Chicago Personal Injury Law Firms Unite in Honor of Breast Cancer Patients and Families

October 1, 2020

A coalition of leading plaintiff’s law firms in Chicago have come together to show their support of Breast Cancer patients and their families. While this commitment is year-round, the law firms join the call for a cure during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Firms together in this effort are: Cooney & Conway, Clifford Law Offices and Romanucci & Blandin LLC.

Throughout the year, the law firms advocate for Breast Cancer patients whose diagnoses or treatments have not proceeded properly or in a timely manner. The attorneys also seek justice for those whose Breast Cancer has been caused by external or environmental factors including exposure to carcinogenic ethylene oxide (EtO) emitted by Sterigenics in Willowbrook, Illinois. 

These law firms are showing their support in a variety of ways.  Some of the law firms are turning their logos pink for the month of October and drawing attention to the needs of these patients and the urgency to find a cure in a coordinated social media campaign.  Others have programs to volunteer for causes and organizations that support Breast Cancer patients, make charitable contributions or provide informative/educational materials on the rights of Breast Cancer patients to the community.

“Advocating for awareness is one of the most important things we can do as attorneys and fellow members of our community. This collaboration serves to advance women's healthcare, which is something I strongly believe in. Breast Cancer Awareness month is essential to help raise awareness, education, and support women in need,” said Erin Clifford, Partner of Clifford Law Offices.

“As a law firm which represents thousands of people and families who have suffered the ravages of cancer, we are committed to support those diagnosed with Breast Cancer and those who search for a cure. Many in our own families have been touched in some way by breast cancer.  We mourn every loss, and cheer every victory in this battle.  We are proud to work together in this effort, because we know that early detection means more victories,” said Maribeth White, Administrative Director of Cooney & Conway.

“We all have been touched by this devastating disease in many ways. Members of our firms and families have battled through it, and we’ve also fought hard for our clients who have been impacted in a variety of ways. This year our firm secured justice on behalf of a young mother who died after her Breast Cancer was not diagnosed in a timely manner. We dedicate this month in her honor,” said Gina A. DeBoni, Managing Partner of Romanucci & Blandin.
