    • Hu-Friedy and the Breast Cancer Network of Strength (formerly Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization™), a Chicago-based national nonprofit organization with the mission to ensure, through information, empowerment and peer support, that no one faces breast cancer alone, formed a special bond in the fall of 2006 when Hu-Friedy created a special periodontal promotion, "Inspired by You", focused directly toward dental professionals.
  • 4. Pink Ribbon Instruments
    • Hu-Friedy has made supporting its customers and the fight against breast cancer a huge priority.
    • In 2006, Hu-Friedy created a special promotion, “Inspired by You”, focused directly toward hygienists.

  • 5. Network of Strength
    • The promotion was a huge success and Hu-Friedy found an open door to directly touch our customers, and to continually seek out further ways to help in the fight against breast cancer
