Over the last three years, Rick McGill’s Airport Toyota has donated a total of $30,000 to the Breast Health Outreach Program (BHOP) at the University of Tennessee Medical Center Cancer Institute. In addition to free screenings from their mobile mammography unit, BHOP provides free breast health education classes; explaining the importance of early detection, sharing updates to screening guidelines and teaching the warning signs of breast cancer.
BHOP’s mobile unit enables the organization to deliver screenings and education to women who may not be able to otherwise afford or obtain access to them. Everything is “delivered six days a week on our mobile mammography unit in the communities where women work, live, shop, worship and gather,” said Dr. John L. Bell, director of the Breast Health Outreach Program.
“We all know someone who has been affected by cancer,” said Rick McGill’s Airport Toyota Sales Manager Peter Renzulli Jr. “So, we are honored to make a contribution toward fighting cancer in East Tennessee with the help of Toyota and our customers.”
Renzulli said that several members of the dealership’s family or their loved ones have dealt with cancer in one form or another over the years. So, when they heard about BHOP and its mission, they knew right away that they wanted to be involved.
This is the third consecutive year Rick McGill’s Airport Toyota has gifted $10,000 to BHOP, and Renzulli says it’s a tradition they plan to continue.
“We are grateful for their continued partnership and commitment to save and improve the lives of women in our region,” said Dr. Bell. “Without their support, these services would not have been possible.”
