatments.
Additionally, MassMutual is recognized as a leader in efforts to improve understanding of women’s diverse financial needs, to support women agents in the field and to educate women on financial issues. MassMutual sponsors a variety of research and educational projects and events that promote a greater understanding of women’s individual financial needs and how financial services companies can best meet them.
MassMutual’s commitment also includes its sponsorship this past summer in eight U.S. cities of the Danskin Women’s Triathlon series, which donates 10 percent of all entry fees to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. In conjunction with that sponsorship, MassMutual donated several thousand dollars to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation on behalf of the triathlon participants who attended MassMutual’s seminar, “Pearls of Wisdom.”
