October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and one local auto repair business is doing its part to raise money to go towards finding a cure. Elysian Auto Service is participating in the 'Brakes for Breasts' nationwide event that benefits the Breast Cancer Vaccine Fund.
When it comes to the fight against breast cancer, not all pinks are equal. As we become more aware of the “pinkwashing” of America, we know that buying something in a shade of pink isn't necessarily doing anything to help the fight against breast cancer -- and some products can actually hinder it. That's why, as we spend our October supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month, getting the word out and doing our individual best to fund the cause as we see fit, we need to make sure we're supporting the fight well. (And of course, looking good while doing it -- that's also nice.)
