Bosak Auto Group revved up the pink factor during the month of October to fuel funding and awareness for breast cancer research. Bosak Auto Group’s 14th annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month fundraiser raised $3,355 for the Community Cancer Research Foundation. A donation was made from every car sold during the month of October.
“We all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. The fundraiser was organized to benefit local residents and help support our local communities,” said chief marketing officer Theresa Bosak, Bosak Auto Group.
Since 2007, funds from the auto group’s efforts each October benefit the Community Cancer Research Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of cancer care in Northwest Indiana and the Chicago south suburbs. The foundation links patients with research sponsored by the National Cancer Institute and other major research cooperatives worldwide.
Community Healthcare System offers patients access to research for prevention and/or treatment for every stage of breast cancer, from Stage 0 breast cancer to advanced disease. The Community Cancer Research Foundation also offers patient access to research for the prevention and/or treatment of lung, prostate, skin and colon cancers, lymphoma, adult leukemia and multiple myeloma.
“These funds will make it possible to connect local residents to clinical research trials from around the globe, close to home in their own neighborhood,” said Marie Macke, service line administrator, Oncology Services, Community Healthcare System. “We would like to sincerely thank Greg Bosak, Theresa Bosak, Skip Bosak and the Bosak Auto Group for their generosity and support of the Community Cancer Research Foundation.”
