Arrow Exterminators announces a $300,000 gift to Emory’s Winship Cancer Institute.

| June 14, 2013

ATLANTA – Arrow Exterminators is proud to announce a new research initiative which honors Arrow’s more than 1,200 employees, the “Arrow Head and Neck Cancer Research Fund.”  

“When my husband Hugh was diagnosed with throat cancer, we sought treatment at the Winship Cancer Institute in Atlanta. Hugh is now cancer free and we wanted to find a way to help others have a positive outcome (see Delta ad),” said Emily Thomas Kendrick, president and CEO of Arrow Exterminators. “We believe that there’s only one place in the world a person with throat cancer should go for treatment – Winship at Emory. This gift reflects our passion and commitment to doing everything in our power to positively impact treatment advances for head and neck cancers.”

Kendrick added, “At Arrow, we have eight core values which reflect what are truly important to us as an organization. These are not values that change from time to time, situation to situation or person to person, but rather they are the underpinning of our company culture. One of these core values is ‘Community.’  We give back to and are an integral part of the communities we serve.”  Kendrick now serves on Winship’s advisory board.

The new fund will support the work of radiation oncologist Jonathan Beitler and head and neck surgeon Amy Chen. They are studying methods for prevention, early detection, and treatment of human papilloma virus-associated head and neck cancer. The gift will enhance Winship’s entire head and neck cancer research program.
