Breast Cancer Awareness & Prevention Month

  

Every year the  Tom Bush Family of Dealerships participates in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk - and we want to ask you to please support us with a donation.

Thanks in part to the American Cancer Society, and people like you who made a donation and supported the cause, breast cancer death rates have dropped over the last 20 years. In fact, women are 34 percent less likely to die from breast cancer today than they were in 1989. Last year the Making Strides walks brought together 800,000 people who raised $68 million.

Because those funds were available, more people in our community...

  • Have the information and tools they need to stay well from breast cancer or find the disease early, when it's easiest to treat.
  • Have a place to turn for help 24/7 if they are facing breast cancer.
  • Benefit from the progress being made toward finding breast cancer's causes and cures.
  • Get access to information that navigates them to lifesaving mammograms and treatment.

That $68 million came in one walker and one donation at a time, so no matter how much or how little you can give, please click the button below and support us with a donation of any amount. There's still so much work to do.

Thank you so much!

P.S. If you want to learn more about the Making Strides walks or how your donation is helping to finish the fight against breast cancer, visit MakingStridesWalk.org.

 
How Breast Cancer Has Affect The Tom Bush Family


    Tom Bush Jr.'s wife, Laura, was a breast cancer survivor who "wanted  to do her part to help  other women detect, cope with and survive the  disease," according to granddaughter Megan Bush. 

 Laura Bush's commitment to educate and support her extended  dealership  family continues today. "My father, [president and CEO] John  Bush, continued the tradition to honor his mother," said Megan Bush. 

 "So many people are touched by cancer and breast  cancer in particular.  We all are one big family. When someone here is touched by the  disease, we all are affected."

Buttrill's father, Bill, (next to Andrew) was diagnosed in April 2009 and had a double mastectomy. Today, at 72, he is fully recovered from the surgery with little physical evidence of his ordeal.
