Cutting Edge Optronics Makes Strides Against Breast Cancer


A team of employees from Cutting Edge Optronics (CEO) in St. Charles, Missouri, united to support lifesaving breast cancer research and support services in the “Making Strides in St. Louis” American Cancer Society event in late October. They raised more than $4,750 for the cause, far surpassing their fundraising goal.

"Too many of my family members have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Fortunately, all have fought and survived but I know that isn’t always the case for others. Participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk allowed me another avenue to help support those directly impacted by cancer, and hopefully make the fight easier for those who are continuing to battle. Getting to support this cause with the Cutting Edge Optronics/ Northrop Grumman team made it even more meaningful."
Kellie Bergschneider, Principal HR Business Partner
A glimpse of the CEO team participating in the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walk, which took place on October 21st in St. Louis, MO.
I participated in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk to continue to help bring awareness to not only breast cancer, but all types of cancer. It is important to support those that have been impacted directly and indirectly from this terrible illness. It is also important to recognize the survivors who were able to fight back against cancer and demonstrate that the impossible is very much possible.
Pat Johnson, Manager Production-Process Operations
Participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk made me feel good, especially since one of my best friends and co-workers is a survivor!! It was a fun day filled with laughter and hugs. Can’t wait to participate again next year! Team CEO/Northrop Grumman Rocks!!

I walk for my mom, my friends and all the people that have or will be diagnosed with cancer. The fight is never over, so standing and walking side by side all these amazing people is a reminder to everyone that they are not alone. Every walk we get closer to a cure, and I will never give up hope! Team CEO will be back next year, and we want to raise the bar and awareness.

Participating in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer was very fulfilling as it is for a very important cause that has impacted most of us in different ways. It was terrific to see the employees of Cutting Edge Optronics demonstrate once again their commitment to each other, family, friends and community for such a meaningful cause in line with Northrop Grumman’s outstanding support. Go Team CEO!
