Rahim Hassanally marks World Cancer Day 2020

Cancer awareness advocate Rahim Hassanally marks this year’s annual World Cancer Day.

 

Held each year on February 4, World Cancer Day is a global uniting initiative led by the Union for International Cancer Control. A cancer awareness advocate born and raised in Texas and now living in California, entrepreneur and philanthropist Rahim Hassanally marks this year’s initiative and reveals more about the Union for International Cancer Control’s work. 

 

“By raising global awareness, improving education, and catalyzing personal, collective, and government action, the Union for International Cancer Control is working to create a world where millions of preventable cancer deaths are avoided each year,” explains Hassanally, “and where access to life-saving cancer drugs and treatment is equal for all.” 

 

World Cancer Day 2020’s theme was ‘I Am and I Will’ and centered around individuals and their commitment to act in the fight against cancer. The Union for International Cancer Control believes that through positive actions, such as those promoted by World Cancer Day, together, it’s possible to reach a target of reducing the number of premature cancer and other noncommunicable disease deaths by one third before the end of the decade.

 

Rahim Hassanally marked World Cancer Day 2020 by sharing the initiative’s message with family, friends, colleagues, other associates, and more in the run-up to the annual February 4 event. 

 

A successful entrepreneur based in Solano County, California, Rahim Hassanally is also a proud philanthropist and has raised more than $10,000 for charities such as Susan G. Komen, the largest breast cancer organization in the United States. A particular advocate for breast cancer awareness, Hassanally has spoken at length on topics including National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, new breast cancer drugs showing promise in early trials, and the ongoing work of leading U.S. breast cancer charities. 

 

Philanthropist Rahim Hassanally has also raised much-needed funds and offered his support to numerous charities in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. These include various homeless shelters and his local air force base. Elsewhere, Hassanally has generously supported those affected by recent devastating wildfires in California, and by typhoons and similar natural disasters in other places around the world. 

 

Turning the focus back to World Cancer Day, Hassanally goes on to explain more about the annual initiative. “Created in 2000, World Cancer Day has developed into a truly positive movement for everyone, everywhere,” says the entrepreneur, “to unite together, under one voice, in order to face one of the greatest human challenges in history.”

 

“If we’re to create a future without cancer, the time to act,” he adds, wrapping up, “is now.”

Rahim Hassanally shares latest from leading cancer charity

Entrepreneur and philanthropist Rahim Hassanally shares the latest news from leading breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen.

 

A renowned entrepreneur, philanthropist, and breast cancer awareness advocate based in California, Rahim Hassanally has raised more than $10,000 for the Sacramento Valley chapter of Susan G. Komen in recent years. As the wider organization continues to address breast cancer on multiple fronts, including research, community health, and global outreach in order to make the biggest impact possible on the disease, Hassanally shares the latest news from the charity, founded and headquartered in Dallas, Texas.

 

“Last month, Susan G. Komen commended the results of a clinical trial on circulating tumor DNA in triple-negative breast cancer patients,” explains Hassanally. The results, he says, provide a fantastic insight into the recurrence and treatment of the disease. 

 

“Led by Susan G. Komen scholar Dr. Bryan Schneider, the clinical trial moves the medical world closer to predicting the recurrence of triple-negative breast cancer and informing treatment of the disease,” adds breast cancer awareness advocate Hassanally. 

 

The results of the trial were presented at last month’s San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. The trial, according to Hassanally, was conducted by Dr. Bryan Schneider and his colleagues at more than 25 sites involved in looking at circulating tumor cells and DNA. “Dr. Schneider and colleagues conducted their trial at over 25 sites that looked at circulating tumor cells and circulating DNA in patients’ blood,” he explains, “to determine their effectiveness in predicting recurrence, and the prognosis for patients diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer.”

 

Triple-negative breast cancer, Rahim Hassanally says, currently has limited treatment options, and, thus, a poor prognosis for patients. The results of the recent DNA trial, however, breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen has revealed, showed that breast cancer recurrence could be predicted for these patients, and demonstrated that physicians may be able to use this information in the future to identify those who are at the highest risk. “Through this approach,” said Dr. Schneider at the 2019 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium last month, “researchers can also identify patients who have an incredibly good prognosis leading to the potential for future studies focused on novel de-escalation approaches for some triple-negative breast cancer patients.”

