OCTOBER IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

SAN ANTONIO, TX (October 10, 2017) VP Racing Fuels and Keystone Automotive have joined together to help increase breast cancer awareness and continue efforts to find a cure for this terrible disease. During the month of October, Keystone will donate $1.00 from the sale of every Pink VP Racing Container sold towards the Susan G. Komen organization. In return, VP will make a matching contribution at the end of the month as well to increase the contribution. Please join us in this cause, and visit your nearest Keystone Automotive retailer for more information or visit their website at www.keystoneautomotive.com

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer affecting women and about 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.
