November 15, 2021

PHILADELPHIA (November 15, 2021)— Gary Barbera and his Barbera Cares Ambassadors of Gary Barbera’s on the Boulevard, in partnership with State Representative Jared G. Solomon, will present a check for $10,000 to Fox Chase Cancer Center on November 22, money that will help improve the lives of patients and families affected by breast cancer.

Gary Barbera’s on the Boulevard, a family owned and operated Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, and Ram car dealership in Philadelphia, has provided generous support for cancer research at Fox Chase through their “Help Kick Cancer to the Curb” campaign in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Each year, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is held in October, brings attention to the impact of breast cancer on individuals across the United States. About one in eight women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime.

In 2021, an estimated 281,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in this country, along with 49,290 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer, according to breastcancer.org.

The check presentation will take place on Monday November 22, 2021, at 8:00 a.m. in the East Garage on Fox Chase’s main campus at 333 Cottman Avenue in Philadelphia.