 

Following the DNA study, a second associated clinical trial, this time to refine how liquid biopsy can inform treatment for triple-negative breast cancer patients, is now planned, according to Susan G. Komen supporter Rahim Hassanally. The potential for patients to know more about their risk, he says, as well as options for treatment, all from a simple blood test, is extraordinary. “I look forward to the results of the next trial,” adds the cancer awareness advocate, wrapping up, “and to new treatment options for triple-negative breast cancer patients as physicians become better equipped than ever to guide precision medicine in the breast cancer care field.”

Rahim Hassanally Wraps Up 2019 and Revisits the Year’s Highlights

From philanthropy and charity work to promoting entrepreneurial spirit in business, Rahim Hassanally wraps up 2019 and looks forward to 2020.

From his charity work and philanthropy to promoting cancer awareness, entrepreneurial spirit in business, and reflecting on life in the fast lane, Rahim Hassanally has spoken at length this year about topics close to his heart, including support for local homeless shelters and raising more than $10,000 for a leading breast cancer charity. Here, Hassanally wraps up the events of 2019 and looks forward to the New Year.

Earlier this year, Rahim Hassanally reflected on the celebration of diversity at the Urban Wheel Awards while also looking back on his past typhoon aid efforts and New Motor Vehicle Board appointment. Hassanally also celebrated a decade of National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers membership, and shared an insight into the benefits of National Automobile Dealers Association Dealer Academy participation.

During 2019, Texas native and California-based entrepreneur Hassanally has also offered a closer look at his philanthropy and charity work on a number of occasions. This includes providing support for those affected by recent California wildfires. “In addition to raising and donating much-needed funds to aid and rescue efforts here in California, I further researched and donated a large volume of vital supplies to the community during and in the wake of the fires,” said the humble local entrepreneur earlier this year.

In June, Rahim Hassanally revealed his continued support for local homeless shelters and promoted the ongoing work of leading U.S. cancer charities. Hassanally is a keen advocate for cancer awareness and has previously raised more than $10,000 for a leading breast cancer charity.

Elsewhere, Hassanally spoke openly and at length about the importance of entrepreneurial spirit in business and explored growing rates of entrepreneurship across the United States. Then, marking the start of his second decade with the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers, in August, Hassanally subsequently shared a brief history of the organization, established in 1980 and presided over by Damon Lester since 2002.

Later in the year, Hassanally revisited his disaster relief contributions and counted down to worldwide breast cancer awareness initiative National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, held annually in October. Reflecting on life in the fast lane, Rahim Hassanally also demonstrated what it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur before looking toward hotly anticipated new motors for 2020.

Wrapping up November, Hassanally showcased a series of glowing all-new professional recommendations before highlighting numerous upcoming cancer awareness initiatives.

Earlier this month, meanwhile, the entrepreneur and cancer awareness advocate shined a spotlight on two new breast cancer drugs showing promise in early trials. “In light of new cancer drugs such as trastuzumab deruxtecan and tucatinib showing promise, it’s as important as ever,” he said at the time, wrapping up, “that we continue to invest in revolutionary cancer research if we’re to beat the disease once and for all.”

Based in Fairfield, California, Rahim Hassanally is a graduate of Southern Methodist University, a private Methodist research university in University Park, Texas. Born and raised in Texas before relocating to the so-called Golden State to pursue his entrepreneurial endeavors, Hassanally is a keen advocate for cancer awareness, particularly surrounding the importance of breast cancer screening and early detection.

Rahim Hassanally Highlights Current Cancer Awareness Initiatives

Cancer awareness advocate Rahim Hassanally highlights this month’s ongoing awareness initiatives

With November marking Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and Lung Cancer Awareness Month in the United States, entrepreneur and cancer awareness advocate Rahim Hassanally takes a closer look at the currently ongoing initiatives led by the Lung Cancer Foundation of America and the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research.

“November in the U.S. marks both Lung Cancer Awareness Month and Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month,” explains Hassanally, a successful entrepreneur, philanthropist, and cancer awareness advocate based in California.

Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month celebrates survivors of the disease and honors loved ones who have fought and lost their lives to pancreatic cancer. “It’s also a unique opportunity to raise awareness,” says Rahim Hassanally, “and to educate the public, raise money for research, and assure patients that the fight against pancreatic cancer is ongoing.”

