LSM Alum, Co-workers Raise Awareness & Funds For Those Battling Breast Cancer

Barry Friedman, LSM '09, and his co-workers at Primary Residential Mortgage Inc. kicked off a 'This One's For The Girls' initiative to raise awareness and donations to support the battle against breast cancer back in October. The team used their company Facebook page to raise funds and support The Red Devils, Inc., an organization which helps improve the quality of life for families experience the hardships of this health crisis right here in Southern Maryland.

This latest local, charitable endeavor is among many the PRMI staff have undertaken which result in a direct and tremendous impact, as well as drawing interest to the Red Devils organization and their partnership with MedStar St. Mary's and Calvert Memorial hospitals.

Check out the article and touching comment from one beneficiary, courtesy of, by clicking HERE and visit the PRMI team's Facebook page HERE to see what other good works they are doing within the community.

Kudos, Barry and crew!
