Lasco Ford, 2525 Owen Road, Fenton

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Fenton area residents are invited to join the Battle Against Breast Cancer. Local Ford dealer, Lasco Ford is hosting a Pump Up For Pink community rally to support the fight against breast cancer.

Partnering with the Pink Fund and Ford Warriors in Pink the event is scheduled for the third Friday of October at 4:00 in the afternoon. Guests are welcome to attend in the newly renovated showroom of Lasco Ford on Owen Road in Fenton.

Molly MacDonald, Founder and CEO of the Pink Fund highlights the afternoon’s scheduled activities. Molly speaks to the financial difficulties breast cancer survivors often face as they deal with the impact of the disease on their lives. A breast cancer survivor herself, Molly shares personal experiences and encouragement for families going through the ordeal of diagnosis, treatment, and the resulting challenges.

“A breast cancer diagnosis can destroy the financial health and well-being of the patient and their family. While in active treatment, many patients are unable to work and experience a loss of income that can result in catastrophic financial losses and the need to rebuild financial health. The Pink Fund provides financial support to help meet basic needs, decrease stress levels and allow breast cancer patients to focus on healing while improving survivorship outcomes.” The Pink Fund Mission web page.

Fun Activities and Donation Opportunities

In addition to the information shared, there will be giveaways and donation opportunities where 100% of the funds raised go to the Pink Fund. Families with individuals dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis are encouraged to attend. Guests can also purchase Ford Warriors in Pink merchandise with designs recently featured on Danica Patrick’s Ford Fusion race car.