The initiative is led by the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, which strives to guide and embrace pancreatic cancer patients, support family members, and fund the foremost cutting-edge research into yielding results and turning the tide on the disease.

“Also marked in November each year is Lung Cancer Awareness Month,” Hassanally continues. Organized and led by the Lung Cancer Foundation of America, Lung Cancer Awareness Month, according to the entrepreneur and cancer awareness advocate, represents an opportunity to honor personal lung cancer journeys, pay tribute to loved ones, and, again, to raise funds and awareness for lung cancer research.

“Every cent earned on behalf of the Lung Cancer Foundation of America is donated to lung cancer research,” reveals Hassanally, “and this month is the perfect time to set about raising awareness and funds for the organization.”

Rahim Hassanally has also previously spoken out in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, held each year during the month of October.

Hassanally is a particular advocate for breast cancer awareness and has raised in excess of $10,000 for local breast cancer charities. “My colleagues and I successfully raised over $10,000 for the Sacramento Valley chapter of leading breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen,” he reveals, “the story behind which was covered at the time by Solano County’s Daily Republic.”

The entrepreneur and philanthropist is also a supporter of a number of other local, national, and international charities and good causes, and has further generously donated to a wide range of aid programs and disaster relief efforts both at home and overseas.

Rahim Hassanally Revisits Support for Those Affected by Devastating Local Wildfires

Local entrepreneur Rahim Hassanally looks back on his support for those affected by the devastating 2018 California wildfires.

An award-winning businessman and successful automotive industry entrepreneur, Rahim Hassanally is also a dedicated philanthropist, routinely supporting a wide variety of local, national, and international charities, aid and relief efforts, and other good causes. Here, entrepreneur and philanthropist Hassanally looks back on the impact of last year’s devastating California wildfires.

“During last year’s wildfires, more than 8,500 separate fires destroyed an area covering more than 1.8 million acres in total,” reveals Hassanally, who’s originally from Texas but currently based in California. Costs including damage caused by and tied to the 2018 California wildfires, he says, have gone on to top well over $3.5 billion.

Hassanally recalls that, at the time, and as the fires worsened, he was quick to lend his support wherever possible. The businessman donated generously to rescue and aid efforts, both financially, and in terms of giving an abundance of vital supplies to the community during the disaster.

Philanthropist and businessman Hassanally says that it’s vitally important that, in the aftermath of such disasters, associated risk factors, in this case, of wildfires, are both appreciated and understood. “When these disasters do happen, however,” he adds, “we must, as a nation, pledge as much support as we can to relief and aid efforts, and as quickly as possible.”

Elsewhere, Hassanally has also contributed toward other local, national, and international disaster relief efforts, including in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the Philippines several years ago. “After seeing the devastation caused, I remember thinking to myself, ‘We must take action,'” he recalls.

Rahim Hassanally and colleagues quickly rallied together, raising several thousand dollars in a little over two weeks, all of which was promptly donated to the appropriate aid agencies and disaster relief organizations in the Philippines.

“Closer to home, I’m also a keen supporter of my local air force base,” adds Hassanally, wrapping up, “as well as various homeless shelters, including the Solano Mission.”

Rahim Hassanally is a Governor of California appointed Department of Motor Vehicles New Motor Vehicle Board member, a member of the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers, and a board member of the American International Automobile Dealers Association.

Rahim Hassanally Demonstrates What it Takes to Succeed as an Entrepreneur

Entrepreneur and philanthropist Rahim Hassanally provides a closer look at his professional success. 

 

A leading and award-winning automotive industry entrepreneur and philanthropist originally from Texas and now based in California, Rahim Hassanally reflects on his success as he looks back on more than two decades in business. 

 

Rahim Hassanally began his entrepreneurial journey at a young age. Turning down an invitation to attend a prestigious law school, the businessman had already established and built up his own highly successful automotive dealership well before reaching 30. 

