In support of breast cancer research, detection and treatment programs, Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co. and its agents have raised more than $100,000.

Using financial education programs called Pearls of Wisdom as the platform, company agents dispensed financial knowledge to consumers while MassMutual made contributions for each seminar conducted in October – Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The final tally came to $111,420, money that will go to local chapters of the American Cancer Society, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and other charities.

“Giving back to the communities that we work and live in has always been a hallmark of MassMutual,” said Rachel Narciso, a financial services professional with a MassMutual general agency and a breast cancer survivor.
