It is officially Truck Month at Leif Johnson Ford! Every year during our Truck Month, we donate $100 of each new truck sold to Susan G. Komen. This means that you are helping us save lives and give back to our community! Quick Facts: Just one $100 donation can cover the cost of a life-saving mammogram On any given day, about 1,000 women receive a free breast cancer screening made possible by Susan G. Komen Through Komen’s research and community programs, there are more than 3 million survivors and counting. From 1989-2014, there has been a 38 percent decrease in breast cancer mortality Last year during Truck Month, our Leif Johnson Ford family raised a total of $27,700 to donate to Komen Austin.
