FORT MYERS, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- NeoGenomics, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEO), a leading oncology testing services company, today announced that the Company has signed the Working with Cancer Pledge. By taking the pledge, NeoGenomics demonstrates its commitment to supporting team members living with or caring for a loved one with cancer. Additionally, the company aims to open the conversation around cancer in the workplace and ensure our employees are aware of the resources available to them.
