Ansell Healthcare's Commitment to End Breast Cancer Goes Beyond October

ISELIN, NEW JERSEY--(Marketwire - Nov. 27, 2012) - As breast cancer awareness month ends, Ansell Healthcare Products is proud to remind healthcare professionals of its continued commitment to end breast cancer. The company will donate $2 per case of its Micro-Touch® NitraFree pink nitrile exam gloves sold to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. The company guarantees a minimum $25,000 donation.

"Our commitment to Susan G. Komen reflects our commitment to healthcare professionals around the world," said Bob Gaither, Sr. VP and Regional Director, Ansell North America. "As the global leader in protection solutions, we have a critical role to play in increasing awareness of this disease and working with others to find the cures."

In 2008, Ansell was the first major glove manufacturer to support breast cancer research and outreach with a specifically designed cause-related pink nitrile exam glove. Because of Ansell's generosity, along with other partners, Komen was able to invest an additional $47 million in 2011 in discovering and delivering the cures for breast cancer to millions of people.

The Micro-Touch® NitraFree pink nitrile exam gloves are sold throughout North America through Ansell Medical sales representatives or approved distributors. For more information, visit www.ansellhealthcare.com/powerofpink.
