Donations, Education, and People-Power Mark MassMutual Breast Cancer Awareness Month Efforts
Date:10/16/2008

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- With a combination of charitable contributions, innovative education and personal involvement that has become its hallmark, Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual) and its agents nationwide are once again rallying to the cause of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The company and its agents are expected to contribute tens of thousands of dollars to cancer research, prevention and treatment organizations throughout the country as part of its Breast Cancer Awareness Month education seminar campaign. For each MassMutual agency that conducts a Pearls of Wisdom(R) financial education seminar in their local communities in October, MassMutual will contribute up to $5,000 to local cancer organizations. Last year's effort raised more than $80,000 for organizations in 25 states while educating more than 1,500 women.

Additionally, recognizing that many women are underinsured, MassMutual is making available two educational brochures to help raise awareness and begin important conversations:

-- a new Family Risk Discussion Guide to help families discuss the sensitive issue of life insurance, available at http://www.massmutual.com/mmfg/pdf/discussionguide.pdf.

-- and an important brochure that dispels the mistaken belief of many women that a history of breast cancer will prevent them from obtaining insurance coverage. In fact, it is now easier for breast cancer survivors to qualify for MassMutual life insurance coverage -- and many will pay less for it -- because MassMutual regularly reviews its life underwriting guidelines to keep pace with favorable diagnostic and treatment developments.

The company's charitable and educational efforts are fueled by the power of its people, for whom the efforts to raise awareness of the disease hit close to home.
