Advantage Chevrolet decided to help in the fight against breast cancer by hosting an annual event, Pretty in Pink. All of the proceeds from the event went to the American Cancer Society, according to La Grange Suburban Life.
There were more than 300 people who joined the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event, and they raised more than $34,000. They are hoping to do the same next year, as breast cancer awareness
is something quite personal for the owner of the company.
"Advantage Chevrolet's owner Desmond Roberts considers the fight against cancer to be a very personal one - he lost his father to cancer at a young age," Jason Roberts, manager of sales at Advantage Chevrolet, told the news source.
According to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, it is recommended that once a woman turns 40 she should schedule annual mammograms. Those who have an extensive family history of breast cancer may want to make these appointments a little earlier, as a genetic disposition is known for being a risk factor of the disease.
