October is breast cancer awareness month and Ronnie Ward Toyota of Ruston is donating $100 to the Susan G. Komen
Foundation for the Cure for every new vehicle sold through Oct. 31st.
Susan G. Komen fought breast cancer with her heart, body and soul. Throughout her diagnosis, treatments, and endless days
in the hospital, she spent her time thinking of ways to make life better for other women battling breast cancer instead of
worrying about her own situation. That concern for others continued even as Susan neared the end of her fight. Moved by
Susan’s compassion for others and committed to making a difference, Nancy G. Brinker promised her sister that she would do
everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.
That promise is now Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the global leader of the breast cancer movement, having invested nearly
$1.5 billion since inception in 1982. As the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists, we’re
working together to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to
events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®, and generous contributions from our partners, sponsors and fellow
supporters, we have become the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
Ronnie Ward and the employees of Toyota of Ruston are proud to be part of giving back to something so meaningful and
dear to so many people.
