At Scorpion, many of our employees have experienced the devastating impact of cancer firsthand, including Internet Marketing Manager Spencer Lincoln, whose mother passed away from breast cancer in 2014.
It is in her memory that Spencer—one of Scorpion’s March Employees of the Month (EoM)—has chosen to support the American Cancer Society.
As one of the March Employees of the Month (EoM), Spencer was asked to select a nonprofit organization that Scorpion could donate to on his behalf. And given that more than 600,000 Americans will die from cancer and an estimated 1.7 million new cases will be diagnosed this year alone, few organizations are as worthy as the American Cancer Society.
“My mother was involved with this organization, so I’m happy to have the opportunity to extend the donation in her memory and for the countless families who are continuing their heroic fight against cancer each and every day,” Spencer said.
For more than a century, the American Cancer Society has been working to end cancer through research programs, patient services, and community initiatives.
Here’s a glimpse of what the American Cancer Society has accomplished since its inception in 1913:
$4.6 billion invested in cancer research since 1946
6.3 million free rides to treatment for cancer patients
781,000 screenings contributed to in underserved communities since 2011
2.1 million cancer deaths averted since 1991

At Scorpion, we’re honored to partner with our employees in supporting charitable organizations that change the world for the better. The EoM donations are made possible through Scorpion Cares, the charitable giving division of Scorpion.
