Help Us Tread on Cancer!

October 11th, 2016

As you probably know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and CJ's Tire & Automotive wants to Tread on Cancer.

What is Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is a group of cancer cells (malignant tumor) that starts in the cells of the breast. It is the second leading cause of death among women. Everyone is born with some breast  cells and tissues (even men) and have the possibility to develop cancer, though it is rare for men to develop breast cancer.

It is important for women to perform monthly self exams, because early detection is key. Your healthcare professional should also perform a clinical exam yearly. Another form of detection is a mammogram. Women 40 years of age and older should have a mammogram every 1 or 2 years; if you are younger than 40 but have breast cancer risk factors, talk to your healthcare professional.

PA Breast Cancer Coalition

Finding a cure now .. so our daughters won't have to.

At CJ's, we make it our mission to give back to the local communities in which we do business, which is why we fundraise for the PA Breast Cancer Coalition. This ensures that all funds stay in Pennsylvania and help Pennsylvania women with breast cancer and their families. The PBCC is the the source of action and information for women in Pennsylvania with breast cancer. Through their outreach and education programs, their legislative victories, and their vast patient resources, they are "one stop shopping" for both the newly-diagnosed and the long-term survivor. To find out more about their programs and how you can volunteer, click here.

CJ's employees had the opportunity to purchase pink polos and t-shirts to wear during the month of October, which included a donation to the PA Breast Cancer Coalition. Check out Skip Levengood, President, sporting one! Stop by any of CJ's Tire & Automotive's 14 convenient locations for any of your automotive needs, and while you are there, look for a pink polo and help us Tread on Cancer today!
