October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I’m glad that I can help raise awareness for breast cancer through my partnerships with brands that I know and believe in.
Do you know that breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women in the United States?
Here are some facts about breast cancer in the United States that you might not know, according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF):
- One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
- Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
- Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women.
- Each year it is estimated that over 252,710 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,500 will die.
- Although breast cancer in men is rare, an estimated 2,470 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 460 will die each year.
- On average, every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and 1 woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes.
- Over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the United States today.
I’m all about supporting great causes and organizations that help those who are in need, and especially breast cancer patients and their families. I am one of those families affected by breast cancer. Early last year, my younger sister was diagnosed with an early stage of breast cancer and raising awareness to this type of cancer is even closer to my heart now more than ever. She has done a lot of lifestyle changes since her diagnosis and is going through treatments now .. but our family can only hope for the best.
That’s why I’m so thrilled to have partnered with Valvoline Instant Oil Change (VIOC) once again this year for BCA month! Every October since 2012, VIOC has been helping to raise funds and increase awareness for breast cancer by offering the AutoTex PINK Wipers throughout the month with *proceeds going to National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). To date, VIOC has donated $86,500 to NBCF.
I recently took my car for an oil change at the VIOC near me and also had my AutoTex PINK Wipers installed to show my support for Breast Cancer Awareness month!
Friends, if you haven’t been to a VIOC to get your oil changed, you’ll love that you don’t need an appointment to get in. VIOC is a full service 15-minute drive thru oil change and I like that customers stay in their cars during the entire service, which makes it easy for busy people and moms like myself since the kids don’t have to get out of the car while getting the necessary car maintenance done. So the entire 15 minutes I waited inside my car while my car oil is being changed, I was able to catch up with emails that I had to reply to and made a phone call to my husband. Talk about making wise use of time and multi-tasking! An added bonus: the service guys who are helping me at the VIOC service shop were all very professional and friendly they made me feel at ease the minute I pulled up to their shop.
So this October, get your car oil changed at VIOC to experience the amazing customer service for yourself and then show your support for helping raise breast cancer awareness by purchasing their AutoTex PINK Wipers available only throughout the month of October! You can choose from full Pink Wipers (like I did) or Black Wipers with a small pink ribbon. These special wipers are available at participating VIOC locations only and the wiper blades fit 98% of cars, trucks and SUVs manufactured after 2003.
You can also print the coupon above to get discounts o your next oil change at VIOC!
Even better, VIOC is having a “D-D Day” (Double Donation Day) on Saturday, September 29, where they will be doubling donations to NBCF for all AutoTex PINK Wipers purchased that day. Also, October 19th is National Mammogram Day and VIOC is again doubling their donations to NBCF for all AutoTex PINK Wipers sales that day.
Also, you’ll get a chance to win up to a year of free oil changes at VIOC by entering the Pink My Ride Photo Contest!