 

Today, and following more than two decades in business, Hassanally has not only succeeded in living his entrepreneurial dream, but has raised tens of thousands of dollars for charities and other good causes in the process. A keen advocate for breast cancer awareness, Rahim Hassanally has raised more than $10,000 for Susan G. Komen Northern & Central California as well as supporting both overseas aid efforts and local good causes alike, including homeless shelters in his area, and giving generously in the wake of last year’s devastating California wildfires. Here, and in addition to donating much-needed funds, he also further donated an abundance of vital supplies to the community during the fires. 

 

“My family has a strong hospitality industry background, but I knew at a very young age that it simply wasn’t my cup of tea,” Hassanally explains, turning the focus away from his philanthropy and back to business. The entrepreneur got his first taste of the automotive industry at just 16 years old. “I quickly made a name for myself in the new car sales field,” he reveals. 

 

Soon selling up to 30 vehicles a month in his part-time capacity as a new car salesman, Rahim Hassanally was very quickly ready to begin pursuing his dream of owning his own automotive dealership and succeeding as an entrepreneur. “By the time I was 28 years old, I’d bought my very own dealership,” reveals the businessman. 

 

It was the first of many for Rahim, who, over the next few years, went on to grow his own automotive industry empire. Hassanally places much of his success on a combination of entrepreneurial spirit and hard work. 

 

“I believe a number of key characteristics are essential for success, including a high level of business-mindedness, a strong entrepreneurial spirit, and plenty of hard work,” suggests the California-based businessman. Optimism, passion, self-belief, and a readiness to take calculated risks are also important, according to the expert. 

 

“Personally, I’ve always been extremely driven,” he adds, wrapping up, “and, once I’ve set my mind to something, I simply won’t give up until I’ve achieved my goal.”

Rahim Hassanally Shares Important National Breast Cancer Awareness Month Main Takeaways

As this year’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month draws to a close, philanthropist Rahim Hassanally highlights important takeaways outlined by the annual initiative.

 

With the month-long annual awareness initiative now drawing to a close, entrepreneur and philanthropist Rahim Hassanally, a Texas native currently based in California, reveals three important takeaways from National Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2019. 

 

“As National Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2019 draws to a close, three of the biggest takeaways from this year’s awareness initiative center around reducing risk, knowing symptoms, and keeping up with regular screenings,” explains Hassanally, an award-winning entrepreneur and a keen proponent of breast cancer awareness. 

 

All three points, he says, are staples of both past and present awareness initiatives, both for breast cancer and other forms of the disease. “They cannot, however, be reiterated enough,” explains Hassanally, “and what better time than when a large nationwide and international awareness campaign such as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the U.S. and Breast Cancer Awareness Month elsewhere around the world is wrapping up for another year.” 

 

Hassanally first points toward reducing risk. “While risk factors such as genetics and age can’t be avoided, measures to lower the risk of breast cancer can be taken, such as—and mainly—by staying healthy,” he suggests. 

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Hassanally goes on to explain, recommend doing so by maintaining a healthy weight, aided by exercising regularly. “Exercising regularly, in itself, also comes with many added health benefits,” he further points out. The CDC also recommends limiting alcohol intake and, where appropriate, discussing the possible risks tied to certain contraceptives and hormone replacement therapies with a qualified medical professional. 

 

“It’s also important to know, in detail, the full range of symptoms of breast cancer,” adds Hassanally. Beyond abnormal lumps or masses which routine awareness campaigns educate the public to check for regularly, it’s also important, he says, to be similarly vigilant surrounding other abnormalities. “These,” Hassanally explains, “can include swelling and redness, pain, discharge, and a change in the appearance of the skin of the breast.” 

 

While these may not prove to be indicative of breast cancer, Rahim Hassanally says it’s important to be sure. “See a doctor if there’s any doubt,” advises the entrepreneur and breast cancer awareness advocate. 

 

Lastly, Hassanally reiterates the importance of regular cancer screenings. “Many breast cancer cases develop with no outward symptoms at all, which is why regular screening remains so important,” he adds, wrapping up. 

 

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2019 concludes on Thursday, October 31, 2019.

 

Rahim Hassanally is a Governor of California appointed Department of Motor Vehicles New Motor Vehicle Board member, a member of the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers, and a board member of the American International Automobile Dealers Association. An accomplished sportsman, a keen advocate for breast cancer awareness, and a supporter of a wide variety of nonprofit organizations, charities, and other good causes, Texas native Hassanally’s professional accolades include making the Automotive News ‘Top 40 Under 40’ list and receiving recognition as the 18th annual Urban Wheel Awards ‘Urban Dealer of the Year.’

