Hans Kaemmlein, president and CEO of DeskCenter USA is proud to partner with a woman owned company inspired for Cancer research. “I believe the involvement of small businesses and women owned companies are some of the strengths to which this country is built on and supporting these companies not only provides cancer research an edge to give “people a fighting chance”, but is truly a cornerstone of rebuilding our economy.”
“As I see it; it is a win-win situation,” continues Kaemmlein. “Supporting cancer research in any way, even volunteering your time, will make the difference in someone’s chance to live.”
DeskCenter USA Inc. is also participating in the cause by donating part of their proceeds for all deals closed during October of 2012 (10% of net sales).

2013 Calendars and Framed Prints Support Breast and Ovarian Cancer Research
October 5, 2012,– Long Beach, NY, Maureenc.com, (www.maureenc.com)
Every year, maureenc.com owner and artist Maureen Cronin creates artwork with inspired thoughts for every month of the coming year, plus a bonus month. (Each year one of her nieces or nephews selects a month to paint as well.) She donates 20% of the proceeds from every sale to support breast and ovarian cancer research, a tribute to her best friend, Suzan Conk, who died of breast cancer in 1999, and in honor of another friend, who survived ovarian cancer.
“I believe we are all connected, but that connection sometimes needs a boost and awareness,” says Cronin. “If we can connect on an emotional level, the battle is won.” Cronin also believes that bringing people together through awareness and contributions save lives and eventually will contribute to winning the war on these cancers. “I want my artwork to make people feel something good and be a reminder that we need to help each other, whether it’s a framed print, the year’s calendar or to just volunteer your time”.
Her artisan skills combined with her sincere commitment to support Breast and Ovarian cancer make this a very unique woman owned company a part of the solution.
Proprietor Maureen Cronin was born and raised in Rockville Centre, NY. Maureenc.com is based in Long Beach, NY. Artwork is sold on the company website, www.maureenc.com. Calendars are $15 each and the framed prints are $20. Funny, touching and inspiring sayings dot the original artwork, all by Cronin, and include bon mots such as “Happily ever after needs everyday practice” and “There’s nothing better for an old story than a new person” and “Every rose…has to go through layers of dirt and muck to blossom and be glorious.” She dedicates the month of March with “something Irish” in honor of her father, who passed in 2010.
“The framed prints are usually are a big hit because they make such unique gifts, and the more I sell, the more I can give the more I can give to research,” adds Cronin. You can visit her facebook page for artwork previews and new items such as t-shirts and mugs. Miss Cronin takes pride in the fact that her gifts keeps on giving through her contributions.

Maureenc.com was established in 2003 as a means of providing research monies to support breast cancer research. After losing her good friend to breast cancer, Maureen Cronin wrote a novel, Go Faster Go: Memoir of a Friend based on her experience, their journey together as friends, and life lessons learned along the way. Maureen and friend Suzan Conk began painting together through one of the programs at Sloan Kettering while Suzan was being treated, and it ignited a long time passion of Cronin’s. Since then, she has created artwork in the form of greeting cards, framed prints, and an annual calendar. The website, www.maureenc.com was established in 2008 to house all the artwork. Maureenc.com has since expanded to include a donation to ovarian cancer research after reconnecting with a college friend who was 4 years clear of ovarian cancer. 20% of all proceeds are diverted to breast and ovarian cancer research.
