Think pink for all new LEDs

AUTO Electrics Australia is going pink for the McGrath Foundation to help increase breast awareness by donating $25 for every "Pink Set" of LED driving lights sold.

AEA recognises that within the automotive trade women are the backbone of many auto electricians and transport industry customers.

Now they wish to show ongoing support for families experiencing breast cancer in Australia and to help increase breast awareness in young Australians, particularly young women, through their support of the McGrath Foundation.

Auto Electrics Australia is donating $25 from every set of pink LED lights sold to the McGrath Foundation.

"We would appreciate that when considering a purchase of LED driving lights, that you give consideration to AEA as funds raised from every Pink Set purchased will help the McGrath Foundation to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia and increase breast awareness in young Australians," Mr Hill said.

He said the cause was close to home as an AEA staff member had the unfortunate experience of being diagnosed with early stage breast cancer at 31.

Mandy Peckham discovered a lump in her breast and went to a doctor who assured her that she was too young.

It was only due to seeing the story of other women who had gone through a breast cancer experience, like Jane McGrath, that she decided to get a second opinion. Mandy has been in remission now for more than five years and has a beautiful young family.

Jane McGrath's personal experience has seen a team of passionate and dedicated people come together and step up to the challenge of making life for families experiencing breast cancer just that little bit easier.

Until there is a cure for breast cancer, the McGrath Foundation is committed to providing as much support as it can for families facing a breast cancer experience through the funding of McGrath Breast Care Nurses nationally, no matter where they live or their financial situation.

In addition, Jane's diagnosis at just 31 made her passionate about encouraging young women to be breast aware by knowing their breasts and being aware of any changes.

From this inspiration, the McGrath Foundation has now developed the innovative Curve Lurve program which focuses on empowering young women to look after their bodies, know what's normal for them and take action that promotes their own health and well-being, while at the same time debunking common community myths.

Help AEA to support the McGrath Foundation to ensure every family experiencing breast cancer in Australia has access to a breast care nurse no matter where they live or their financial situation, and that all young Australians are breast aware.
