Help Us Put the Brakes on Breast Cancer!
October 2011 kicked off the first Brakes for Breasts Fundraiser with 5 independent auto repair shops from Ohio participating. Their goal: Put the Brakes on Cancer by raising money and donating 100% of money raised to support Dr. Vincent Tuohy and his research for a breast cancer vaccine. Since 2011, Brakes for Breasts has become a national fundraiser with over 100 independent auto repair shops representing more than half of the United States! Over the past five years, Brakes for Breasts has raised over $492,320 for the cause.
During October, participating repair shops offer their customers free brake pads with their brake service; customers only pay for additional parts and labor. The participating shops agree to donate 10% of that amount to support Dr. Vincent Tuohy’s breast cancer vaccine research at the Cleveland Clinic.

As Dr. Tuohy says, “Prevention is the Cure”. Dr. Tuohy’s research will help create a world where your daughters and granddaughters will never have to worry about the tragedy of facing breast cancer. Additionally, this research is also spearheading a vaccine for ovarian, prostate and other cancers! Help make a difference and support Dr. Tuohy and his staff as they conduct research for vaccines to put the brakes on breast cancer!
