Vertex is proud to sponsor groups and activities that serve to better the community. For us the community extends beyond our own backyard, we look to help whenever and wherever we are needed most.
Proud Sponsor of Breastcancer.org
Vertex is proud to sponsor Breastcancer.org, an organization committed to offering information and support for individuals battling breast cancer.
A Deep History
Vertex's involvement with this organization began with the pioneering work of Antoinette Westphal. Her husband Ray Westphal founded Vertex Inc. over 30 years ago and Antoinette was the company's first employee.
Antoinette joined Breastcancer.org as a member of the board of directors after facing her own personal battle with this disease. After Antoinette's passing, her daughter Amanda Westphal Radcliffe took on the mantle of her mother's work by filling her board seat at Breastcancer.org and further aiding the efforts of this organization.
As an official sponsor, Vertex hopes to further support Breastcancer.org and assist them in achieving their goal of helping breast cancer sufferers and their loved ones deal with the disease.
