A prominent glass repair company is stepping up in the fight against breast cancer.

Speedy Glass (5871 Minoru Blvd.) is joining forces with the Canadian Cancer Society in a Drive Pink campaign this October, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

In support of women living with the disease, Speedy Glass will be donating $2 from every pair of wipers sold. Tricco, Speedy Glass’ supplier, will match the donation. Funds raised will help local women with breast cancer live their lives more fully through ground-breaking research and services,

“Breast cancer is an issue that affects many local people,” says Fernando Pierri, director of operations for Belron Global Network of which Speedy Glass is affiliated. “It is for these reasons, that we are committed to supporting breast cancer research, services and screening education and awareness work.”

Progress is being made against the disease. The five-year net survival rate for breast cancer is 87 per cent. Early detection and increased screening rates combined with better treatment therapies have resulted in at least a 44 per cent decrease in the breast cancer death rate since the late 1980s.

“At the Canadian Cancer Society, we know that cancer changes people and that one in eight Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. But we feel a cancer diagnosis doesn’t have to define a person. Our goal is to improve the cancer experience by helping people live longer and enhancing their quality of life. We believe that life is bigger than cancer,” says Irina Novak-Calks, development officer, corporate programs for Canadian Cancer Society.”
