deView electronics Raises Awareness for Prostate Cancer


deView electronics President Mike Sheehan is raising awareness in the battle against prostate cancer after losing an uncle to the disease recently.

Sheehan announced deView electronics, a Lewisville, Texas-based provider of digital and analog IP technologies for video surveillance, would donate a portion of its annual profits to the National Prostate Cancer Coalition (NPCC). The announcement was made during a business seminar deView sponsored during the 2007 PSA®-TEC conference in St. Charles, Ill.

In addition, Bob Prosen, bestselling author of “Kiss Theory Goodbye” donated three signed books and six months of one-on-one E-mail counseling during his seminar at the conference. Prosen’s charitable offer gave Sheehan the idea to hold an auction.

Bidding started at $18 and quickly escalated to $1,000 for each book and consultation, which deView matched. The winning bidders:  Chuck Lesnewski, president, Pinellas Park, Fla.-based Cam Connections Inc.; J. Matthew Ladd, president, Exton, Pa.-based The Protection Bureau; and Sam Alexander, president, Upper Marlboro, Md.-based Electronic Security Services Inc.

“PSA is a very important customer for us, so it was fitting that we used PSA-TEC to raise funds and awareness for the fight against prostate cancer,” Sheehan says. “Our company had collectively decided to support the National Prostate Cancer Coalition as our charity in January, but waited to make the announcement at PSA®-TEC.”

PSA Vice President of Vendor Technology and Education Jennifer Martin says PSA was thrilled that deView was able to use the conference as a platform for such an important cause.

“I’ve always known our members and vendors are generous, but what deView was able to accomplish at PSA-TEC is incredible and we applaud their efforts to raise awareness for prostate cancer,” she says.

Prostate cancer afflicts one in every six men, according to the NPCC. When caught early, 99 percent of prostate cancer victims survive the disease.

“The bad news is that only about half of all men over 50 get tested,” Sheehan says. “That’s why it’s so important to know your risk and get tested.”