Rahim Hassanally Outlines Latest NADA Academy Programs

Automotive industry entrepreneur and NADA Academy graduate Rahim Hassanally outlines the scheme’s latest programs.

An award-winning automotive industry entrepreneur originally from Texas and currently based in California, Rahim Hassanally‘s years of industry success have included recognition by the annual Urban Wheel Awards and Automotive News’ national, industry-wide ‘Top 40 Under 40’ list. Graduating from NADA Education’s NADA Academy over a decade ago, Hassanally provides an inside look at the program’s current offering.

“NADA Academy programs prepare current and future automotive dealership leaders to improve profitability across all departments,” explains Hassanally, himself a NADA Academy graduate, “while also exploring how new technology and the latest industry innovations are continually reshaping the sector.”

NADA Academy programs extend to six one-week classroom sessions taken over the course of a year. “The sessions, which are held at NADA headquarters in Tysons, Virginia, are then paired with hands-on practical experience across each area of dealership life,” adds Hassanally, who graduated from the scheme in 2006.

The NADA Academy, he says, promises to teach participants in just 12 months what may otherwise take a decade or more to learn in the field. “Elsewhere, seminar and certificate programs allow dealership managers to attend individual weeks of the scheme to hone particular skills specific to their requirements,” reveals Hassanally.

The latest NADA Academy programs include financial management, fixed operations, variable operations, and business leadership. “The six one-week classroom sessions begin with financial management and conclude with business leadership,” Hassanally explains. Weeks two, three, four, and five, meanwhile, he says, cover parts, servicing, pre-owned vehicle sales, and new vehicle sales, respectively.

“Also on offer are ATD Academy programs,” adds Hassanally, wrapping up, “which are specifically for current and future operators of the nation’s truck dealerships.”

Rahim Hassanally Reflects On Life In The Fast Lane

Entrepreneur Rahim Hassanally looks back on personal and professional highlights following more than 20 years in business.

From an invitation to law school to establishing a highly successful automotive dealership while still in his 20s, Rahim Hassanally has now enjoyed more than two decades of success in business, raising tens of thousands of dollars for good causes, such as breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen, in the process. Hassanally looks back on his life in the fast lane.

Growing up, Texas native Hassanally’s family had already established themselves in the thriving Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex hospitality industry. With his parents owning a number of popular hotels in the area, you could be forgiven for assuming that Rahim, too, made his name and fortune in hospitality, but you’d be mistaken. “Getting into the hotel business would’ve been easy for me,” he explains, “but at a very young age, I figured out that it simply wasn’t my cup of tea.”

Instead, aged just 16, Hassanally eagerly accepted an opportunity to embrace a work-study program run by his local high school. “I was able to work and earn money while also completing my studies,” he reveals.

It was in his first job—and the same job facilitated by his high school’s work-study program—that a young Rahim Hassanally would find his feet in the industry in which he would quickly go on to make a name for himself. That industry? “New car sales,” says Hassanally.

Studying each morning until midday before reprising his daily role as a salesman at a local dealership during the afternoons, within two months, Hassanally had exceeded all expectations.

Not only was he excelling in his classroom studies, but the aspiring entrepreneur was selling as many as 30 vehicles a month in his part-time capacity as a new car salesman. “Coaching from a mentor who also worked at the dealership certainly helped!” admits Hassanally.

Fast-forward several years and the high school sophomore had gone on to graduate from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, with a bachelor’s degree in political science while also working at three different dealerships in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

It was around this time that Hassanally made the decision to opt out of an invitation into law school in order to pursue his passion for automotive retailing; something at which he had now very much come to learn that he enjoyed a serious natural talent for.

“By the time I was 24 years old, I’d risen to general sales manager at my current workplace,” reveals Hassanally, “and, less than four years later, I bought my very own dealership.”

It would be the first of many for Rahim Hassanally who, over the next ten years, would go on to establish himself as one of the automotive industry’s leading players, truly living life in the fast lane.

“Looking back, I’ve always been extremely driven,” he adds, wrapping up, “and when I set my mind to something, I won’t give up until I’ve achieved it.”
