WILLOW GROVE—1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer. That’s about 1.4 million who will be diagnosed this year. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Thompson Organization wanted to show support for survivors and those affected by it. For every 4-Wheel Alignment service, we will donate $10 to the Linda Creed Breast Cancer Organization.

Why did we choose this organization? The Linda Creed Breast Cancer Organization helps women locally, right here in our communities. The LCBCO, founded over 31-years ago, is dedicated to the early detection and treatment of breast cancer. LCBCO cover costs for free mammography screenings for uninsured/underinsured women in our communities, supporting patients every step of the way. The organization works with hospitals in our area.

“Without medical insurance coverage, these women often ignore well care and, too often, it also means ignoring the symptoms,” said Fran Orodeckis, Development Director, Linda Creed Breast Cancer Organization.

The LCBCO is a grassroots effort, fundraising more than $300,000 each year.

“We hear a lot that people work full time just to have healthcare, then when you need it most, you can’t get the help you need,” said Orodeckis. “That’s where we come in. We help to make sure everyone gets the assistance to get treatment.”

During the month of OCTOBER ALIGN WITH THOMPSON in the fight against breast cancer. It’s one way we can help make a difference, because ‘we’re in this together.’

“Each one of us can make a difference. Together we can make a change.”
